    Default Night out with the bimmer

    Lucky me i got to make a short trip to lhr on this beauty(530D).
    I was shocked with the torque the E270 CDI benz had to offer but this beemer redifined the meaning of diesel torque in my dictionary. even at 80km/hr if i stepped on the gas i could feel the tail go out slightly!
    Touched 230km/hr on flat road on motorway. It felt much more stable then the Benz.

    Night out with the bimmer -538124

    Interior of the benz was better no doubt but i liked the seats of the beemer more. Beemer is more fun to drive for sure

    if you think this has torque, you should try the E320CDI (also a 3.0L),...221bhp@4000,... 376lb/ft@1600rpm!!

    That's 32 percent more power and 27 percent more torque than the 270 CDI. the 530d makes 218bhp and 369lb/ft, so yet another victory for MB!

    WOOHOO!!!

    I haven't driven the diesel version of the 530 but my dada used to have the '05 530i and that car was just monstrosity. And you are completely right about the tail- just a little bit of aggression on the throttle and you could feel the oversteer.

    Did you check the fuel average??

    First it was Civic vs. Corolla.


    Now it's 530d vs. E320 CDI

    its a BIMMER people... not beemer..

    Bimmer vs Beemer
    Enthusiasts vs others
    Definitions:
    Bimmer - proper accepted slang for BMW cars. Most people don't know this.
    Beamer/Beemer - proper accepted slang for BMW motorcycles. You will hear this term used incorrectly by many people.
