: The economical break-even point for buying a 320D
: instead of a 323i is reached at between 4.000 - 12.000 miles per year in most european countries
: (depending on taxes, price gas/diesel and price of car). To simplify a bit southern europe is soon to be dominated by diesels while northern europe (like i think the UK in special) is more moderate in (tax) enthusiasm of the diesels.
The comparasion for break-even should really apply to the 318i instead of the 323i even if the performance figures of 320d in most respects is similar to or better than the 320i.
A 320d is about the same price as a 320i on most markets.
