I'm intending to buy the new BMW 3 Series (F30), but I don’t know if I should go for a 318d 136hp or a 316d 116hp with a better pack of options. I’m a calm driver, but I’m afraid that this difference of power could make a huge difference concerning the comfort. Could you please advise me?
Kind regards, Fernando.

That's quite an individual choice really and before you make the decision try to drive both versions.
I'd be inclined to say go for the 316d with extra options - and delete the badge on the boot! However, if you regularly carry a lot of people, or you drive on roads where you need to overtake, then it's worth buying the 318d, as the extra performance will be of help.
Come back to us if you need anything else.
