March 2003 will see BMW stake new ground in its product line-up with the production of its first ever diesel Coup, the BMW 330Cd.

The 330Cd features an uprated version of BMWs acclaimed 3.0-litre diesel engine and will arrive in the UK in 2004. The new 3.0-litre unit will also slot into the 330d Saloon and Touring models next spring in the UK when the following range of styling and performance enhancements will also hit the UK showrooms:

Introduction of the BMW 330Cd (lhd March 2003; rhd 2004)
Uprated 6 cylinder diesel engines
New six speed manual transmissions added to the range
New six-speed SSG transmission available on BMW 330Ci/325Ci Coup and Convertible
Styling enhancements on Coup, Convertible and Compact
DSC standardised across the range
BMW 330Cd
BMWs first ever diesel Coup will feature the perfect marriage of an uprated version of the muscular 3.0-litre diesel engine to the dynamic poise and handling of the renowned 3 Series Coup chassis.

The new, lighter engine in the BMW 330Cd offers an extra 20 bhp, increased low-down torque (max 410 Nm available at 1,500 rpm), improved top speed and 0-62 performance. Improved fuel consumption makes the package even more unbeatable.

The uprated 3.0-litre diesel will also be added to the 330d Saloon and Touring.

More power I dunno, but I bet it has more torque.


No diesel bimmers in NA, forget about it.

These engines will not make it over to NA. The sulphur content in our fuel is too high for the emission control systems of these cars.
