Iíve had a BMW F30 328i for the last three years. Other than a few niggles (and rattles) itís been a good thing; all the power one really needs (maybe less than one wants), and with the M stuff, looks and feels the part.

Iíd like to replace it with a 340e. With 250kW and 500Nm on tap and being able to drive to work and back silently, it satisfies both my green and mean streaks.

One small problemÖ BMW doesnít make one! Yes, they have a 330e but thatís just too tame. Címon, BMW! All the hard work is done (a 40e is available in both the X5 and 5 Series), so what are you waiting for?
