    Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and after selling my Impreza, I was in a dilema as to what to get next but it soon dawned on me to get another BMW as the best all round car i have ever owned was a 318is. so I am now looking for a 320d.
    My question is, What is the easiest/most obvious way of telling the difference between a 137bhp and a 150bhp model if they are both 2001 models. I have never driven either models so i have nothing to compare them against.
    I hope i haven't asked a daft question.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I have filled in my profile as if i own a MY99 320d which to be honest i very nearly brought untill i realised that for a bit more money i could get a 150bhp version. I will update this as and when i make the purchase.

    Hi mate and welcome to the site

    The only noticeable difference I can see is that the 150bhp model has a 0-60mph time of about a second quicker!

    Have a look on this page for more info and figures
