I have a really short answer to that: no. Chris Harris seems to agree.

I also drove the coupe version to Prague and the less powerful 318d wagon on my way to the Nürburgring, and these cars really manage to tick all the boxes. No wonder everybody wants to beat the 3 Series, with Jaguar being the latest in the queue.

Say what you will about BMW, but they do know how to make a diesel family car.
