If you are comparing prem gas to the cost of diesel as you should then you will find the diesel is the way to go. We went from averaging 15 miles day to day driving to 22 when we switched.
I didn't know the steering was different, but good to know. My X5 SAV's steering is hydrolic and it's pretty heavy as well. The 20x10 front wheels may have something to do with it.
I don't think you want to put non-premium gas in a BMW, so I was comparing premium vs. diesel.
