personally go with the 320. the little extra power goes a long way ( i believe there is more torque than the 318.)

what is the mileage on both ?

I think you should go for the 320 as it is a 6 cylinder engine. BMW 6 cylinder engines make the most beautiful noise.... With the sound it will feel lots more powerful....

the four-cylinder trades less power (7 bhp) for more torque (8 lb-ft), is more economical, and 80 kg lighter.
