I think "leave for dead" is quite a bold claim. I've not driven either but I'm guessing looking at the performance figures and bhp figures I think in a traffic light race the 330d may be a car length or two ahead of the 328i at 70-80 mph, but I'd hardly call that "leave for dead".
If one had 100bhp more than the other then I'd expect it to leave it for dead in that case.
The F30 330d is no doubt a quick car, but watch this - just to put things back into perspective.
