We have a pretty good comparison here between some of BMW's newest diesel engines. The 520d uses the 190hp 2.0L 4 cylinder B47. The rest of the cars all use a variation of the B57 turbo diesel engine. The 530d has the 265hp 3.0L (B57D30M0) engine, the 540d uses a 316hp 3.0L (B57D30), and the M550d utilizes the 400hp quad turbo 3.0L (B57D30C) engine and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.4s which is faster than an F10 M5.
