BMW to release Diesel models Mid Oct 08
 
Finally. X5 Diesel. and 335 Diesel as well.

Quote:

We have just received official confirmation that the most awaited BMW 3 series diesel and the X5d will be available to us in the States in mid October. The BMW 335d and the X5 xDrive35d are getting BMW's dual turbocharged 3.0L inline six diesel starting this fall. The 265-hp, 425-lb.ft. torque monster will make these vehicles among the most fuel-efficient and best performing vehicles in their class.

So, for those of you waiting to take advantage of the diesel torque, the wait is almost over and soon enough you'll have the chance to purchase one. I was also hoping that we will have some news on the 535d which we have already seen being tested in Michigan last year.

No pricing has been released yet, but we were told that we should get some more information in the next couple of months.

a few years too late. Diesel price caught up and exceeding Gasoline price.

Yeah but you get more mileage from a tank, so your still better off.

only if the purchase pricing is the same (i.e: 335i Vs 335d) but diesel has historically commanded between $2,000-$7,000 more

Once you factor in the extra up front purchasing cost, it will take you 5-7 years to break even before reaping rewards of longer driving range

for X5 it's better though. More torque, for less money than the 4.8

I will not believe this diesel rumor mill unless I see official documents

I bet they're both automatics. The X5 is a given. :(
