I don't agree..... why is Honda bringing a diesel to N.America now... and regular Civics are 1.9L motors.... city golf, rabbits... 4 cyclinder... they are all popular.... not to mention the new Toyota Prius....
I think it's more of the BIG 3 controlling what you buy..... if we don't make it... then you can't bring it or buy it....
It makes no sense... the 1's are already here.... they are selling a lot of 335D and X5 D's since gas is crawling back up.... even look at the add VW has out for their diesel pocking fun at hybrids....
BMW should be ahead of the curve.. not behind it!
They even have hybrids in Germany... but , not here!
