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!
It makes plenty of sense... The MAJORITY of people in North America won't buy a 118d, plain and simple. Just because a few people might think they want it, BMW isn't stupid they won't spend all that money to federalize the small diesel engine for the small amount of people that might buy them.

You're barking up the wrong tree, BMW know's what they're doing.

If you want a small diesel so bad move to Europe.

and lol to $40 for a 118d being 'not bad'
