Why so much hate to the Americans. BMW sells vehicles for a profit. If his two largest market are Europe and America followed by Asia and the rest, don't you think you they should produce vehicle that will sell in mass quantity.
It like having a burger joint and only selling veg burger because your European client think it offensive to kill animals. Eventually ever other client will leave to buy it somewhere else.
So, was I excited about the diesel model. Yes.
At 125k it and does not matter if the car gets xx mpg.
My only thought is could If it closer to 200k is that I rather own the new M3 and M5. There goes the MPG.
