Rumor has it that BMW sells 60% of their cars as diesels in Europe, but nothing serious here in the US. I just bought my daughter a 2010 Jetta TDI Cup Edition, only because I couldn't find an equivalent BMW. What a wonderful car the TDI is! I am currently looking for a replacement for my E46 M3 (full DINAN S2), and believe that my next car should get at least 30mpg in city driving. I'd love to buy another BMW (I've had 13 since '67) but BMW/USA refuses to import anything serious. How about it BMW: a 120 turbo diesel with dual clutch? I'd happily pay well over $40K for a fully loaded coupe. As it is, I may have to buy (this is hard..)an Audi.
