hehe i sense sarcasm in your reply :p
the bmw diesel engines over here are known to be the most reliable, best performing, just the best diesel engines available basically

im from belgium, a european country in between France and Germany and we have more diesel powered cars than petrol powered cars over here.
Has everything to do with gas prices:
1litre of fuel= 1.903$
which makes one gallon just over half a dollar :s

how much is a gallon over there in the us?

no, i wasnt being sarcastic. we dont get anything good when it comes to cars b/c of emissions. 1 gallon of gasoline is ~$2.30 and 1 gallon of diesel fuel is ~$2.40.

i miscalculated the price of petrol over here:
its 1.903$ a litre which makes it 7.2$ a gallon :s

we pay over 3 times more than u guys, no wonder a lot of our cars are diesel powered :p
