Figured I'd see how many people like me wish for a diesel engine here in the US...

Bring 2.0d
Bring 3.0d
Bring both
Bring none

I'd say bring the 3.0. Diesel still isn't quite popular enough to support the expense of importing 2 models so might as well go with the more powerful one to appeal to more potential buyers...

Let's also bring European diesel fuel standards to the US -- smaller percentage of sulfur, which is the largest cause of particulates in the exhaust. Unfortunately, even if an X3 diesel did come to the US, I think it (like most diesels) would still be banned in CA. :thumbdwn:

Here's a good article about diesel that I found on Edmunds:
