I now have over 22k miles on my 2011 Touareg TDI. The build quality is superlative, not a single squeak or rattle or problem of any kind.

The x3 20d with 3.73 final drive is only rated a couple of mpg better than the x3 30d with a 2.81 final drive. The 30d is much quicker.

The rest of the world gets the n57 3.0L 40d with an 8 speed trans and 3.15 final drive vs our old m57 35d with a 6 speed and 3.64 final drive.

It only makes sense that BMW will introduce the 40d...

I wonder what the oil change interval is for the Scorpion. I have to wonder if BMW would approve b20 if they required oil change at say 6000 miles. Not likely since they pay for the first 4 years 50k...

GM uses an injector down stream from the engine for dpf regen. This allows for the use of b20 since oil dilution isn't a problem. Sure sems like a better way to go than the post injection system in...

The 47-50 mpg that you mentioned is imperial mpg, multiply those numbers by .83 and that will give you US mpg.

You also mentioned that you are unimpressed with the 335d mpg numbers. I averaged...

The reduced mpg is very strange, almost sounds like it is stuck in a dpf regen cycle.

The low def condition is simple, you can add some yourself, there are threads on this topic.

If your sales rep ends up being correct about this it adds to his credibility in regards to a 40d/ 8 speed version for the USA!
