I've driven both gas and diesel X5's (own and loaners) for extended periods of time and would strongly disagree with you on this. I'd say that you get the most bang for the buck driving in the city,...

My dealer confirmed yesterday that there will be a diesel X3 early next year. I think officially BMW states it'll be "first half of 2014".

I have a 2011 X5 5.0i, which was built summer 2010 - and because of that even though it does have the iPod integration, it's still clunky a bit - there are no BMW Apps, you can control the iPod part...
