The base of 2012 diesel is largely boosted, I won't be surprised to see the current eco credit extended.

I was intestered in diesel, however, I found many options in 2011 were forced throwed in base price of 2012 model now; For example, in order to get rear side shader, real climate control, you have to order the new $3500 "premium package", which was in $820 real climate package in 2011 model. I would much prefer 2011 options configuration.

In 2012 model, we are now debating to get 35i rather than 35d.
I agree with you about the 2011 configuration, I was willing to pay $900 for rear climate just to get the shades but $3500 is a bit much just to get sun shades. I don't need much in the way of options, I only wanted heated front seats, the iPod adapter and rear climate (that is how my 2010 is equipped) 2 of the 3 are now standard but I will have to learn to live without the rear shades. The 2012 has a lot more standard features. In your next post you mention using $2500 in addition to the $3500 Eco credit. Is your dealer offering an additional $2500?
I'll keep my guns, freedom and money.......You can keep the "change"
