You'll have to go all the way back to 1985 to find another BMW diesel model that was officially sold in the US--the e28 524td. http://524td.com/ and http://mye28.com. e28's in general are some of the best BMW's ever made but would definitely require more upkeep then a new VW diesel...

Do you drive a lot of miles every day? Factoring in the higher fuel cost for diesel and probably higher purchase price (compared to a gas model), an extra 10 mpg might not make much of a difference in terms of total cost of ownership. I know if I were 16 again I'd probably go for the BMW over the VW diesel...
