Starting in 2014 (or before) the Euro cars will be the same as ours. That is when their emissions requirements catch up to ours. The reality is (and I think others here agree) that BMW and MB and Audi/VW have been using the US/CA for a beta test site for the new emissions systems required soon over there.
