I suspect that will not go over well here on the boards. Fingers crossed that it miraculously grows another turbo in the few months between now and delivery so it has the performance worthy of being called a '28'.

What upsets me most is the fact that BMW did build four US spec 328d RWD cars (three US, one Canadian), with two more US scheduled to be built soon. So they are ready to give them to us. If they're not coming, only BMW NA is to blame.
It is 100% certain 328d will not be rebadged European 320d.

The US model will require urea injection and will be tuned for more power due to lack of CO2 tax.

Same with 535d. Our model will surely use the same engine as the X5d, which is different from the rest of the world.
