Same with 535d. Our model will surely use the same engine as the X5d, which is different from the rest of the world.
100% certain?

look at these pics of the presentation given last July:

Clearly shows which engines were being planned. And the power matches that of the 320d. Unless you have inside info that trumps this, we have nothing else to go on.

Blue performance option available in Europe is urea injection.

The engine in the current x5d is being replaced. The power output shown in the pic matches that of the Euro 530d with blue performance.

If you are a BMW insider than please share more detail than what we have already.
