Diesel Forum Membership Application?

Hi, all...

I'm about to sign the temporary adoption papers (two years' worth) for my 2010 335d...Monaco Blue/Saddle, Premium, Sport, Cold Weather, Nav, CA, Paddles, Rear Shades, iPod, Logic7...pretty much everything except for Park Assist, Phone (I'm sure I've forgotten something or things).

I'd like to join the Diesel Forum, but wasn't really sure as to how to do so. If there is something that I have to do, and missed, please respond.

Thanks to all, and I am really looking forward to it!

Just as an aside, though perhaps unnecessary, if you're a BMW CCA member, don't forget to send in the Membership Rewards documentation for your rebate...I am pretty sure that the club is very strict about the 60-day limit in which to submit the form, with all required documentation...no faxes or EMails are accepted. I'm sure you know all this, but it's just offered as a reminder.

Richard

I want BMWNA to allow dealers to sell the 320d.

That might just be my ideal ride.

if it were only that easy. they need to certify the whole drivetrain for emmisions. the 20d would be a great engine option to have in an X1 or 3er, but BMWNA needs to commit to the diesel market over here.

What's irritating is that our EPA cannot accept Euro testing results. They should have a world standard's rating system for emmissions. Should save billions in cost. But then again, when was the last time government allowed a loss of "revenue?"

I understand. I waited a very long time to get a BMW and kept waiting and waiting hoping the 320d would make an appearance. I finally had to slum it this past fall with the ride you see in my sig pic.

Some day this will be located in an archeological dig outside of Sacramento.

OK, so the party has moved over here now!

I'm off on a trip to Argentina right now. They have the 320d here. Many cars are diesels, typical of latin america. A local said 99% are manuals, not too many automatics.

A friend just traded in his 3 series (gas) for a little Merc (C something or other). I wanted to tell him he was stupid to do so but he had already convinced himslef the Merc was a better car. I wasn't feeling it in the back seat I can say. Diffrent strokes.

I'm in Madrid right now and all (most) you see here is diesel. Not quite sure on the auto vs manual but from the few I have looked into it seems fairly split. Some really cool cars here.

I gotta say, I am really diggin those 1 series hatchbacks. Four door and two door - I think they look better in person. I would see a market in the US

Enjoy the trip !

Hey Flyingman !

You might set automotive journalistic history. I have never read a vehicle review written from the backseat perspective.

Feed us some more details.
