6,400 Euros in Germany. But the twin-turbo Diesel has close to the same equipment as the 4.8i there, so you have to adjust for equipment. And BMW pricing in the USA often differs considerably from that in the Fatherland, as do equipment levels.

My guess is 3K more than a 3.0si, if similarly equipped. My own gut feeling is that Americans won't pay more than that. We won't know until much closer to the on-sale date.

I am guessing about 2K over the price of the similarly displaced gas engine, which is 3.0si. There is much more product cost having two turbos and a ton of emmissions controls, including exhaust, probably more than $2k, but they may decide to accept a lower percent margin to help introduce. they have to get this right and not over-shoot the price and fail on diesel. too much infrastructure invested with dealers, etc. Mercedes I believe did the same for both cars and SUV diesels, maybe $1-2k more than gas engine of similar displacement. If they go a tad more, hopefully they throw in more standard equip.

I wouldn't say that is much HP, but the torque is high. You have to compare much more than just HP though, to understand the value and performance equation. I still think most Americans will not pay more than $2000 more than the 3.0si gas engine.

With diesel hovering around 4 bucks a gallon, there won't be anyone paying said price increase.

I agree that any diesel premium looks bad when the diesel price of fuel offsets the economy gains. The diesel engine premium will have to be small. this also puts more emphasis on small BMW diesels, and that particular diesel market (rather than premium/upscale diesel market BMW is trying to create in US).

The US deparately needs to build more fuel refineries, and using the type that is seen in Europe (where they refine with different methods, produces more diesel fuel per barrel of oil, with less gas and jet fuel per barrel).
