Two New X3 models and price increase (10/11) for German Market

First of all, this does not apply to the North American market. So most of y'all can probably disregard this thread.

The price list and equipment list is out for the October 2011 production (model year 2012). It includes the details for the new entry-level xDrive20i and the big-gun xDrive35d with the N57 engine and 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Prices (incl. 19% VAT and fees)
xDrive20d: 39.600€ (184bhp)
xDrive30d: 49.500€
xDrive35d: 54.500€ (313bhp; 6,1 l/100km; 162g/km)

xDrive20i: 37.600€ (184bhp; 7,9 l/100km; 184g/km)
xDrive28i: 46.200€
xDrive35i: 52.400€

One thing is for sure: That top diesel is going to be quite the speed demon. It would please eco-mentalists and enthusiasts alike.

New Accessories (maybe new, I'm not sure)
  • BMW Rear Entertainment system (€1.090)
  • BMW Tablet Rear Entertainment System (€399)
  • Infrared wireless headphones for Rear Entertainment and Tablet Systems
  • Bluetooth headset
  • Car Hotspot (allows for internet connectivity while driving with certain mobile devices (Apple iPad, laptop, mobile phones)
  • Bluetooth Snap-in Adapter
  • Electric Driver's data log. €990
  • iPhone Dock (not for vehicles with navigation)

Is the 35d still the M57 but with a diff't tune and 8 speed transmission? I'd love 313hp in my X5
If the X5 got this diesel engine, it would smoke the 35i

Currently, US-spec 335ds and X5s are the only ones still using the M57, which does NOT meet the required Euro-5 emissions category.

If the euro emissions standards are that strict -- why do you suppose the euro diesels are not permitted in this market area because of --- emissions problems????? Seems strange to me, they must be measuring something differently in europe than the gods at EPA and CARB do here.

They do measure it differently. CARB has very stringent restrictions on NOx emissions, whereas the European directives for the various Tiers are more restrictive of CO² and particulate matter.

Thanks! Well, that sort of begs the question of "why" IMHO? I mean the diesels are supposed to be environmentally friendly on both sides of the pond, yet the euros and CARB/EPA are measuring different things. Since the end result is supposed to be "green" it would appear that one set of criteria should cover them both. Just my thoughts.

you are saying that X5 35d does not meet meet Euro-5 which is in force in Europe since 2009 (not sure exact date)? it would be very surprising, at least for me

That's true. The X5 40d meets the Euro-5 standards and has been sold in Europe since mid 2010.

The US standard is concerned about air pollution and smog. The European standards are concerned with CO2 which contributes to Climate Change but does not have the same contribution to local air pollution.
