Mein Auto: was 530d, is X5d 2011
This is completely different engine. The one in E70 was bi-turbo (originally 289 HP, downgraded for the US market to 265), the one in F15 is single turbo.

F15 diesel is 30d Euro spec, but BMW is fooling Americans with the 35d badge. F15 40d is the real comparable engine with the gas version 35i. Interesting that they are asking premium for the fake 35d (real 30d) over 35i when even in Europe where diesels are more popular 30d is cheaper than 35i...
