Mein Auto: 2015 X5 35d
What a sad time for US diesel owners. I was talking to my service associate the other day and he explained that the main reason for BMW pulling out of the market is because our fuel quality is very poor here in the states when compared to Europe. As a result the US vehicles see many fuel related problems that they simply do not experience over seas. I can attest to that as the owner of a 2015 X5 35d and resident of Illinois, where there is anywhere from 5-20% bio diesel added to the fuel. BMWs do not run well on bio, and even the owners manual says to use no more that 5% biodiesel. So chalk it up to our greedy oil industry for giving us a substandard product, among other things.
