Lol. I've been waiting for that. Personally I wish that our cars were capable of water separation in their stock form. I would imagine that the top reasons for excluding the technology were...
1. Cost
2. Space
3. BMWs are well-documented to defy the laws of physics and chemistry. When filling a BMW with diesel, water is physically incapable of being carried by the fuel. Similarly, transmission fluid can not degrade when the transmission in which it resides is installed into a BMW.
4. Cost
5. Weight

dM, do you happen to know what (if anything) our vehicle has to protect against water in the fuel? Does the filter also act as some sort of dryer or is it simply number 3 kicking in?
