M550D engine - BMW tech says it'll fit in a 3 series...

Seven paragraphs down, last sentence.... http://www.autoblog.com/2012/02/24/2...-drive-review/

If I could have this engine in something as light as a 3 series and possibly have xDrive, I think I would be in heaven.

Can we start a petition for the M350d xDrive?

It's sad that they have no plans on bringing THIS car to the US, and I am already dreaming of the 3 series variant.

That 3 would be a monster. It would need a special tranny/diff combo to take all that torque. X drive would def help. If that happens nobody would buy the gas versions.

If it ever comes to Canada it would also do likewise in the USA.

The engine will technically fit I suppose-- since it's the same displacement motor with the 3rd turbo added.

You're gonna need a bigger DPF, methinks.

Cool

I'm surprised this hasn't had more attention. I was going to make a similar post. I had a thought of importing one to the UK and then having the engine swapped over into my E90 BMW 335D Chasis. A lot of money I know, but the end result would be AMAZING!!!!!!

The engine wasn't designed with the DPF in mind. BMW stated they specifically weren't bringing this car over because there was no room to include the additional emissions equipment necessary for the US.

Hmmm, I was under the impression it had DPF. Don't all new diesels in Europe have DPF's to meet emissions?

http://www.netcarshow.com/bmw/2013-m...drive_touring/

The exhaust treatment system includes a diesel particulate filter and oxidation catalytic converter, which is located close to the engine in the same casing. More efficient exhaust cooling, meanwhile, minimises the formation of nitrogen oxides. And standard-fitted BMW BluePerformance technology, which includes a NOX storage catalytic converter, helps the new diesel engine powering the BMW M550d xDrive to meet the EU6 exhaust standard not due to come into force until 2014.

There's a company here in Germany that does put this engine into 1 series e87s and f20s So i guess it should work for the 3 series aswell.

I must learn more german. I'm liking the idea of the v10 transplant into the 1er...I wonder if you could also squeeze the ESS works in there...
