Get your diesel on. BMWs now qualify for IRS tax credits

BMW ADVANCED DIESEL MODELS QUALIFY FOR IRS ADVANCED LEAN BURN TECHNOLOGY MOTOR VEHICLE TAX CREDIT

Purchasers of 335d Sedan and X5 xDrive35d Sports Activity VehicleŽ qualify for up to $900 and $1,800 tax credit respectively
Woodcliff Lake, NJ - February 4, 2009... BMW of North America, LLC confirmed today that both of its BMW Advanced Diesel models with BluePerformance technology have qualified for an Internal Revenue Service Advanced Lean Burn Technology Motor Vehicle Tax Credit. In choosing vehicles that will burn significantly less fuel and produce significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions, purchasers of the 335d Sedan will qualify for up to a $900 tax credit while purchasers of the X5 xDrive35d Sports Activity VehicleŽ will qualify for up to a $1,800 tax credit.

"Qualification for these tax credits is further recognition of the remarkable efficiency of our new BMW Advanced Diesel models," said Jim O'Donnell, President of BMW of North America, LLC.

Both BMW Advanced Diesel models keep the promise of the Ultimate Driving MachineŽ while delivering class leading fuel efficiency. With 265 horsepower and 425 lb-ft of torque available from the 3.0-liter sequential twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder diesel engine, the 335d is capable of accelerating from 0 - 60 mph is six seconds flat while the X5 xDrive35d will do it in just 6.9 seconds. In spite of this level of performance the 335d Sedan, the most fuel efficient BMW ever sold in the US, delivers 23 miles per gallon city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway according to the US EPA. The X5 xDrive35d is rated at 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. Both models are capable of traveling nearly 600 miles on a single tank of fuel.

The 335d Sedan and X5 xDrive35d Sports Activity VehicleŽ are now available in BMW centers across all 50 states.

I never would have bought a SUV despite my fiance loving them, but with this type of gas mileage and performance, diesel technology means there will be an X5 in my garage next year.

Cheers,
Mark

we have a 2001 x5 and my wife loves it, they really are great SAV's, we tow with it too, and that 400+ torque would let me tow my toys in the 6x12 trailer with no problem

You can get it chipped with your tax return $: 350 hp and 500 ft.lbs. torque!

Looking forward to the 330d and 320d some day.
