Wow its beginning to look like next years X3 and X4 will have LCI level changes. 10% power bump, new dash. Not sure buying one this year would be a good idea if one can avoid it.

BMW has ended diesel production for the US. it is indeed from the upcoming ban of all diesels in German cities and quite possibly all European cities moving forward.

There are about 50 2019 5 series diesels that are on the locater the last time I checked.


So the 3 series, 5 series and X diesels all are shelved or production has ended.


Clean diesel emits no carbon monoxide, but the particulate emissions are what has triggered their upcoming ban in German cities.

Its sad because BMW would have had a niche market all to themselves here in the US.

I would not call it a total ban.
Diesels in Europe are still a big thing. If they comply to the newest Euro 6d-TEMP emission levels. Which the BMW diesels, both I4 and I6 do. There might still be CBD environmental zones that requires electric or Hybrids though.

I am waiting for a G01 30d, built in Spartanburg. And it's not the only one being built there.. :-)

Why is it sad? You absolutely want that crap in your lungs?

That explanation seems a bit suspicious, no? If these bans haven't yet caused diesels to end production for Europe (and, as the above member "nogren" clarifies, they absolutely haven't) then why would they be the cause of diesels to end production in the US?

Not for ROW. If this is indeed true for the US, then lets see if we can get a source to confirm that information.
