Thanks guys! I must admit the 35d is extraordinary, and gets fantastic mileage.
I think people in the US and Canada will one day discover how great diesel power is, and will demand them from their importers.
I'm an American in Switzerland and I swore I would never drive a diesel. I then tried out a 330d and was converted. This is now my 3rd BMW diesel - 330d; 335d, X3 35d - and I can say that, in my opinion, it's the best way to go, especially on large vehicles such as the X3 and above.
