Seriously, they are rare. Not just for BMW. If I'm commuting and see 500 cars on the way home, I might see 2-3 diesel cars, if I'm looking hard. Hybrids outnumber diesels here (Dallas TX area), probably 5:1.

It's a bit of chicken-and-egg for me. It doesn't seem like many of the filling stations near me even offer diesel fuel. So, I'm sure I'd have the slightest bit of anxiety just trying to find a convenient place to fill up.
