I am not sure but I hope so. I think BMW has closely evaluated the diesel options and sell rate of cars they have offered in the US. I think it is why the new F30 was not offered with the 335d to start with even though the N57 was already federalized. And they have the ActiveHybrid 3 which I think will hit the States in the near future. So I have a vague understanding of the challenge they face I (for one) hope they give us the option of the smaller diesels.
