And just to confirm, Autocheck.com reports that WBAFA53561LH78055 was built in Germany, which is funny because L is the Spartanburg plant, which I'm pretty sure has always been in South Carolina.

I wonder if winter wheels that fit current 335i would fit the F30.

Didn't the euro 335i had 306hp due to different emissions? if so they REDUCED it by 4hp.

this reminds me of E36 and E46 scenario, when e46 came out and was slower than e36 with the same engine because it was heavier.

e36 328i
vs
e46 328i

My 328i xDrive was built in Germany

double the price premium.
Deisel - price premium

It would have to start at $55k probably..

F30 Diesel for US

I'm still not clear if we are getting an F30 Diesel in the US from the get-go.
Any ideas anybody?

We won't know for sure until the 13th, but it's unlikely we'll get the 320d since we haven't before. 335d is scheduled for "later" (probably 2013 MY, I guess).

With the 3 ActiveHybrid coming, I would not necessarily count on the diesel in the US at all.

If you think that is bad, think of the wait once you order one...or even worse, those of us waiting for a F32...
