And BTW...are you *the* Jonathan Spira of The Diesel Driver and the BMW boards? If so,I'm surprised to see that you're a newcomer to MB World but better late than never.Also,if you're Jonathan...you probably don't remember but last year you told me that you had it on good authority (from a BMW executive) that an F10 diesel would arrive here within months.I waited and waited but decided to wait no longer so I'm now in a Bluetec.You should scold that executive for having misled you.
Actually I do remember. And BMW has changed its mind several times over since then. About the BMW exec, it was the late (and great) Jack Pitney. Unfortunately, he died in a tragic accident last summer so...
Re your figures, problem is I'm trying to reconcile what MB says on an S350 BlueTec, not an E350 BlueTec.
The figures ARE very confusing regardless.
Congrats on your E350 BlueTec by the way. If you want to see mine in Sindelfingen, click here
P.S. nice to see you here!
