BMW announces 116d model


BMW has announced that they’ll release a new 116d with super mileage. That’s great and a testament to technology. Unfortunately for the diesel-hugging crowd in the US, there are no plans to bring it here.

Now, I’m not going to say that diesels don’t have a purpose because they do. In semi trucks, gravel haulers, and maybe city buses. But as a driving enthusiast, I understand they make a ton of torque but I just don’t get any thrill out of whipping an engine all the way to it’s 4000RPM redline.

In any event, if you really want one, you’ll be able to get one if you relocate to the UK. Party on.
