Thanks for the link Andrew. After reading that thread, it looked like it became a bit heated. sigh...Here's a link you might be interested in...
Also, you were saying about MINIs not necessarily having to be mated to petrol engines - do you not yet have the CooperD (aka Dooper) in your area in either Hatchback or Clubman form??
All the best,
So maybe BMW should dump the Peugeot motor and install one of theirs instead!From Motoringfile.com
the current diesel in the MINI range is a PSA engine and is not capable of a urea injection system that BMW uses on it’s new US diesel offerings without some incredibly expensive engineering and retrofitting. Neither of which make sense for what would be a niche vehicle in the US market.
The engines may emit less CO2 or less overall, but they pump out something else instead,
