    Segler gives a little hope for an M Diesel

    I've spoken on this..and I definitely think it's possible

    The M-diesel powered question came up in the same interview. Dr. Segler states that a market would need to be identified for a potential M diesel and at this point, nor the North American or asian market are in high demand of diesels. Another question concerns the technology. In the diesel, there are currently no high-revs and “that’s why an M-diesel might not be technically feasible”, said Dr. Kay Segler.

    However, the M boss points out that BMW’s customers are increasingly purchasing M-Sport packages and M accessories for their diesel vehicles, “therefore, diesel and sportiness are not mutually exclusive”.

    It is definitely possible now that high revs have been thrown out the window.

    Seriously, they need to stop with this putting M on everything stuff.

    I REALLY HOPE they dont slap M badges on everything to try and boost sales because of the terrible condition the economy is in now.

    "Hey that car isnt selling, well, let's make it an M car!"

    Although I would love to see an M diesel, I just hope they don't start getting M happy.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
