Bimmer did tried 524TD during the mid 80s for a few yrs, and equipped that engine in Lincoln Contirentals. I guess it never hit the critical mass as to keep bringing them here.
I dont know the reliability of these new BMW oil burners. I once bought a 1980 Volvo 6 cyl diesel and it turned out to be a real lemon.
BMW dsl do crank out more HP, is it going to be good time but not long time?
Unlike Mercs' 300D turbo engine they're tough as nails. They were running it at 200hp in the C111 test mule, but day in day out they detuned to 120 HP.
So as we all know buying dsl are for longevity, even newer mercs werent as cracked up to be, the 350sdl i dont think too many folks wanted to buy them used.
Nobody knew why they were rod throwers.
Some say the inline 6 dsl were better than the v6, as reason the v6 can fit in the ML w 163 body.
Bluetec has not been out very long so cant comment. And what price are the bluetec when u ran out, they say is a dealer service item, they sell and install it for u.
what the price? as i am asking i know i cant afford it.
