    Can one of you new Mk7 owners confirm B20 is OK?

    Before the cars were sold here there were several articles (here's one) implying that B20 is approved for use in the new EA288 engine. Can one of you new owner's post a pic of the owner's manual page that references the biodiesel limit? Thanks in advance and congrats on your new tdi.

    BMW M550d xDrive- the ultimate diesel?

    I rode in a 550i xDrive while in Germany last month and was blown away on how it cruised the autobahn. The pull from 120mph was fantastic! :D. I can't imagine how much better the M550d would be. Unfortunately, there are no plans to bring it to N America. link
