Are the 540D real twin turbo or twin scroll in the US?

I know by HP and torque in Europe they are probably twin T. But did they bring them in the US with twin as well?

2018 Because they haven't delivered it yet to my home, there is a reason why I'm asking

According to this article: BMW B57 Wikipedia it's a twin turbo engine. Sounds like a lot of fun! I've driven the 335D and it was fun, I'm sure the 540 is even more fun. That's almost 400hp and over 500,lb/ft torque!

What you read is for the European platform, US may be different, I've been trying to educate myself about 540D for the US but since they did not bring a lot of 540D in the US, what I've been reading & gathering it's been for the overseas platform,

Yeah, I guess so. I did see though that the US version has the B57D30T0 engine, which is a twin turbo, it's around 300hp and 500 ft/lb torque. You'll have to let us know when you get it.
