      @S.C. Gordon It's great! handling/driving and loving the interior. i did get the AWD version because i live in RI and we do get our fair share of snow sometimes unfortunately i haven't been able to test it out yet as i've only had ownership for about a week and half now. But i must say you don't get the feeling in the steering like in other cars that you have AWD. the lighting on the interior and dash are definitly a plus and im very happy with the audio and Nav the mouse square takes a bit to get used to but after you use it for about 3 days it just becomes memory. i went from a 200k 2005 g35 coupe to this and im quite happy with the Lexus 3.5 v6 aswell tho i must say the ticking form the fuel injection does make you wary of the vehicle but is a normal sound that they all make just for a heads up.

    Diesels get better MPG when under load than petrol engines, that’s why every commercial engine is diesel

            You don't want a diesel that has DEF, EGR, or DPF. There is reason truckers will pay extra for a new truck with a 20 year old rebuilt engine.

                  I loved my y2k tdi beetle, but everything you said here is true. (thankfully I only payed 3900 and got 6 years out of it)
                  Parts are super expensive, working on them is a PITA.
                  He died back in may and I replaced him with a 2000 tacoma 4wd. (super well maintained, low miles)
                  hoping to get him to 300k or more miles!

                              Government is full of busy body morons who know mandating things benefits them and their job longevity and doesn't do a single thing to help anything.
                              Twenty years ago in European countries they were touting diesels for many years about how economical they were and reliable. Due to EU governmental involvement and endless "green initiatives" claiming diesels were "better for the environment" and "polluted less" and had "less carbon dioxide emissions" driving a diesel was environmentally friendly.
                              Bottom line is government meddles in places they don't belong to mandate things that don't help at all and they all keep their jobs because they're paid to be useless and meddling morons.

                              Regardless of any governmental involvement diesels are absolutely necessary for over the road hauling.
                              Over the road hauling has no other better alternative than diesel fuel.

                                  My BMW 1-series diesel gets almost Prius mileage. I believe a 116d would get mileage even like the latest Prius.

                                  With US gas prices I would maybe drive petrol, but with European gas prices the difference is HUGE. Diesels are taxed higher in Sweden but are still way cheaper.

                                                  I'll never give up my diesel until they make a gasoline equivalent that gets the same MPG and puts out as much torque.

                                                      I have a 2012 E70 BMW x5 35d Diesel like the one shown, with 97k miles. The only non-routine maintenance it has needed was a glow plug and glow plug driver, total cost was $325. I get an average of 22mpg and drive mostly city towing a trailer and have a rather heavy foot. On an 800 mile road trip with average speed of 85mph I got 25mpg.

                                                      They do not smell like a Cummins or a 7.3. The fuel efficiency is far better than other vehicles in this performance category, like an Audi/VW etc, and they cost considerably less to buy than anything else I was shopping for. A similar mileage tahoe/suburban/pilot/highlander etc etc costs more than a diesel X5 to buy by at least 20%

I know that americans like big 4, 5 L petrol engines, and there an anti-diesel agenda in the US. However, research suggests that diesel cars are better for the environment, you only mentioned the NOx emissions, but you forgot to mention the CO2 which is always much higher in petrol engines. I had a few petrol and diesel cars, I would love a petrol car but I can't let go to the diesel, the fuel economy and the torque are just not there in petrol cars.

                                                                                            Diesels are actually much more efficient than their petrol counterparts at least when comparing carbon dioxide emissions. In my opinion the "diesel hate" in Europe has gotten out of hands. EURO6 regulated diesels do not pollute much and they get very good mileage. I have e61 525d which averages 39mpg, for a similar petrol car the number would be roughly 29mpg.

The day when i changed from petrol to Diesel changed my life. Not only that it spends so much less fuel, but the feeling you have when you have so much torque power, beautiful.
