yup, in anopther two years. I just hope they dont' run into the same issue with the diesel here that mercedes ran into years ago. Apparently from what i remember from an ex coworker who was guite involved with Mercedes in the 80's, the paraffin content is too high in the US for the engineering at that time from Mercedes. So it ended up gumming things up.

BMW ran into a similiar problem with the fuel and the cylinder walls of the M60 V8. The fuel ate away at the coating causing misfires, so BMW replaced the entire first run of the M60 with the M60/2 prior to the release of the M62.

my carbon footprint is bigger than yours
