Yet there are 116d, 118d & 120d... Why BMW are still pushing diesel engines I really dont know!

I'm even wondering if they will leave the line up as is, and hope those wanting warmer engines will get into the new 2GC!!
I think previously diesel engines are really popular in Europe. With the entry level 1 series, they are focused in the mass market? I'm not really sure but it seems quite a long delay in releasing different petrol engines for a car maker like bmw.

How is the engine mounted for the 118i? If it is transverse mounted that might explain the delay in releasing more petrol engines as the new F40 has a FWD drive train. My guess, I could be wrong.
