urea injection gets rid of almost all of it. Zero smell from my Bluetec.... ever. Also after 4 years the edges of the chrome pipes are still bright and shiny like new!

I'm curious to as why they didn't use the one eco Diesel engine for all markets. You would think they would like impress our circus of a government and exceed minimum regulations? Maybe we will get it later in a MY update after you guys have Ironed it out to perfection. It wouldn't of went down well if the diesel was delayed when the my 14 started in petrol .. Fussy buggers down under when it comes to our diesel cars lol

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just got back from Cancun... spent 8 days soaking up the sun, getting rained on, and drinking a LOT of tequila to try and drown my woes about the missing diesel unicorn/Ectodiesel. I will try and get caught up and find out what the heck I missed but from what I see so far... no diesel yet.

*sigh*

Gotta go get the dog from the kennel... back later.

Frankly... Cost. It adds dollars to the price. You guys will go urea.... I just don't know if it is 2016? It is called euro stage 5 or something similar??? I looked at the global ad blue distribution stuff a while back and I know it is coming for you guys just not exactly when at the moment (away from WHQ at the moment)

Re: 2014 diesel production

You guys crack me up... No running naked through the streets and we were at a family resort so couldn't get naked in the pools or on the beach either. Naked time was reserved for the room... And we did have two rooms so the kids were not too much of a hindrance....

Wasn't sniffing diesel but the house tequila wasn't far from it. I figured out pretty quick to ask for the good stuff and all was well after that. Centenario tequila is simply awesome so if you like tequila then try some... If you don't like tequila then try some as well. Wonderfully smooth and flavorful.

Food was fair to middling... The kids made me stop at Wendy's before we even made it home from the airport though as they wanted something familiar (yuck).

I see a 26th of August production date which is good news, I see no ordering yet which is bad news. Do we have any news on ordering for September or is that still unknown?

Once I get caught up a little more I might have a poem... Though I see we have a strong pinch hitter on the team!

Congrats friend, glad the cops didn't taser your naked @55.

Some of us were a little worried after your spelling game incident.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Theoretically, 8/6 would be the order day if the late August production start holds...

And we had to resort to drastic measures around here... You leave a huge hole to fill in the diesel thread...

Wilx, I guessed it would be here at some point


Interestingly though I thought the engine I have is already euro 5 emissions standard. Is this not the case? :0

Re: 2014 diesel production

I will have a test ride in the diesel next Weekend.. maybe you should come over to Germany to get one, if you are really desperate?!

Happy weekend
