Throughout the world, this car is more of a diesel car. In almost all regions, there are more diesel offerings than petrol models. I think the NA market will only see the 28i and the maybe the 23d as well. I'm guessing BMW may be waiting on the 23d motors until they update it a bit (I know it's not old), then federalize it for use it in the X1, 1er (F20), and 3er (F30). I don't think they have enough incentive to go through the costs of federalizing an engine just for one (niche) model, especially given diesel sales.
