BMW: Bring the MINI Cooper D (diesel) to the United States!

1,930 Signatures Goal: 5,000

The MINI Cooper is a great, fun, fuel efficient car. The 2008 MINI Cooper D model is a 1.6L 110HP turbodiesel model that gets upwards of 64.2 mpg (US 53.5 mpg) on the highway -- and can run biodiesel. (although I\'m sure BMW voids the warranty -- wouldn\'t want us to use domestic fuel!) The 2008 models are now available in Europe, but of course BMW refuses to bring them to the States! Americans want better fuel economy now that our gas prices are over $3/gallon. Sales of SUVs are plummeting as the oil companies get greedier, and people are seeking more economical cars. (electric cars aren\'t really an option yet) The MINI Cooper is a sexy car that sells very well, and the option of getting over 50 mpg combined fuel economy in the USA with a diesel is very appealing to most environmentally and fiscally minded Americans. Furthermore, a diesel particulate filter in the 2008 model reduces almost all diesel exhaust emissions and helps to make the MINI diesel engine one of the most environmentally friendly in its class. Throw in biodiesel, which is produced in America, and you\'ve got yourself a dream car. Let\'s all band together and let BMW know how much we want the MINI Cooper D!
