Good to hear. Thanks. I am ok with moderate performance. My RR has the V8 and frankly I rarely ever use the power. The solid fuel economy and purr of the diesel would be nice for all the traffic we sit in around Seattle. She just received a promotion that entails more of a commute so this would ease that frustration a bit. If the reliability is good I would prefer to find a 2016 and buy slightly used vs leasing the 2019 new model when it comes out this fall. I am sure many BMW enthusiasts will bring quite a bit of demand for the new model.
