They're due out in 2013 and 2014

BMW is due to release a slew of new turbo diesel engines in the United States throughout 2013 and 2014. 

Among those in the diesel lineup is the F30 3 Series sedan diesel, due out in the first half of 2013; the F31 3 Series touring, due out in the second half of 2013; the F10 5 Series diesel, due out in the third quarter of 2013; the X5d diesel, due out at the end of 2013; the 7 Series diesel, due in the first half of 2014, and the X3d diesel, due in the first half of 2014. 

According to F30Post, a 180 HP 4-cylinder engine may be assigned to 20d or 25d models while a 255 HP 6-cylinder engine may be assigned to 28d, 30d or 35d models. However, no official announcements have been made in that regard. 

The U.S. had some other exciting diesel-related announcements this year as well, such as Porsche's first diesel model for the U.S. (the 2013 Cayenne Diesel), and Mazda said it was bringing a diesel engine to the U.S. by 2014

Something that's not so great: breathing the foul-smelling, carcinogenic and asthma-inducing diesel exhaust. Yeah, I've heard all about the "clean" diesels, but even they don't clean their exhaust with 100% efficiency. Maybe driving a diesel isn't so bad, but being stuck in traffic behind a diesel (with its exhaust pipe right in front of your car's cabin air intakes) isn't quite so pleasant, at all. And in high-density/high-traffic places where you might find yourself routinely stuck for large fractions of an hour in heavy traffic congestion on a 5-lane freeway (such as frequently happens in California, for instance), just the mere thought of thousands of these "clean" diesel cars idling bumper-to-bumper, combining their emissions together into a nice little cloud over the road, makes my skin crawl. I'd pity anyone whose home would be within a mile of any major road, if diesel cars became the norm in such high-traffic, high-density locales.

CARB and the EPA would rather you crawl in that same jam in an EV beeping away at an annoying volume to warn other pedestrians such as children and cyclists that your coming. (Like there's tons of those on a 5-lane interstate) How insanity inducing would that racket be?

I have no clue what you're talking about... I have my car tested every year and although it's Euro 3 it can easily fit the Euro 4 emissions norm. Hell I can make it Euro 5 if I add a filter (that's a bit too expensive to be worth it). Here's some reading:

I have no idea what crap diesels you drive back there, but the exhausts of diesels in Europe cannot be "in front of any car's intake" because they're pointed downwards... that's how you can tell a diesel from a petrol car at a distance. Here:

My Peugeot 206 HDi's original exhaust was as you showed, however when the back box rotted away, I had it replaced and the exhaust was lozenge shaped (Walker - I wanted Bosal but none were available). Conversely, my other half's 206 1.1 petrol has a downward-pointing exhaust.
