Might in BMW's best interest to not bring a 2series diesel to not kick themselves in the arse, unless they're willing to take the hit and be more diverse.
This might depend on what BMW has up the sleeve for the next couple years. They have eyes and ears out to see what the competitors are doing. Just look at the Mercedes CLA you think it was an accident that bmw create a vehicle in the same segment. Except the CLA is more of a 4 door with coupe styling.
