BWW Diesel Engine Claims?
The Diesel Engine scandal has set the net wider to other manufacturers. According to an article in the Daily Mail, BMW Diesel Compensation Claim may also be considered against the luxury car giant. Please note that there are no admissions from BMW about using any software that would under-state the test results about diesel pollution emissions nor is there any evidence against BMW or the other manufactures that they have done anything wrong. However the test which the National Paper alludes to was from a Government-Funded test that showed diesel engines where emitting toxic fumes at up to 7 times the legal limit.
