In NY pre OBDII gas cars can be changed to diesel same way you do the color (so I'm told), just register it at the DMV. To register it anyplace, a title showing the current engine would be needed. To transfer to another state, I'd check first, and see what history is needed.

My 240D was evidently a graymarket euro delivery. VIN lookup says 82, lady I bought it from said New York saw it as an 85 for whatever reason. That's how it worked for my at the DMV
