I heard that R. Kelly has ordered one of these 2010 diesels with the urea tanks because he really likes the idea of filling the tank yourself.
With all of these urine jokes, you know it'll only be a matter of time before someone pees in their urea tank thinking it's the same thing and ends up having to take their car in to the dealer with a most peculiar problem.

Because urine and AdBlue aren't the same thing?

One would have thought they'd have learned by now. But apparently the bean counters still rule in Stuttgart.

I saw that thread too.

At 6-7K miles the engine goes into limp mode because the injector nozzles have melted.

There's a backlog on proper replacements and they won't even let you exchange the car for the same model.

If you want to upgrade you can but I believe you have to pay the difference.

One guy mentioned that they had him in a gasser loaner car until they could fix his diesel.
