Does anyone know when the TDI engines will be available in the States?

I was told my my salesman (bought a Q7 and A4 from him) that he test-drove two in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. They'll be available in calendar year '09.

The issue is that there are new '07 smog-compliance rules, along with 2010 rules that are even more strict. AoA does not think it is worth it to develop an '07-compliant car and re-engineer it for '10. It will be released in early '09 as a 2010 model...

Of course, he could be wrong. With that schedule, it looks like I'll be getting a short-term lease on an A5 until the V6 TDI arrives...

My current lease is up in two years so we should have a diesel option by then.
