7 diesel

Hi, what designation would a 750li be if it were diesel? I know the "i" means fuel injected (i.e., gasoline), so what is the diesel equivalent---just 750L ???

I think at the moment they are all 3000cc but tuned to differing degrees to be given the nomenclature of 730 and 740 but both are the same size.

I don't think they offer the long wheel base For diesel, so It'll be 740d.

Actually 740d is not offered in long wheel base even in Europe. 740d is actually the only version of the current 7-series which is not offered as long wheel base.

So if you want long wheel base, diesel engine in 7-series this are your options:
- 730Ld (not dL as posted earlier) wtih single turbo
- 750Ld with three turbos (xDrive as standard)

730Ld is not available with xDrive, only with short wheel base.
