Are all BMW's SULEV?

Asked by Apr 07, 2017 at 11:23 PM about the 2014 BMW 3 Series

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I've received two answers from sales people.
Some say all the BMW 328's are SULEV and another says some are.
A few SULEV's I've seen have problems when looking at their service records.
My feeling is to stay away from them. Your opinion?

In the newer 3 series, the engines are just certified as SULEV to be sold in certain states, like CA, that have emission requirements. Actually the SULEV vehicles have better warranties for the fuel tank's evaporative control system, and other emissions related parts. There is no performance difference, and I wouldn't worry about buying one vs a non SULEV. Most dealers will just order their vehicles with the SULEV option.
