M140i and M240i both very mainstream here.

I think the M550d is the main exception due to engineering difficulties.

Given they sold the F15 50i here, and a major swing towards petrol, I'd be surprised if the M50i doesn't appear at some point. Plenty of V8 RRS examples are on the road, there is a market for V8 petrols at this price level where fuel economy becomes less sensitive.
I didn't realize both were sold there, it must be great having those options! I'd get the M50d if one was offered here, but the US isn't very German Diesel friendly..
