RWD diesel powered cars

No trucks or SUVs, just cars. Diesel "stuff" is expected to grow by some 500% in a few years.
There's the Benz CDI and that's the only car I can think of that runs on diesel and is RWD. Than there is this http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/frame...hp&carnum=2516
Anybody know if it's RWD?
I know I heard of a BMW coming soon that runs on diesel that I know is RWD of course. Anybody know what it is?

Is there any other RWD diesel cars out there?

I cant find any on autotrader.com that run on diesel. Year 2000-2005.
I haven't kept up with what BMW does/did but I would definitely pick one over a Audi or Benz.

man, BMW Diesels don't come to America. You don't get the gorgeous 535d, with a 272 BHP 3 litre engine. Stand up and ask for it. Blame your compatriots who maintain the image that is diesel is slow and dirty.....

Yes, sure. Now who wants to buy my HDI, because I need something really interesting to drive?

I might agree, if there had ever been a Vauxhall VX220 that had a diesel engine.
