Bit misleading as it's not 'all' diesels.

Gel, what you have reported here is going to get Major, Munich is just the peak of the Iceberg last week there was a report and the Alarm Bells are beginning to ring. You can see that even the Diesel Euro 6 vehicles have a problem. The worst City was Stuttgart and then Munich, which has 295,314 Diesels registered, half with Euro 6. Stuttgart is also planned for 2018 where there are 107,000 Diesels with 73,000 Euro 6 registered. Düsseldorf and Hamburg are also discussing similiar bans all Diesel related.
Do not forget that many Cities do tend to lay in let's say Valleys and hence the pollution does tend to hang around.

Not only are VW being really heavy critised at present due to their software modification for €60 which appears to not work but also Porsche and now Bosch are deeply involved due to them supplying the software for Diesels but not only to the VW Group. Many Owners are now taking out private court orders for VW to take back their cars here and at the Car Markets Owners are trying to off load Diesels which in effect is a major financial loss to them - Dave ;)

Interesting to note that some of the qq diesels are cleaner regarding NOx than some of the petrol variants. It also seems to depend on your trim level as to the output of NOx in vehicles using the exact same engine.

Instead of starting a New Post I thought I would post here. I am not sure if this is of interest to you as it is primarily for Germany at present but what happens here normally creates a follow on effect. So read it, Digest it and lets see what happens - Dave ;)

A sign of things to come: Hamburg puts up signposts in the city to enforce the first ban on older diesel vehicles
• Diesel cars will be banned from two major streets in Hamburg by the end of May
• Authorities have put up around 100 road signs to impose the restrictions
• The signs provide alternative routes for those driving outlawed diesels
• It is still undecided if the ban will affect all but current Euro 6 diesel vehicles or pre-Euro 5 models build before 2009

What will it take to clear the air in Berlin?
There are more measures cities can take if a diesel ban can't get pushed through. Similar to the environment zone, cities could introduce what's being termed a "blue badge" admitting only cars that meet national emissions standards. Berlin and some other cities have already implemented something similar for particulate matter, which has improved air quality. Since driving slower translates into more efficient use of fuel, cities can also introduce a speed limit on heavily trafficked streets. Berlin plans to implement a 30 kilometer-per-hour limit on five major roads later this month. If successful, more streets will follow, according to the Berlin Senate.

The German Association for the Environment (DUH) and other environmental associations have created a definition of the beneficiaries of a Blue Badge. These are only diesel vehicles that meet the EURO 6 standard (but not all diesel vehicles with EURO 6 standard meet the required nitrogen dioxide values!) as well as petrol vehicles with EURO 3-6 standards.
