Meeting on the topic of retrofitting

The german transport minister and car manufacturer met yesterday to find a final compromise for the hardware retrofiting. Drivers of some older diesel cars (from Volkswagen and Mercedes) will get up to 3,000 euros for a catalyst upgrade from the companies if they live in or near the 15 most polluted cities. However, BMW rejects this solution and will rather offer a 3000 Euro discount on new purchases.
