The E53 wasn't designed to meet then current emissions standards, it was designed to exceed them. Reference the ULEV standards, and BMW advertising from 2000-2001. At the time, there was a lot of resistance to the E53 from BMW traditionalists, with calls of it not being a true BMW, and BMW was making points out of the 'safest SUV' and 'cleanest SUV' memes.
