How do you know the engine will be longer/heavier?? Pretty sure before the S54 came out, no one would expect a road car to have a V8 engine that was lighter than the I-6. We're talking about BMW here, they're going to do everything they can to make sure they achieve a 50:50 balance.

Who knows? It's not like there's a ZF transmission blog where people are hyped up to see what new trans they release & the specs on it. The current trans is phenomenal, its not the GTR gear box but I'd say its easily on par w/ the Porsche/Audi PDK system. I just don't see BMW recycling a gearbox (even if it's revamped & "upgraded" after the time it spends in the M5/M6) for a 3rd encore.
