I am not really willing to accept an simple "pimped" AG-engine in an M3/M3, what an S55 based on the N55 in any kind would be ... there could the N54/335i(tuning)-Fanboys could say what the wonīt - they just donīt understand the Myth M ... itīs much more than hp, performance and sound !!!
Yes agreed right back at you!
It is funny how much BMW M USED TO
promote 80% different parts on the M cars and REDLINE, REDLINE, REDLINE. Now it's highest price and parts bin cars... Oh well I still may buy one
