Sorry, but the M5 got a real HP and torque bump.
This isn't anything to write home about. Not impressed......
Have you seen the power curve on the N54? They aren't just going to chip it for christsakes...

You all know BMW. This car will be engineered, balanced, tested and likely, superb. They told you it will have similar power to the old one but 100 MORE LB-FT of torque while weighing somewhere (reasonably) between 100-200lb+ LESS. This will be a fast car. As far as handling? Let's just remember that the E46 M3 did the same on the skidpad as the current 328i. I feel like I'm not the only one who is not concerned about holding his breath.
