So now a lot of people are complaining about hp/torque figures as if this was the main goal for BMW. Flash back 30 years ago and BMW produced an engine coded the M10 which was a 1.5 litre turbo-charged 4-cylinder producing 1,500 hp.

So relax and try to understand that it's not just a matter of hp/torque but a whole lot more. It's the whole package, driving feelings, power delivery, etc... which matter the most. Having the appropriate hp/torque figure is much more hard to engineer than throw an engine which could weigh twice as heavier and 10 times more powerful than what could the chassis absorb.
