Again, not everyone thinks the S65 was the epitome of M engine manufacturing.

No one is disagreeing that the S55 is partly a result of saving cost. As for the engine being "cheaper", that's been debated in another thread and when you throw in all the ancillary costs associated with it, it's probably close in cost to a S65.

The fact that you feel it's your "need" to make sure everyone understands that the S55 is result of compromise, is again, showing insecurity on your part.
