I think BMW should do what's right for the car and not worry about the critics. Just make the thing fly and embarrass the competition and it will be a hit. I have no doubt that it will be fantastic.
In fact, the latest rumor in the Audi world has it that the supercharger will be replaced by a turbocharger in the next generation of that engine.
