I'm not down with this idea. BMW has never had to put F/I in it's cars. Now it's no better then Benz's with AMG.

You guys act like adding F/I is a sin! Like BMW makes N/A motors just because it's the "morally right thing to do".

T/C, S/C, N/A <= Three ways to make an engine.

Just think you guys are so funny about your N/A fanaticism

We like forced induction because it takes more skill to make a high revving, high output engine. Anyone can slap a turbo or supercharger on a car, thats the easy way out. BMW and BMW owners pride themselves on the high quality engines that BMW makes.

Also if they are going to make a twin turboed car, at least make it over 400 horsepower, what a waste of two turbos.

BMW1990: You threw me off there, did you mean normally aspirated, you don't sound like an advocate of turbocharged Bimmers?


And actually, BMW made FI cars back in the day(do you not recall the 2002 turbo--great car), this is nothing new. I'm not necessarily against a Turbocharged car from the factory, as all the necessary plumbing and engine design is intended for such. It's when kids slap a turbocharger on cars not built for them, that's when I shake my head. I'm sure the 335 will have the compression ratio, and necessary plumbing to make it a fun and reliable car, but I'm still a bigger fan of normally aspirated cars myself.

I thought the E90 M3 was supposed to feature a V8 engine?

Anyways, Peugeot and BMW are currently working on a turbo, 4-banger

WE? Don't speak for all of us.....I'm an NA fan too but thinking about cost and power ratio when having turbo or NA tuning....Cost effectively Turbo would be less..

And, yeah haha corrected ur mistake .... already so yeah. But .... "ANYONE CAN SLAP A TURBO" or especially saying SC on a car isn't easy thanks...

If you understood how superchargers worked u'd know that its not easy...
Especially with E30s I'd still change the cams and pistons just so it'll handle the new modification better. I just think NA is great, but after tuning up a stroker thinking about how much it outputs excess through the exhaust its like ... I could have MORe power haha

And i like boosting on the same gear and not having to double clutch to smoke a straight away.

I've never been a fan of forced induction, myself - I think it's kinda like cheating. that said, I'm not above using it if I have to. I just prefer to use NA whenever possible.
