They really should have gone with the 325 hp engine on the Buick Regal.

It's kind of disappointing to see BMW going away from the N/A engines they are so used to developing. Unfortunately, the regulations and laws regarding emissions has forced manufacturers to go the F/I route in order to maintain power and performance while reducing emissions.

Either way I know this new generation of M5 and future F/I motors from BMW will be as impressive if not more impressive than the current generation. Not to mention tunability and potential power from these motors with modifications will be MASSIVE.

Only thing I'm disappointed by is the fact that it's the engine they use in the SUVs, and the fact that it's only going to have 550hp ... you got damn Cadillac CTS thing that makes that now; BMW needs to step their game up and demolish everything. I'm thinking like a 6 liter twin turbo.

Yeah, that is a valid point. My guess is it's an attempt to keep production costs down and in some ways it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to build an entirely new motor when you already have something that's ridiculous enough as it is.

At the very least, BMW M division should retune the motor, possibly add more aggressive cams, and at the very least update it somewhat for use in the M5. I'm thinking an M5 that does 0-60 in under 4 seconds would be really nice.
