Question The Hype!

Is it just me or is the thought of a supercharged or turbocharged BMW just like super-sex?

Elaborate

Not even just that... I think it just ads so much to an already classy vehicle. Yeah sure there are fast ass GTIs and such, but a BMW? IDK hearing a spool on a BMW is just sick! Maybe that's just my opinion.

It is definitely sick. The inline six is one of the sweetest sounding engines IMO, especially with a nice exhaust. So add the sssssssssssss-PSHH to that. . . ooooooooooooh. I love it, I'm just not happy about paying for it.

Thumbs up Turbos are great

...but Im glad bmw makes only N/A cars. Turbo slows down the response of a car and eats power before it gets to the wheels. It also shows true automotive perfaction behind every car, not like Merc AMG who only can make a car to keep up with an ///M by blowing it.

And plus, if you have a turbo ///M3, everyone knows whats up.

I agree. Although the e36 M3 engine already sounds AMAZING fromt he factory. I have many e46 M3 friends who wished the s54 sounded as perfect as a s50 or s52.

Yeah, I'm really into N/A as well. It's almost like cheating, you know? I was talking to a friend of mine who has a 180sx and I was telling him that I want 10lb per hp (at the wheels) for my car, and he was like.. oh, well I already have 250 hp for mine.. I was like, you have a 4 cyl? How is that? and then before I could retract my statement, he was like Turbo... (duh) I don't know, to me it's not quite worth it.
