    Is BMW trying to alienate it's enthusiast following as much as possible? This doesn't make any sense at all.

    Isn't ironic that people have been screaming for an Audi R8 / Mercedes-AMG GT...

    I have friends within BMW Group that have expressed that there is a very strong push to cut costs in the production process.

    A good example of this is the current F20/F30 cars where they...

    Thanks for posting this, Sticky! Do you know if this is a early engine or a late engine (after bearing recall)?

    Interesting conversation here about the N20 engine. Like many people here I don't agree that its fair to say that the engine is 'flawed' when the engine fails when it is pushed beyond it's intended...

    Pretty awesome stuff! So if you're using an M52B25 bottom end in Poland, I assume this is the alloy block? Always wanted to see how the alloy blocks go with boost as all USA builds are on iron...

    You are most welcome.

    Always wanted to do a really hardcore NA M42 build - its just a shame there is not much support for this engine as all the attention says on the 6 cylinder engines.

    What...

    Hi there,

    Welcome to the forum. You may have already got your information by now but the casting of the cylinder heads between the single VANOS and non-VANOS heads are actually the same - you can...

    I wouldn't be surprised at all of the 328i had larger standard brakes than the 320i which would definitely be part of that weight difference.

    You're right that VANOS doesn't work like VTEC, it simply changes the timing of the intake cam.

    However, you are incorrect about what the VANOS in an E36 325i does – you are referring to how the...

    Very impressive motor. I think the perceived slowness is more due to the fact cars are so refined now and that there is a fair amount of weight to be pulled around. Gearing makes a big difference...

    Sticky,

    I am interested to see how you would define it. I never really saw the Euro E36 M3 motors and S54 as the same family, even though it is defined this way in Wikipedia - but how credible is...

    You can search other makes and models here too but it just happens so that Mahle supplied many of the pistons for BMW engines from the 80s to early 2000s.

    Did I post this in the wrong section?

    I do understand where people are coming from when they say that the US E36 M3 motors should not have the S designation but the fact is that the official BMW designation is S50B30USA and S52. There...
