    Get a manual if you planning on making big power Click here to enlarge. Hopefully they make one...
    True, it seems like the only car BMW is try keeping the MT in is the M3/M4. They're clearly trying to phase it out in the M5 & M6 since the DCT is the default option.

    BMW's never were and never will be the best choice for big HP aftermarket performance. They just happen to be pretty good at everything all around.
    Heffer said in an interview that the problem with the M cars of the past that the platform weren't BIG HP/aftermarket friendly without heavy modifications, which is true. But now that the M motors are turbod from the factory (which is very "un-M"), there's def going to be a lot more aftermarket appeal (and potential). BUT like LM said, it's all depends whether or not the M Division over engineers the car or give it the "that'll do" treatment.

    To be honest, the M cars WERE aftermarket friendly. The Swedes were putting out 1000+ hp BMW's almost regularly. And the old M motors lent themselves better to big power IMO but obviously required more building and modification.

    But you get an S38 right... and you have this. What new M car is going to touch this?

    But that's the problem, it's been the older M motors (S54 & earier) that delivered a better aftermarket platform. Especially when you compare it to some of the other cars that Heffner works on: Audi R8, Lamborghini Gallardo, Ford GT, McLaren MP4 (in R&D stage right now on their site) and the various Vipers. You can obviously add various Corvettes & the new LSA/LS9 motors to that list also.
