    The sound in that video above does not sound authentic.

    3:08...is that a BOV or BPV that I hear making a screeching noise?

    the exhaust note sounds boring, but the engine note sounds like a great i-6. Im sure the exhaust note will have a "fruitier" sound when downpipes eliminating the main cats become available Click here to enlarge

    the current n55 is rated at 33mpg on the highway on the F30, i dont expect this s55 to stray too far from that. if this thing makes 450 underrated hp and gets 27-28 mpg on the highway, thats forward progress no matter how u slice it

    Great post and I am in agreement if the S55 in-fact delivers similarly.

    WOW I never thought that the M3/M4 would sound so good on paper! Ditch the E90 M3 Sedan issues due to rod bearing issues and jump straight to M3?
