    Chances are they did nothing.

    If they still haven't figured out the HPFP for you guys why would they for this?

    Thats one of my concerns. given the uppity attitude of current M owners, and now with the reduced price for a badge whore, allowing younger and even less mature owners, I would think the customer would be furious if they have to bring their car in for service numerous times, especially for the same thing.. Something has to have changed. If they overlooked this 1 single part, then they are definatly asking for a lawsuit.

    In fact, if anyone, individual or automaker were to bring this to the public light, it would be a horendous PR hassle for BMW

    The HPFP thing is as prominent as any issue BMW has had. Nothing can be done as long as they keep replacing pumps.

    Yes, this is going to allow even more kids in, wonderful. At least they will all hang out on a different site. I think I'm done with BMW M after this, I want them to move further upscale nor further down.

    I'm thinking about it, maybe Porsche or Benz as well. I'm liking all of them a lot more as of late.

    Its amazing that they are placing the N54 in this car. There is a ton of aftermarket stuff for the N54. Imagine a Stage 2 1M...

    I can imagine a Stage 2 1m, it will be like many of the JB3 135's we already have here.

    It isn't amazing they are putting the N54 in this car, the N54 has already been there. It is half-assed BMW M.

    Its would be stupid to make an engine for a car which is going to be replaced in 2 years. The 135i's that we have here cant put the power down like this car not even with the best suspension setup. This car must definitely have better cooling ( bigger fan and radiator and more oil coolers) so you can beat the $#@! out of it all day without compromise.

    No it isn't, they have done it before. That motor can evolve as well. The S50 US had a run of what?

    The 135's can't put their power down like this car, why not? Their aftermarket diffs are better than the M3 diff that will just be carried over.

    It must have better cooling? Right... like how BMW M cars must have brakes that don't fade? Or transmissions that don't overheat on the track?

    +1. They must have done something to keep the thing from limping on the track. Here's to easily installable parts on other N54s!
