    A brief history and collection of BMW window stickers

    This is from our friends at BMWblog who put together a small collection of BMW window stickers over the years. What some of you will no doubt find interesting is the fuel efficiency for the motor M motors vs. the old motors. It isn't hard to see why BMW caved in especially when you look at the M6 window sticker. The rise in cost is another interesting aspect. The stickers show a nice trip through BMW history.

    Well, your motor is much larger and revs much higher. It also puts out a ton more power at all RPM, that takes fuel.

    This is why the awesome NA era has ended Click here to enlarge
