    I was thinking that at first, but it even says it has small turbos on it and the turbos themselves only make 47 more hp then the N/A version of the motor, but 34% more torque, which is always nice.


    It was the same with the 2.7TT S4, it doesn't have a huge amount of power, but a ncie amount of torque. A chip upgrade on an S4 increases hp to over 300. I think it's going to be similar with the BMW, a few simple upgrades and you'll think a little differently.

    It's got decent power, but more importantly it's a damn sexy RWD coupe. :mrgreen:

    Considering that right now the diesels put down to the ground more hp than that... its weak. And nissans suck. :ph34r:

    Totally agree. Look at all the other turbo cars, Evos, Skylines, Supras, etc.. Simple bolt-ons and/or ecu mods and significant horsepower is seen. Besides, like the others mentioned, "its an eco" version. Turbo diesels are pretty big in Euro because they pay like 2.50 per litre or more and 3.85 litres equal one gallon. Thats a lot more than what we pay.

    more power = less mpg. going from old model to new you should up the power some. if they up it to much they would reduce the mpg and push the car closer to the Ms power... whats the point?

    most people that buy 3 series buy them becuase they want a nice daily driver. Most are OVER 25 years old and could care less about their 3 series being super powerful they want a nice balanced car. If they wanted even more power they'd just buy a M.
