Perfect. That is what I would do as well even though I would know there may be issues. I would gamble that they are small enough I could live with them.

Have you seen it in person? It's gorgeous in pretty much every angle. Really stunning. But the production version remains to be seen.

I wonder if this platform will have the new B58 3.0L inline 6 turbo from BMW in it?


This engine is smooth as butter and capable of great numbers.
Its currently in the m240i which makes 335hp and 369ftlbs torque.

And a simple tune upping the boost can get over 400hp 415ftbls torque.

Seems pretty likely.

I think that might be a bit low... however the purchase price is not what concerns me. With this particular joint venture I am far more concerned what the service and parts cost for this car will be along with the reliability.

As the ex-owner of some expensive German cars that shall remain nameless, it was never the purchase price that hurt in the long run... and I tend to keep cars that I like a long time.
