Correct, there's no future for N/A high output/capacity engines.

S54 would never meet forthcoming Euro 5 emissions.

This month also saw Honda announcing that they are withdrawing the K20 Vtec Civic Type R from European sale by the end of the year, as this engine also won't meet Euro 5.

Current M3 will be last n/a ///M car as BMW simply arn't going to develop a car it can't sell in it's own country.

Let's not get too exited.

The wide body is the way this car should have been done from the beginning. What really matters here is what's under the hood and so far they're just playing us like a bunch of drooling idiots.

It's a tease of a vehicle which is what most were looking for. I don't think they're doing anything out of the ordinary.

I don't track my car, but the main complaint with the 135's brakes has been with the pads--not the rotors or calipers....

I don't know why they would bother to tease something for a couple of hours but it's highly unlikely that we'll see the full car for a few weeks/months.

This does look sick! Going from a 135i to a 335i, this vid makes me want to get back into a 1er

Looks like they are planning to slowly take her clothes off. I'm thinking the sides come off next, then the rear bumper, then they are going to drive off and never show the full car

This is like saying that the fender flares on the M3 is what the 335i should have looked like. The wide body is to accomodate the M3 suspension and wider tires.

I sincerely don't think that they are going to add all these things-M3 suspension, upgraded brakes, wider tires, 19 inch CSL wheels, LSD, etc all just to fool everybody...

I always wonder why the 128/135i guys are soo skeptical or is it that they hope this will fail because if it is a good car, it means that they either wasted money or have a case of sour grapes?

Look at the E46 M3, you're telling me they couldn't take the 3.2L engine and improve upon it? (efficient dynamics, right?). The 1 M is boring. They should have just called it the 135i w/ competition package and charged an extra 5k for it.

I don't think their sales are going to look very good on this one. If anything, more 135's will be sold as a result.
Wow. Ignorant and negative people suck.

So, you're saying the M6 is completely indistinguishable from a 650i? They are not going to take a NA engine anymore and put it in a M car. Get over it. The 1M is boring? Do you not drive a 1-series and have seen the spy photos? It wasn't going to be a radical change. You are getting a M car which has proven to be beat ever competitor including AMG, Audi RS and the like for 25 years. This car needed to be made to improve on the deficiencies of the 135i. I guarantee this will revolutionize this segment. They haven't made an M car like this size since the E36. It's going to fun to see when this thing is tested. Can't wait to see all the negative idiots eat their words like they did about the 1M only being an "is" model.

The Disguised car you see here in the preview was filmed in the BMW Welt. We have off sites in the Welt for private customers and viewing rooms for new products.

I am completely surprised that some US media outlets are referring this as a 135M and still mention iS as a title.

We had a strict private BMW US preview the other week. Before the tragedy of Mr Pitney and before the car was taken to Wisconsin.

Anyway You will love it... Jack did. R.I.P.
