Yes, I caught that, too. Gave me flashbacks to my e60 M5. Magical, when it wasn't chiming...

I've owned both a 1M and an E92 M3 and the perfect car would have been the S65 in the 1M. That aluminum V8 weighed a tiny bit less than the iron-blocked N54 + plumbing and would have sat closer to the firewall. I'll never get over the induction noise on an S65x

The N54 block is not made from iron. It's an alloy block. Actually I don't think any modern BMW block is made from cast iron.

Look at the "waffles"... that's not cast iron.
