That motor is also based on a regular BMW motor but with modifications. See the trend? The 1M simply has the motor out of a 335is.

    and 'an m motor in an m does not an m make' if you want to phrase it so awkwardly.

    it's a package. the motor doesn't make the car, just as the car doesn't make the motor

    just because the motor isn't extra special, doesn't make the 1m any less 'm'... unless you really think it's ALL botu the motor being extra unique and special.

    2JZs were making 700whp in 1999 (6 years old). N54 isnt too far off.
    yes there are a $#@!load of built N54's... but there aren't a $#@!load of built N54's making big power, sadly

    a lot of them are built for racing on stock turbos and stuff.... like a local shop here that's built probably 10 purely for class racing, and never makes more than 400-450whp.

    I never said the 1M wasn't an M car. I simply said it did not have an M motor.

    A motor doesn't make a chassis special just like a chassis doesn't make a motor special. It all has to come together. And don't start anything by saying I am implying that the N54 isn't special. It is. In fact, it's my favorite motor. But that doesn't make it an M motor.

    I doubt they will, but BMW could potentially make the new M3 amazing. I'm sure a modified N55/N54 would do good duty as an S55. But it needs to rev higher and not taper off up top. It also needs to be more responsive. Unfortunately, I fear that BMW will ruin the car like they have with so many of their recent releases unless they can actually exhibit some restraint for once.

    If they make it good, I will buy it. If they don't, I am done with BMW and will probably buy an AMG instead. /rant
