    The S85 and the sound it makes, is the reason I think the E60 M5 is and will be legendary. No BMW will ever sound as good.

    That motor and the S65 deserved better than to just be dropped with no further notice. The S65 at least deserves a home in a Z4 M. The S85 in stroked form should have seen further development. That one-off M5 CSL should have seen production or an M6 based on it.

    I agree with you sticky. The costs would have been prohibitively expensive, but some real limited editions (let's say 100 each of model) from BMW AG would have been an S85 engine stuffed in to an E90, E92 and E93 M3s from the factory. And then stuff the S65 V8 in the E89 Z4 and just call it M Roadster. That is the car that I still think is coming to light. Nice to dream. Or just build it myself. Click here to enlarge

    guys how about an s85 mid engine r8 fighter!!! And god forbid they did it in stroker trim so that it would be in the area of 630bhp and with my current tune i can spin my motor to 8600 rpms!!! So with a factory setup and the right cams you can probably spin it to 9000rpm redline. The sound of that car would bring tears to the eyes of enthusiast and maybe even approach the legendary carrera gt

    I think these motors are going to be awesome for swaps for years to come. My feeling is that the replacement DI turbo motors won't really do anything better except fuel economy and emissions, and they'll be harder to mod.

    That was done by the head office in Europe, but it used our base maps.
