Cant wait for the 2011 150 with a V10!
I guess you have been horrendously irritated with the numerous 316, 318, 325, and 328 models BMW has sold over the years
I just want to remind you that the 335i has a 3.0L bi-turbo, not a 3.5
Displacement inflation is here to stay. I am also bent against the trend, but, aside from the public's hunger for raw power, cars are also getting bigger and heavier, so we need bigger engines.
