Ok, still no news on the displacement or Kw/HP output.
BUT...

Sounds like we have the competition running scared. Audi RS4 confirmed a V8 4.2 310Kw / 416HP engine which is aimed TOTALLY at squashing the M. MSport, I hope yr taking notes and are now well advanced of these figures.

Ditto. I am not at all thrilled at the prospect of being "squashed" by an Audi.

BMW M: Do what you have to do - I expect the M3 to be able to show its taillights to the RS4! I'm thinking 440 is a nice number, but maybe 425 is more likely, and in line with the progression of the 3. E36 M3: 240hp(US), E46 M3: 333, E90 M3: 426??

I know 0-60 is not the best indicator of performance but the SR4 does it in 4.8 which is what the current M3 does it in so I don't think we need be too concerned with the RS4

425-6 sounds like a good number..w/ a 25% increase in power I would expect the new M3 to be in the 60-65k range. Lots of clink and a 'bargain' relative to money/per hp vs. say the Carrera S. I think 425 is too much. Perennially they come in less than the competition packaging the car with just a smidgen less hp wanting you to go up to the M5 if you want more ponies. I expect that 400hp even will be the number and it will be detuned a good bit. then with headers, catback and ecu right around 440 or so. :nixweiss: I"m guessing that the V8 displacement will be in line with what the evolution of the F1 rule book is at the time. The V10 is a derivative of last years powerplant. I expect a small bore and a relatively hi revving 8...BMW seems to make their power up in the rev range..total speculation. My guess is something like 3.8L or 4.0L. Will keep the tuners from having too much play with mods to rival the M5 unless you supercharge.

When has too much power ever been enough. Personally, my wishlist consists of a
4.4L
444HP
SMGIII and
ALL ISSUES WITHIN THE E46 FIXED / Finalised / DONE. No engine, chassis, brake, interior, exterior issues with the E90M at all.

444HP with a stock M
480HP with a CSL Version, this still gives a 25HP gap between the M5 & M6 Versions.

PEOPLE, PLEASE stop looking at what other car companies are doing, what they are, what they are not doing.... AUDI, MB, Porsche, Vette, etc. These cars are all built on the basic principals of the M and have gotten better only because they have used the M as a benchmark. The E90M will be something special and will SHOCK AND ORE us all.
Adam.
