    Re: BMW M news

    How is the 7-speed manual going to be used - if not sequential?

    Re: BMW M news

    Even more interesting is that they are going to squeeze the new V8 into the Z4 already one year ahead of the new M3, ie. in 2006

    btw. the 230hp Mini is the new Works kit. The regular turbo engine of the S is expected to have a similar output than today's supercharged engine. BMW developed these new engines together with PSA

    They also claim that the new V8 would fit into the new baby BMW ("Einser")

    OB

    Re: BMW M news

    wow!!!!But M3 will beat the 997 I think on the straight line?????i doubt of it.
    i guess 0-100 in 4,7sec

    Re: BMW M news

    I don't read German very well - what is the spec of the motor for the new M1? Did they say the compression ratio for the 1.6L Turbo Mini motor is 10.6:1? That seems VERY high for a turbo motor!

    Grant,

    In regards to:

    The article is not specific on this question. All they say is that the M1 would be desirable but it is quite uncertain if it will ever be built. Reason being that an M1 would be too much of a competition to the new M3. They go on in saying that the M-V8 engine that fits in the 3 Series, would also fit in the 1 Series. However, that would undermine the M3's potential success.

    An alternative for the M1 would be to mount the 6-cylinder turbo version that is already producing 350Hp. But this would contradict the current M-philosophy, which is to use naturally aspired engines only. One way out would be to simply NOT label the car "M" but still have it 'go' like an "M"....

    In regards to:

    The article states a compression ration of 10. 5 :1, and YES, this is quite high for a turbo.

    Hope this helps.
