I LOVE M-POWER!!
I made a comment here once that I loved BMW engines on this site and I got flamed! People (mostly Porsche fans) started talking about how crappy BMW engines are because of things like power/liter stats, etc. Is it just me or do Porsche fans always seem like they have something to prove? Maybe because their engines in the back of their car?
Anyways, I LOVE this engine. The sound of a BMW V8 is a beautiful thing. I realize that\'s entirely subjective, but that is MY opinion! I also realize that BMW\'s stats are almost never as high as a Porsche\'s for the most part. There\'s a reason for that, however, because they\'re in completely different categories.
Look at Mercedes for example, mostly Mercedes is a Luxury car market - with the obvious exceptions like the McLaren. BMW is a sports Saloon/Coupe (with a bit of luxury) Market - very few exceptions the focus is on a car that drives beautifully, but that you can LIVE with EVERYDAY. And Porsche is mostly in the Supercar Market. The 911 Turbo, 911 GT2, 911 GT3, 911 GT3 RS, etc are mostly meant to compete with Ferrari and Lamborghini - NOT BMW or Mercedes or Audi.
I completely respect Porsche as a company and the place they hold in THEIR market - supercar performance. HOWEVER, one cannot simply discount BMW just because they don\'t produce a factory supercar. I\'ve always said a BMW engine tuned to the extent that a Porsche or Ferrari or Lamborghini engine is, is a SCARY thing. and the A10 and
