But really, the S65 is being killed in it's prime for IMHO non-market reasons. Oil/gas being too high not from a pure demand aspect but a command economy aspect. Outcome based thinking dictated from "on high".

BMW wanting to go along to get along to still make money killed off something special that still had a long and intersting life left. 4.4L, S/C, etc.
What would have M done to enhance the next S65 in the next M3/M4.

Ok, going out now. Just a few beers.

Who is John Galt!
I was frustrated and angry for weeks after my first read of Atlas Shrugged and completely agree with you. It's a shame to see this motor get kicked under the carpet just because of political policies.. especially as they still pump out 7 liter corvettes with 11:1 compression over here.
