I like the high strung nature of the S65, the rawness makes it fun in my book. I hear you re: Displacement/Torque, coming from 3 prior N63's one DINAN flashed (claimed 573 ft/lbs) the luxury of having torque down low is a great thing - but I feel the S65 does very well with 295ft/lbs especially when coupled with DCT.

Given the choice I wonder if anyone here would swap the S65 with an S62 in their in E9x - personally I would roll with the S65
