Agreed, however the reason is the stupid "emission's ratings" tests are getting harder to pass, the reason they benced the 5.0L V10 was because it failed recent emission tests apparently.'

Sure, I wouldn't mind going back to NA, but turbos are very efficent and are more economical then NAs, so BMW has started to use them. Blame the environmentalists
