How so? Because you came up with the idea, now it sounds like fact?
And yet another expert gives his 2 cents...
It goes against M philosophy in so many different ways. This issue has been hammered to death on this forum.
1) BMW doesn't touch their precious M engines until the 7 year recycle
2) The redline won't be high enough
3) As of now (lots of talk about M turning to DI), M cars are only high revving, low displacement naturally aspirated engines
*Not to mention that BMW will never, never share an engine between it's consumer line and M line, never.
Those are the main points I can think of. Lots of technicians on the forum can go into major detail explaining why a consumer DI engine simply can't meet M standards.
