NA V8 vs I6 twin/tri turbos ??

We can almost sure there will be turbochargers in the next generation M3. But between this two engine, which one do you guys prefer? Personally I love the current NA V8, so I am getting a last year model e92 this year and I wont regret it ! I will place my order in this summer, will become one of the proud ///M owners just like you guys soon

You are asking a biased crowd!!!!


I'll keep my s/c'd M3 thank you very much. Even if she didn't have a snail, I'd keep her.

How can there be a meaningful discussion on this, if the next generation engine hasnt even been released?

These threads are so annoying.

Now you're asking if we prefer the NA V8 or an engine that doesn't even exist yet

The only thing we can say for sure is that the new engine won't sound as good as the S65. Other than that, it'll just be more powerful and more efficient.

I love turbo cars. I have a e92 but I can't wait to see the new one. And imagine the potential.

I wonder if this will turn into a GT2 vs. GT3 type discussion when the new M3 comes out ( verse outgoing one ).

It seems most manufacturers are dropping NA V8 models in favour of turbo'd engines. Just the way it goes I guess. Some stupid thing called fuel economy, I dunno

Turbos are a two edged sword...

Good Side
* More fuel efficient
* Easy to get BIG power
Bad Side
* More heat
* Too hard to not modify due to low cost/power ratio of modifications. Once modified you either have to lie to keep your warrenty (not my bag) or have potentially high $$ warrenty claims fairly denied.

If BMW can keep the heat under control (a hard 1 hour on the track without temp problems) and maybe a Dinan tune with matched warrenty, the new M3 could be a winner, especially if it wieghs less than the current, like the F30 vs. E90 328/335.

Based on my experience with the engine that is not available I really like it. I have had several imaginary track days with it and it is very responsive.

Gblansten.

That was hilarious. Perfect answer.

But it begs the question. Did you use stock or racing pads at the track?

That post made my time here worth it!

Back to the subject. I think the engine discussion about the engine is a moot point. It WILL be better than the S65.

The real question is weight. I think the evolution of the M3 from a homo (abbreviated because I can't spell the entire word) special to a dual purpose family car is one that I can live with. But if the weight keeps climbing then the M3 will suffer the same fate as the M5 in becoming a luxo-barge.

IMO, 3700lbs is right on the brink of what you can call nimble with 2 wheel drive. I think it shows its weight with the brake fade from light track use among other things.

I am hanging on to my N/A V-8 like my balls...Turbo cars are all the rage and for good reason.. it was the it technology in the 70s and now sure to be part of future production cars for a long time to come..N/A gas guzzlers are going the way of the dodo
