E70: 5.0 v8 question...

Question...



Since I have a 4.8 on order...this is a KEY issue for me:



Regarding the 5.0 Liter V8 currently available in the X6, would it be a replacement for 4.8, or would it me for a new "M" edition?



If it was a replacement, would we see a price bump?



If it was an M or there was an expected price increase, i'd be happy sticking with the 4.8 order. If it was jsut an engine swap that would be a different story all together.

Garage List
2008 E92 M3  [0.00]
From the BMW website:

"4.4-liter, 32-valve turbocharged 400-hp V-8 engine with twin-turbo technology, piezo direct fuel injection, 4 overhead camshafts, and Double-VANOS steplessly variable valve timing"


The new BMW engine and model nomeclature is a bit misleading.

Yea it'll definitely go into the X5, most likely when the X5 gets its facelift... maybe a year.

It'll replace the 4.8 but will probably have a little price increase, nothing too dramatic though

Hold out for the BRZ STI or... Rocket Bunny FRS. Update: Scratch that. I've got a 2015 5.0/6MT with my name on it.
