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.

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.

That is the engine in ther X6 right? Not the X5...wondering if it will be going into the X5.

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
