There has been a mule spotted with the all three buttons functional. The middle button was for EDC.

I'm starting to think the hood buldge is there for a reason, guys. Could it possibly be a supercharger? Maybe it's an extra cylinder, a V9.

Ya that's what the power button is for ... to turn on a supercharger with an on/off switch. Sweet!

Wow that sounds great, I sure hope it gets EDC. There has been quite a bit of debate on this with most saying "no" as it encroaches too much on M5. Do you have any pics of this? Post 'em if you got 'em. Thanks.

Here you go. There is a better picture out there somewhere in which I've seen EDC written. You can see the lights on the EDC button as is the case on the M5.

Wow your eyes are way better than mine. I can't see sqaut, other than the fact that there probably are letters on the button. BTW, yes, I have seen this one, posted here on this board. I'd still love to see the one with a light or the letters clearly visible! Thanks.

To me the most interesting part of the Winding Road's story is the claim that we'll get to see the engine on March 22. Why would BMW reveal this so early? Where did they get this info?

Sure I'd like to see under the hood, but also suspect it would look just like the E60 M5. "Seeing under the hood" and release official engine specs is a world apart. I suspect we'll get only the former.

Power could just be the same as Sport in this case ala E46...but more important right now is actually that you can turn DSC OFF not like the M5 were you can't in the manual...
