there's a reason they don't show the sound of the car in that video. the S63 has to be one of the worst sounding V8's I've ever heard.

not really an upgrade either, IMO.

I guess that would depend on what one was looking for. If one is looking at possible FI in the future, I'd beg to differ. Methinks that I'd much rather start with a platform that was designed by BMW to be boosted if I had my druthers. As far as tuning options: http://f10.m5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=675589

I expect that at some point and time, someone will come out with a package for that engine that will be good for 1k hp. Hopefully sooner rather than later *lol*

In the interim, I'll just leave these here...

Your cars is going to be Bad as Hell, It seems like one of these Vendors would make a S65 to S85 Swap Kit.

I think this is an awesome project! However, won't the additional weight of the motor affect the car's overall balance? Sorry if this is a dumb question.

yes it will affect the balance, but it is only 32 kg difference. not too much for a v10

I may be alone on this but I think the S85 is one of the best, if the the best, sounding V10 on the planet!

The loss of AC is speculation at this point. I highly doubt that the car in the middle east with this swap doesn't have AC.

This would be awesome! I would be interested since my motor seems destined to let go eventually (bad oil analyses).

This sounds awesome! I just picked up my M3 couple weeks ago, so i might be happy with the car for couple years.
However, this setup sounds like the ultimate one (i don't mean s/c set up or bore-up set ups are bad, but V10 is just awfully cool in E92 M3 in my perspective). Maybe you can create a thread that will walk through project details for prospective swappers.

You are A.W.E.S.O.M.E!!!
