I'm sure it will be the best engine ever that I can say I owned. I understand the direction BMW has taken but I don't agree with it. If only we had the lighter F8x with the 22 lb heavier S65 or a similar high reving V8. The net of 150 lbs less weight and an advanced chassis would be nice but everyone had to have their torque and BMW decided to go half assed green.

22 lbs weight savings, 5 mpg improvement, slightly better smog, and higher torque aren't good enough to me when comparing S55 to S65.
