BMW Turbo models coming....

I thought this was interesting as BMW has long touted the naturally aspirated mantra for quite a while. These cars, with their ease of upgrading turbos, may be the better buy out there instead of the naturally aspirated M cars.

You know how credible the source is when the "current M3 has a 343 hp V-6" in it.

My thoughts exactly. Someone needs to read up on their vehicles a bit more. I'd be all for a turbo V8 M3.

misprints are common in autorags. This is from Automotive News, an industry weekly newspaper. If you read the paragraph before, they state the M3 having 333HP V8.

I would rather start with a Turbo 3 series making 250ish h.p. than a fully worked 333 h.p. I6 There is so much potential with turbos.
