It's ok, buddy...
I'd be surprised if this is a twin turbo. I don't think there's enough volumetric flow from two 500cc cylinders to spool each of the two turbos up sufficiently. Remember that the twin turbo arrangement in the 335i uses one small turbo per three cylinders.
If BMW pull the sequential turbo stunt as per the 35d engines then I'll fall off my chair. Single, twin-scroll turbo is what I'd expect.
Martin, then what about 123d that has a TT?
It will be a twin turbo (not a smaller and bigger turbo like the diesel engines) but two of the same turbos, with one per two cylinders
When will this engine arrive in the 1 series.
It's bad enough that some "BMW fans" I know claim that "A 4-cylinder BMW is not real a BMW." <--- Morons. :t-crazy2:
A friend of mine here thinks that way. And he's German too! I mean he should have grown up with 316i's etc. Some people...
Some people just don't get it. What about the BMW E30 M3, or the 2002 turbo for that matter... two of the most impressive and iconic BMWs yet.
The trend towards four-cylinder engines has just begun.
It would be a first for a car in this segment. In fact, I can't think of a single example of a current petrol engined car that uses a sequential turbocharging arrangement. A two-litre engine can easily make 240 PS with a single small turbocharger whilst retaining a good measure of low-rev linearity with a twin-scroll layout.
Got it! Thanks, bro!
Most be good tuning potential. +300hp shouldnt be a problem.
Schaweet! You're welcome.
Of course, what I've said is purely an educated guess. Who knows - maybe BMW wows us with a twin-turbo arrangement (in whichever guise) that would signify a landmark event in mass-market cars.

Well, i have thousand reasons to believe that you're right...
Lol, that's so true, you never know with them. But it's good of course, as long they keep surprising us...pleasantly.
While I agree that BMW did make some wonderful 4 cylinders in the past, that was in the past. Hell their headquarters is a 4 cylinder building. But right now, it's the 6 cylinders that are the best engines in the line up... well the V8 and V10's are cool too. These are the engines that are racking up the awards, not the 4 cyl.
There's no way you can compare the engines from the 2002 and a 316i. Although this engine might prove me wrong.
Just to clarify...
is this supposed to be the production version of the Tii concept? Haven't been keeping up with the new lately.
I happen to own the latest 4-cylinder engine from BMW and the engine is magnficent (120i). Very fuel efficient and strong at low rpm even for N/A and the engine also like to be reeved all the way up to 7000 rpm without hesitation.
Stop living in the past Warot, there is absolutly no wrong with my car.
+1, I certainly hope so (my first post by the way).
i don't know if anyone has anwesered it already - but when can we expect an annoucement - geneva ?
I knew you were going to respond, haha. While I know that the 4 cylinders are in no way bad (apart from the 1.6...), far from it, BMW's forte is the 6 cylinder. I don't think anyone car argue with that. That's what wins them countless Engine of the year awards.
More, please... :eusa_pray
