    Why the tiny exhaust?

    1. Big exhausts signals big emissions.

    2. There are very few production vehicles that need more than that.

    This is the version I would get, preferably in X6 guise.

    Can't they just make it a little bit bigger for the sake of overall appearance,think faux exhaust.:D

    Actually it is Sparkling Bronze.
    This is also an exterior colour option on the forthcoming new X3.

    The same car was shown in Geneva which was it's then... World Premiere.
    In Leipzig it is having it's Deutschland Premiere.

    But a 740i for example did get the big exhausts even though it's an I6 engine..

    Yes, but that isn't a diesel vehicle.

    I belive Klier meant the 740d.;)

    Well, both for that matter. 740i and 740d have a big exhaust and 'small' engine....

    Must be a 7er thing....:eusa_thin

    Then I don't know the reasoning behind. I thaugt my view was plausible.

    It could be, but the 7er maybe needs the status with big exhaust, X5 not so much...

    This is the 3L right. Scott why dont BMW use this turbo tech in petrol engines?
  15. klier

    klier Member

    Why would you want this turbo tech in the petrol engines? The petrol single turbo N55 engine has Valvetronic and is as state of the art as a turbo petrol engine can get....

    Siko: it's European only sadly.
    I don't know why, since I read in the automotive sales section that the diesel X5 is doing great in the U.S

    I never said I wanted it in petrol engines. I'm just curious as it's meant to almost completely eliminate lag and it works very well. Wether or not it's better than the current system, I dont know. :t-hands:

    Good looking car...

    In order to get the bigger exhaust tips (same as on the 50i model), one would have to order the M-package...

    At least that's what it said in the brochure of the LCI M-package...

    With the 40d's excellent performance I have to agree it needs more beefy pipes i.e. 4.8i pipes to distinguish it from the lesser diesels :t-cheers:
