: I heard from a good source that there will be changes to the 4.4L V8 engines: They will also be getting double vanos variable valve timing - HP stays "the same" but torque is supposedly going to about 324 ft-lbs. Fuel economy is supposed to be improved as well, and the car will be ULEV (Ultra low emissions vehicle).

I don't think that we're getting an engine like that for '99, at least my car is not supposed to have it. It would be great, however. Imagine a 540i 5 spd without a gas guzzler tax. Nice.
