more power and more torque, sounds better, is simpler to work on and has a won touring car championships around the world I would have to say that Geofffffff is correct.

535i with M30 boat anchor with 240hp and a torque curve like Ayres Rock.

Ps 144kw out of 2.5 litres or 155kw out of 3.4 litres now which one sounds understressed hmmmm

The M50 is a far better engine than the M30 used in the 535i in everything but engine capacity. The M50 and M50 TU are bullet proof engines with great performance and in theri basic form very understressed.
