In Reply to: What's the driving diff between V6 & V8 ? posted by Michael on October 19, 2001 at 13:01:17:

Watch these boards!!
The V-8 drivers love the big throat of the 3.0;
the 3.5's run free of the Nickasil issue.
Take a good look at the site for notes between the two -- peformance almost the same.
I mentioned it yesterday and say the same again today:
V-8 = Lions & Tigers & Bears (GRRRRRRR!!!!)
6cyl = meow, meow (prrrrrr!!)
'95 530i (Nickasil Running STRONG)

I mean V8 engine Vs 535 V6 .
I hav't got the change to drive 535 , I believe it's a good
one . But seems many challenge to the V8 engine even it's new block , so just want to know the disadvantage compare to the V6 engine , less power , driving feeling , broken parts or unreliable design ? any advise appreciated .

94'530 with 4 mons new block
