Iron Block? (archive)

Perhaps someone can correct me but I thought BMW went to an alloy block with the M52 and M54 motors. Does the 330 have a iron block as well? I cannot think of another modern sportscar that has an iron block, makes me wonder if BMW uses a special type of iron or has other reasons for remaining with this old heavy technology (ie cost).
