: Actually, you are wrong, it will not be available until at least next year as a 2001 model, and BMW has not annnounced when they will unveil it to the press, though there is speculation it will be soon, even sooner than august.
Yeah, whatever. If you really ARE a MT schmuck then maybe you know why MT wasn't invited to the private screening at the Detroit auto show? WHY? Well, in the words of the BMW rep, "MT are a bunch of woosies!"
For those of you still rooted in reality, the word is (and you didn't hear it here) it will be 342 hp, using a modified CAMTEC V6 with the rods bored out to 37 mm and a 280 psi intake manifold shaft.
