Looking forward to the first road tests and drive reports. Especially interested in commentary on how the B58 compares with the N55 in terms of drive feel and overall performance.

Always go for Top Tier gasoline. I don't have the link but you can Google it. Gas is pretty much gas (there are only so many refineries and they sell to everyone) and varies mainly by octane number....

I just hope that we FINALLY get some details on the new B58 engine (and B48 - though doubtful).

Well, drive your Bimmer like you know how. I HATE to see BMWs driven by people who dog the fast lane, NEVER signal turns or lane changes, and cut people off as if they didn't exist. Idiots like...

I doubt that we will much (any?) changes from '15 to '16 4GCs. LCI will probably be held for the 17's. But since the F30 will get its LCI and at least a new six (B58) for the 16's, we should have...

So they are going to dump it after a year and replace it with the B48. Going to be interesting to see how that motor unveils itself. Big shoes to fill from the N20.

Yep, cutting out one Big Mac per week would pay the difference in cost of regular vs. premium fuel and also keep all those Bimmers suffering with cheap gas much happier.

Wonder how many people come to BMW showrooms to look at the 3GT and drive out in a 4GC? Some differences to be sure, but quite similar in many ways.
