There was a company that was developing a supercharger, but I guess they lost interest. Which makes sense, because it's much cheaper to sell the 325i-328i and buy a 335i that is turbocharged by a...

Hey, I could be wrong. I admitted it hadn't driven one.

But let's look at the facts.

1) It costs 136,000 FREAKING dollars (So it should at least drive well).
