It's not for CAFE. They could easily meet CAFE with a lower displacement turbo inline six. It's to save R&D $$$ and because there's no competitive pressure. Merc doesn't have a offering below the E350 and Audi's base A6 is also a turbo four.

Present - '06 E90 330i sport; Past - '04 E46 ZHP, '00 E46 328i
