Wouldn't the 350i designate a 5.0 liter engine? I think this is pure fantasy.. somebody's wishful thinking. It's almost as if that report merged what we've been saying in these forums for the past year...geomax said:Finally! Now the 350 I would go for! :thumbup:
Anyone care to speculate on the power output would be on a BMW 3.5 engine? So BMW will catch up to it rivals (in terms of power), but it'll take 2 years. Where will the rivals be in 2 years?
Like the part about the retractable hardtop on the convertible.:thumbup:JSJAMALA said:I just ran across this on the Autospies website.
You're right designation wise, but a 3.5 liter makes the most sense. The G35 is a 3.5 isn't it??LarryN said:

Hopefully they will keep the weight down:PhilH said:Nothing wrong with any of the rumors in that report, except for that they didn't mention that they're going to try and keep the weight down with all these new features.
If the E46 has a 7 year model run like the E36 did, the replacement will be introduced in late 2005 as a 2006 model.mbr129 said:I had read (granted a while ago) from reputable sources, such as C&D, that the current 3-series would stick around until at least 2006 or 2007.
Many German tuneres have fit a 5.0L V8 (S62) into E46s :bigpimp:SchwartzBlack said:There's no way they'd be able to fit a 5.0L in an inline 6 that would fit in the engine compartment. So I'd say its a 3.5L.
Sign me up for the diesel. I'd get one in an instant. The 330d probably makes close to 300lb/ft of torque!
