It just seems a little odd they would rather work on the 5er than the 3er first, considering that BMW sells more 3-series than all the other models combined. One would think the potential customer base would be much larger on the 3-series.
I would typically agree, but the 545i/550i crowd has a good deal more disposable income than the 3 series owner and as I mentioned in my post above, they don't need to sell a ton of kits right off the bat to want to develop this thing. I think they'd probably sell more 5 series kits in its first 6 months-1 year of availability than N52 3 series kits. So that's kind of my guess.

I know I said my subsequent posts would always contain new information, but I just wanted to reply to that, so back to work for me...
