Because both the Z4 and X3 in the R6 would have been working with 3.0 liters ... so the next M3 could really make a get R6, then this engine will certainly be introduced with little effort.
A V6, however one would have already put a lot of effort into it and that would be risky for the remaining term of the two models in terms of expected numbers of very.

That is also my thinking. BMW does not want to put the S65 into the Z4 for obvious reasons. An I6 would not be a problem but because the M3 is getting a V6, the implant is going to be more costly. This does not mean we won't see and Z4 M35i LCI, instead of the Z4 sDrive35is, and an X3 M35i with probably also a diesel version.
