And if you look at the EPA ratings for the 335 and the 5.0, and I think they're off by 1-2 from each other (I think my '08 335 was rated at 17/26 and the 5.0 is 15/26, but the new 335 with the 8spd will be much better). Hardly a gas guzzler. The American automakers have done a real good job with V8 fuel efficiency for a while now. I'd throw in there that the 5.0 will take non-premium gas, but I think it's in the same boat as the N54/55 in that regard, it just won't run at peak power and efficiency, so that is a moot point.

"No handling"? You guys kill me.... Also, see above for mileage concerns.
