I've stated this before in other threads and it applies here... It would be a PR nightmare if the turbo is anything but trouble free. Any problems and American consumers will run away from BMW turbos and not look back. Since FI engines are BMWs future they have a lot riding on this new engine including the confidence it can instill in the American consumer about gasoline turbos from BMW (other countries have diesel BMW turbos so they would be more understanding of issues with BMW turbo technology). I wonder if this long coupe release has anything to do with making sure the turbo is flawless before it is rolled out.
