This is a great idea, especially with how well the Germans have been at cutting the weight in the their cars with the development of aluminun and composites. A 4 banger should be able to easily power the next generation cars. EDIT: I have been informed my 3 series is a porky SOB that weighs 3,800 lbs and the 1 series is no better. A snowball has a better chance in hell than the US does of BMW coming out with a 3,200 lb or less car that could be powered by a 4. The only car rumored ot be near this is the Z2 and I thought I heard that just got canned. Confirm?
