Scott, I think a lot of people, including myself, are afraid that if the M3 goes turbo, the high redline will no longer be there.

Believe it or not, my favorite thing about my M3 is the high redline and how power is delivered.

Please... Tell us the redline on the F3X M3 will be 8000 or more and that peak power will be delivered towards the end of the RPM range.

I know you probably can't say much right now, but is BMW working on getting a high RPM engine for the turbo M3? If you can, please confirm that high RPM is one of the goals even though it's going turbo.

Thanks Scott.
