376 hp / 546 ft.lbs!?!?! That is beyond phenomenal for a stock 3.0 liter. I can't believe that it sticks together under 50.8 lbs of boost pressure. And where did they find space to tuck 3 turbos? It would be interesting to see how they were plumbed.

You should see manhart racing's website! I'm not sure what they have available for the 50d to increase its power; I'm assuming just a software reflash. Anyway they are claiming with whatever they do to it 423HP/ 663FT LBS!!!


I hope in the future there is a parts list available or a conversion kit to make our 335d's, 350d's!!!

Not available in US, but how about Canada? This would be the only car (7 series D aside) that I would like to get out of my current car.

I drove a 740d Xdrive for a week and think we need some bigger options here.
