    i trust BMW so i believe they will get an equally powerful engine as the V8s or even more powerfull than that..... Lets just keep our fingers crossed

    I have no doubt whatsoever that BMW will make the engine very powerful, it's just the loss of the term 'V8' from the BMW stable :sad2:

    It's sad to see an iconic engine be discontinued. But I have a lot of faith in BMW. I'm sure whatever they do next will be mighty, and probably be more fuel efficient and kinder to the environment to keep the tree huggers quiet.

    Don't know if I feel the same about VW doing away with their V6 range though. A mate of mine had a V6 4Motion 3 Door Golf while back. Man that was fun car. Don't think there's necessarily grounds to really do away with the V6 just yet.

    I love the V8, and i think it has been one of the best engines that the company has ever produced. I am doubting if they could top this legend hmm

    It's all about emissions. Bmw's current straight six 3.0 petrol has 270 bhp but is only a band I tax and has a combined mpg of 37. Amazing for a big saloon with a 0-60 of 6.5

    My diesel has a combined of 42 mpg. That's next to nothing in terms of petrol to diesel.
