...and everyone for the past two years has called me crazy when I said that this engine would put out no more than the X5/6 M. Told you so.

Anyway, I like the look overall. Looks like the E62/63 wheels but much better. I like the rotors and calipers. Is the weight up another 10% and will the torque really make up for this? Engine picture is great.

Will M DCT be more reliable than the SMG III or can we expect more $5k repairs every 75 kmi?

Active rear diff. is a huge plus. tire and wheel size up just a notch.

Looking forward to breaking into low 20 mi/gal and 400 mi range on road trips. I'm guessing 0-60 mi/h 3.8 s?

Will we get night vision finally?
