Somewhere north of Phoenix , we realized something was missing. The wonderfully powerful, twin-turbo six-cylinder of the unleashed yet another torrent of torque. Speeds easily escalated into triple digits, but there it wasn't.

 

Again.

 

The turbos are absolutely quiet.

 

No whine. No huffing. No waste gate popping. Nothing but power accentuated by a perfectly flat, electronically modulated torque curve that peaks just off idle and doesn't fall off a Newton-meter until the tach needle swings past 5000 rpm.

(If your mind is searching for a soundtrack, pick any scene from The Fast and The Furious franchise.) With the top and windows down, we would have heard anything that was there to be heard. But the only thing audible was the smooth and refined note of BMW's most powerful non-M-series six-cylinder engine. MORE--

I crashed my 2007 328i BMW while going 110 mph. It was drivers error. The Impressive part of my story is I was able to walk away without a scratch. This car gets all 5 stars in each category from me.
