340 would mean an 8-cyl engine 3-series...
if there is any bump in power, it will probably remain a 335i or 336i
but traditionally, x40 is reserve for 8-cyl. engine bmw cars.
I dont see the numbering change so soon... especially the actual and F30 335i are really 3 liters engine, not 3.5 liters.
and so is the 328i, it should really be a 320ti
ya all that rationale went out the window in '07 when they started the 335 ... you dont see a relationship btw L and badge #'s anymore period
