BMW likes to use the x40i designation only on the higher-model cars, i.e. 640i and 740i.

Let the F30 335i sales commence... no engine upgrade means 335 owners are relevant for at least 1 more year.

That is very disappointing. I have been looking forward to a new engine and new technology.

This is like people making judgments based on camo'ed test cars. You can't tell anything. These aren't the real numbers. BMW isn't stupid.

I'm sure they'll change it to 440i eventually. Just like when the e90 came out they still used 325 and 330 then updated them

What's the difference between EU 420d and EU 425d?
I know ending in 5 usually means it's turbocharged?

Perhaps so. But let us 335 owners have our 15 minutes.

I hesitate to trust the information in this database.

Can we verify the consistency that specs of past pre-production vehicles in this database have accurately predicted the specs of their production counterparts? That would demonstrate its reliability. Specifically, I refer to specs of not-yet-in-production engines.

If, for example, this database had (or has) confirmed the 300hp N54 powered E90 335i or 414hp S65-powered E92 M3 before that information was anywhere close to public then I would be more inclined to temper my skepticism.

We know BMW will be releasing the first member of the new engine family - the three cylinder B38 - soon. The I4 and I6 should be coming shortly thereafter. Logically, all of these engine are being tested in vehicles today. And Given the shear number of prerelease BMWs seen testing in the wild, I should think that somewhere in all that data we could dig up some vehicles with all sorts of new and interesting details of upcoming engines. If that is, such information really is out there.

How bout it? Can we pull some info on the 1GTs, 3GTs, X4s, F2x 2s, and 4GCs running around out there? Or at least an F15 X5. Or surely an F10 LCI at least (N63Tu 550i coming? 320hp 540i coming?).

*20d = N47T ~180hp
*25d = N47TT ~215hp
*30d = N57T ~255hp
*35d = N57TT ~310hp

In North America we only get the single turbo engines (and only one engine per series at most). They will, by all appearances from what we know, be rebadged 328d and 335d here.
