    Info' that Joker stated is closer to mine, and it has more sense... Currently, in A4 and A6, 2.0 TDI producing 177 hp, and there are roumores that upcoming A3 will be having that same engine with 180 hp!
    220-230hp for 2.0 bi-turbo sounds totaly reasoneble to me!

    @ Joker & AndyBG: thanks, I hope we will see soon this fab engine.
    Yes gtd biturbo 220hp may offset bmw 125d, I guess there will be a 4motion version of it too

    Dear Friends,

    as far as the "Sound" goes, most of it comes from aid by the Audio System.

    "Normal" Sound here:

    That is just my opinion of course, if I had a nice car I want to hear it roar and breathe naturally not through the sound sistem...everyday I like old cars more and more...

    In every UK mag you look the M550dx is be tested which is really dumb on BMW's part, testing a car which we won't be even offered here. Talk about sticking two fingers up at their British customers.

    Dont forget the base price in Germany for the BMW 550xd is ~20.000,00 Euro higher than the BMW 535xd.
