    Shame too - the 3 series chassis is perfect for a 3.0L diesel engine, although it will be interesting to see if the B57 responds to tuning like the M57/N57 has.

    I assume you meant B57, I originally wrote B58 as well but that is the gas motor

    I am guessing that this isn't their quad turbo version, I find it interesting they have done this. I wonder how many variations there are, 1, 2, 3, 4 turbos?
