Sorry, I am not sure where I should put this at, but anyhow the source is (provide you can read traditional chinese)
there will be new engine line up for 7 series (and I would assume those engine would go on to 5 series as well)
730i 2996c.c. 258hp/6600rpm 30.6kgm/2500﹣4000rpm
740i 4000c.c. 306hp/6300rpm 39.8kgm/3500rpm
750i 4799c.c. 367hp/6300rpm 50.0kgm/3400rpm
we already know about the new 3 liter and the 4.4 liter replacement, but the 4 liter V8is new (replace the 3.5 liter V8, which never comes to the States anyway). So do you guys think there will be a 540i due to this? or the north american market will stay with the 530i(with the new 3 liter) and 545i (soon to be 550i) only. I personally think this 4 liter V8 will be pretty nice, cheaper than the soon to be 550i with same hp as E500.
