Re: V16 BMW

V16 must sound nuts at WOT, and it would be interesting to see this make it into production.
Remove the engine to change the oil in the Phaeton? Doesnt seem reasonable at all, but stranger things have happened.

Re: V16 BMW

they had V16 on airplanes before, and for the record W configuration is nothing new, WWII Sherman tank also used W configuration based on "bunch" V6 (as I don't remember how many of them, and they kept change the engine during the war anyway).
