It doesn't surprise me the quad-turbo is on the way out.

The standard 30d with its single-turbo is so under-engineered, all they need to do is some tuning re-maps and they can lift it from 195kW (265HP) to 240kW (322HP) without any serious effort.

Some guys on the Forum's here have done the aftermarket tune or external plug-in tune on the 30d and have got some awesome results - so I think BMW have just woken up to this and will do it themselves.

If anyone wants more than 240kW/322HP, then go to a Petrol/Hybrid 40i/50i.

For me, my next model will be a Hydrogen Fuel cell - assuming BMW stick to their plans. My current 30d gets over 1,100km on a tank and sorry I cant stand this niggling crap about counting and being worried about sub 100 kilometres on a battery charge.
