Me too. Getting mine in the winter isolated me to just the drivers point of listening with windows up. Inside you hear nothing.

Actually the updated V8 in the upcoming M50i will be alot more than a tune:

N63B44T3 (M50i) uses higher pressure (5000psi) injectors, larger twin-scroll turbochargers, a redesigned intake manifold, and an upstream cooling radiator.

Yep... ^


This engine in the new M850i is a beast. Pulling it to 60 MPH in 3.6 seconds.

Ordering guides should hit Centers later this month. Production will begin in August as well as the rest of the 2020 X models produced at Plant Spartanburg.
