According to this suit, base HP is rated at 480HP and CP is rated at 510HP. Maybe he's just rounding numbers up.

He fires the engine up at 6:11 on the X3M. Sounds much better then the S55 to me.

Thanks for the ///M mirrors. Now where's the power dome?

Can't wait to see one in the showroom!

Doesn't sound much different than the S55 to my ears in the video.

I want to see in person... the X3 M40i looked good in pictures but was too compact in comparison to the X5. Exterior and especially the interior.

The S58 actually seems like the first boosted engine properly built by M, unlike the tuner special S55/S55. Even the bore and stroke is different vs. the B58. Wonder what else is unique.

Visually it's going to have more presence than X3/4 M40i but it's still going to be compact compared to the X5.

It was shot in an enclosed area. It did sound promising though.

At least now there will be more aftermarket parts produced to throw on the M40i

Do we know the towing capacities for these bad boys? Is it the same as the regular X3?

I wish X4M was more menacing looking.

Man that Merc is ugly, although it looks like they restrained themselves and could have made the front emblem an inch or two larger. A fake diffuser on a 4,600 pound SUV really makes sense too.

That start up was no where near as raspy as the S55, sounded deeper but we don't know if that was a true cold start or not

Looking forward to the test drive of X4M. Hopefully, red leather interior will be available as an option.
