    BMW's wunderkind 3 liter twin turbo straight 6 should be reliably tunable to 420 hp by the end of the year. Your choice?

    the 335i coupe is dead sexy

    420hp seems unlikely though...

    Unlikely? Its twin-tubro and modestly tuned....with some supporting mods I/H/E/Tune 420 doesn't seem too unreal to me

    Edit

    335i = 300hp
    535i = 208hp
    and there is no X5 3.5

    Coupe is by far the best looking of the bunch. Although I think you would have reliability issues trying to get 420hp out of it.

    The 5 Series and the X5 both use the older 3.0L normally aspirated inline six, NOT the twin turbo engine. Dumbass.

    There is no 535i (yet) or X5 3.5i.

    335i Coupe would be my choice. I would hold off on jumping on the Vishnu bandwagon though. The BMW ECU is a smart unit, and it will be interesting to see how it adapts to the downstream changes current tuners are using to up the hp.
