Test drove a German spec 530i with steptronic transmission today and the adaptive steering with sport package, comfot sport seats. Why am I telling you this here. It was really cool. The seats were VERY comfortable, and the steering was AWESOME!! Nothing like my 2001 530! It handled and turned like nothing I have driven before. WILL want it on the 635 I am first in line for. Also, the PDC had a graphic display where the display is. VERY COOL! Anyway, just my little two cents worth for what I expect to see in the 6 series. I will be attending the car show 15th. Got tickets today.

Does that have the 3.5L Valvetronic V8? I wonder if/when it's coming stateside and in which cars. You wouldn't happen to know of the engine's hp and torque ratings, would you?

Yeah, it's the same engine as the 735i, so expect the same hp and torque ratings.

the 645, 635, and 630. Not sure of dates but know the 645 is first in Spring and 635 is around Oct because that's the one I am waiting for.

...which probably means that the 5 Series will get that engine as well. After all is said & done, I'm pretty sure we will be saying Asta La'Vista to the least here in the U.S. anyway.

series will have a 530, 535, and I think 540 or 545? The 6 series wil have the 630, 635 and 645 until of course the M6 comes out.
