Seems to be, on further reading so far all indicators are that TwinPower nowadays mean twin-scroll.

also the N55 exhaust manifold 'seems' to suggest the airflow being split into 2, for the twin-scroll feed setup

most literature suggests the modern TwinPower units are single turbo based.

the link I sent below reads 'modern BMW TwinPower engines don't necessarily use twin-scroll turbochargers, but they do have a distinct exhaust manifold that catches more exhaust pulses to feed the turbo and thus create more power with less lag'

so.. its not 2 turbos, its not a twin-scroll turbo, what exactly is the modern TwinPower Turbo then?

hello all,

My mission to buy a mid-life crisis car went from SLK or Z4 (posted here sometime back) to Porsche Boxter to Merc E350 cab to now finally in the process of purchasing a BMW 640i :P

The pre-owned 2011 car just came into the dealership is still being 'prepared' by BMW, est. 1 1/2 weeks before i  get it into my hands.

In the meanwhile would like to know if anybody has any experience with the F12, any pitfalls to watch out for..

Appreciate all words of wisdom :)

Guuess it's not illegal strictly speaking, but it can be in a motorway situation - if not under 'AVG speed' or 'stay in lane'

Has anyone been booked?

How else do u pass all the middle-lane hoggers

Lovely interior - finally one to match the competition.

Front looks good, the grill is becoming bigger but still nice there's character.

Rear end never was great after they straightened it to get 7 seats in.

the tail lights are a desaster. Done away with their so called 'signature' L-lights?? What's going on even the M8 has the L-light. This looks like the ford s-max's rear end.

huh? meaning your kill switch doesn't exactly 'kill' everything? - how else do the front terminals have connectivity with the battery?
