    A BMW that looks that good is screaming out for a straight six, or V8 petrol engine... :bashhead:

    I get the point of these hybrid cars as the small petrol engine will charge the batteries but the battery powered cars still have to be charged from a power station producing CO2 but not where the car is being used. Keeps London clean but pollutes the rest of us!!.

    I guess they will do the same as the new 4 series by piping the 6 or 8 cylinder engine note into the speakers.

    Wouldn't have one even if I could afford it, Not even close to getting these cars right, but give it 10 years or so?
