"Souvereign Acceleration & Impressive Elasticity" - BMW's ad copy editor certainly is expressive, but translations from Germanoftentimes areawkward.

I have been following the development, curious as to what clever tricks the latest iteration of the Boxer will have to meet Euro 5 emissions whilst delivering yet more power (mid-130s, up from low 120s) and reasonable fuel mileage. The CC increase from 1170 to 1254 is a given, but whether anyone needs it or not, this is how Bay Em Vay have accomplished it with der neue R1250 Wasserboxer.

Have we accomplished half of what we dreamt we would? There may still be time.

Similar to the N62/63 V8sand N72/73 V12s that were produced in the 5 and 7 series and X5s from 2004 to present. Daz have a look through that big red book you're gonna bring and it might show it.

That heavy, red book? It's buried in the centre of a large duffle, surrounded by K bike spares and bubblewrap. Mebbe later.
study

Only two more sleeps!
