|Cologero||This new alternative for sure isn't cheap I mean making that much horsepower from such a small displacement is huge. It is something to consider but the price could drive me away from this one.|

I would definitely try one out. I'd be interested to hear what the mileage is on these engines. As long as the car has good acceleration and handling and such, I can't be too upset if the engine doesn't rumble enough.
It all depends on what the trade off is.

|Beemer-Bammer||I'd be curious about how long these engines would last without having issues and of course would these be a cheaper alternative to the straight six turbo or will it be an option that cost double?|

|Cologero||Come on guys... Tell me your not impressed its a god **** 1.5L 3 cylinder thats making over 300hp what more do you guys want. I'd seriously give it a go, but i am still waiting to hear about the mileage this engine would get.|

Well they are still just "considering" at this point. I mean if they can get that much then sky is the limit for the future of this newly discovered tech.
it's unheard of for a three cylinder to make that much but I have a feeling it relying solely on the turbo to pump out such high numbers.

|Marachi||That is a little over 100hp per cylinder. sounds impressive but hows the reliability of them. And how will the engine tone be like, I really would hate driving around a bmw that sounds like a lawn mower|

310hp out of a 3 cylinder engine? That is a lot of boost.
