I think the move to FI is a necessary one. Look at AMG's bi-turbo V12, it's a beast. The (unfair) comparo between the M6 and SL65 on Insideline had the M6 beaten into a pulp. Either BMW increases their engine size like crazy, or they slap some turbos. Otherwise, the competition is just gonna leave them behind.

Hold out for the BRZ STI or... Rocket Bunny FRS. Update: Scratch that. I've got a 2015 5.0/6MT with my name on it.
