Click here for a review of the new BMW 330i engine

The BMW M54 engine has (among other things) the following advantages over the Toyota 2JZ-GE engine:

1> Double Vanos (Intake and Exhaust Cam variable valve timing) versus VVT-i (Intake cam only)
2> Lighter aluminum block.
3> Broader torque curve.
4> More torque and HP.
5> Much better fuel economy

Excerpt from my friend's e-mail that's ordering a BMW 330i:
"I just saw the mileage listing on the sticker, and the milaege is
horrible! 18/23??? That's a number for an SUV, not a sports sedan."

Give me some Ammo guys.....

I don't have much to tell your friend other than the fact that YOU can buy alot of gas for the price difference he is paying.

TEG,
That's true, however there will be a lot more wheeling and dealing with the 330i than with the IS300 (very little bargining margin in comparison).. My friend got quite a good deal on his 330i (on order) and I've heard as little as $1,750 over invoice on the BMW 330i.
