    the only markets where the car may have more power is outside the EU.

    the US car has a louder exhaust and they tested the car up to 380hp. I do not think it will make that on release, but I have repeatedly heard figures above 335hp (340ps). whether that is nonsense is anyone's guess, but that particulate filter and noise regulations really hurt the EU spec vehicles, just as they do on the Z4 and others.

    It's interesting that the particulate filter output (335) and non filter (380)
    Are the identical outputs to the B58TU engines.

    Does the non filter have the B58B30O1? Or is it a tuned B58B30M1?

    Both of those are B58TU engines.

    The B58B30O1 (O=Upper) is 335hp-340hp with the filter and 380hp without

    B58B30M1 (M=Middle) is the intergrated manifold head which also has 335-340hp.

    I think its weird to even put on the filter in countries since the B58M1 makes the same power and is more environmentally friendly

    Ah, I knew both were ti engines, but whether the supra has the O1 spec and a filter is what I was curious about. The O1 spec has the 6 exhaust ports.

    Or is the engine some other derivative entirely?

    I think the O1 will only have the filter where emissions require it, I don't knows if that applies to Australia or not.

    According to RealOem it has the M1 but we know that leak to be misleading.

    Yeah, I'm not an expert on it, but seems an unfortunate addition.

    Yeah I'm unsure what au get. Our Z4 is only 250kW so I don't know what that means for the A90. I know th Z4 is the M1 engine

    February Car and Driver has a cover page intro type article...my impression was the response was pretty luke warm. Definitely seems to suggest that anyone's dream about pulling big power reliably out of the BMW engine are going to fall far short of the old 2JZ.

    Makes account, says MKV can't make big power, ignores the initial ethos of the car to be a fun drive, can see ten years into the future with certainty about the b58 modding ability.

    Understood, car is a flop

    The big magazine seems to be pretty biased towards their sponsors.. take whatever magazine with a grain of salt.

    US Press drives will not happen until spring. However, pre-production reviews are already out from the event in Spain.
