Does it take an air dam that big to go 150 MPH?

Nope but that much HP needs a lot of cooling!

$13k for HP increase is a lot of money spent back then. The green color makes it look odd. The white model looks great. Even gray is not bad from a front view.

YouTube video.

it might have been rather frustrating to have paid that sort of money for an engine upgrade only to have BMW bring out the 4.8iS within 12-18 months with an engine developed by Alpina but sold by BMW for only a small price bump over the 4.4?

Awful presumptuous of you to think people buying BMWs think rationally about their purchases
