Engine swap
I can't believe it finally happened. BMW is sourcing engines from Audi, based on the picture on page 56 of the November 2007 'Scrap Metal' article. The Audi engine actually matches the exterior color of the BMW nicely. I guess I read your magazine a bit too closely.

Your magazine is great. But I did notice in this month's issue what I believe may be a layout error. The underhood shot on page 56 shows the Audi powerplant, not the BMW's. Just thought you would want to know.

Helluva transplant, huh? RS4 powerplant in an E92 M3... OK, you got us.

Go Ahead And Vent
What is that monstrosity on the cover of the November issue? The driving experience may be wonderful, but I didn't think there would ever be a car on the cover of my favorite magazine that resembles all the tasteless 26-inch-wheeled American pieces of crap I see every day. I've worked in SCCA, I've built many BMW racecars, I know they can be pretty tacky. Never have I seen something that ugly. The Buick side vents, the horrible graphic, it looks like it was cut from one of The Fast and the Furious movies because it was too over the top-is that possible? Way to ruin a Bimmer, Schnitzer. Way to promote horrible body styling, ec. Props to the pages behind that Creamsicle.

Well, styling critiques are always subjective, but we'd have to agree on the whole Creamsicle paint scheme thing. Even so, you have to admit it takes balls to put a one-off tester on the 'Ring-particularly a tuned Z4 M-and much more so having a journalist drive it.

Bulls And Bullruns
First of all, I would like to say that I am this magazine's biggest female fan. Now help me out here. I'm reading your 'Total Bull' story (November '07) and on page 74, Robb Rill says: "You wanna take my Murcilago for a spin?" The only Lambo I see in the entire story is a black Gallardo (#15 with Darkcyd Racing on it). I may be a girl, but I know a thing or two about cars and this is bothering me. So please clarify: is it just me or is a Gallardo being called a Murcilago? Am I getting confused?

No, you're not confused. The pictured Lambo is indeed a Gallardo, driven by one of Robb Rill's Darkcyd compatriots. We never actually got a shot of Rill's black Murci, it was that fast.
