Is the BMW 3 Series about to be Turbo Charged?

Well we have not seen a turbo in a BMW for some time now, the deep groaning engines that we love to listen to have not been given the turbo treatment and that given in to the whining sound of the turbo. Even when other manufacturers like Cosworth and AMG, have placed turbos in virtually all their models to boost the power, BMW held back and stuck with the old faithful, but now it seems they have given in to pressure and are planning to add turbo power to the already successful BMW 3 series, with the 3.5 ltr injection engine.

Why though, yes there is more power, but does this actual BMW model is great as it stands, its fast and it has the deep sound of those cylinders thumping in synchronised dance when the throttle is pressed, of course the worry about having a turbo on board is the fact that when press the throttle hard to accelerate there is the famous turbo lag which is not one of the best feelings in the world, but technology has caught up with the humble turbo charger and it would appear the turbo lag is a thing of the past, which is probably why the engineers at BMW have revised their reservations about turbos and decided to bring a turbo powered BMW into the fleet and see what happens, if successful then we can probably expect to see the turbo rolled out across the fleet.

What do you think?
