    Title says it all. I'm surprised that no part maker has followed what Alpina are doing with their D3 and adding a Bi-turbo to it. Alpina say that the bi-turbo is made up of a small turbo and large turbo. The small turbo gives a big boost at lower revs and the large turbo allows the 4 pot diesel to rev past 5000.
    I'd love to get such a turbo for my car.
    What are the options? And are there any turbo kits for the 6 pot 330D?

    It would seem to be an obvious but very expensive modification, it is strange that BMW don't make a bi-turbo 3 series when one of their
    competitors do in the guise of the Saab 9-3?

    Either they've missed a trick or the guys at the top just said "No".

    Did you also notice Alpina had ditched the runflats

    bmw do the twin turbo 2 ltr engine in the 1 series. rumour has it that it will find its way into the next 3 series, as well as the 3 cylinder diesel.

    they were trialing a 3 turbo set up too but dunno how far they got with that.

    So it might be possible to retrofit in the future? I thought Garret would have made one for the aftermarket scene. Well lets hope.
