I believe 307kW works out to be just north over 411 bhp. IIRC, it uses the same LS2 as it is in the 'Vette.<p>Pricing ranges from just under 62,890 AUD (49,189 USD) to 76,990 AUD (60,218 USD), nearly equivalent to the 323i - 325i in the local market <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
