    Is a turbocharger considered part of the engine assembly in terms of update/backdate allowances?

    If it's not, then this thought just popped into my head:

    2012 328 (4-cyl turbo) and 2012 335i are on the same line. That would mean you could take the bigger 335 turbo and put it on the 328. You'd have the lighter weight of a 4-cylinder, with all the power capability of the bigger turbo hotness. Discuss.

    A more efficient way to litter the course with bottom-end parts? :)

    Isn't the 335 motor some sort of a twin or bi-turbo type setup?

    15.10.C.4.a:

    "Turbochargers or superchargers may be updated/backdated only in conjunction
    with the accompanying complete engine unit."

    The N54 engine (earlier 335's) was twin turbo. The newer N55 has a dual-scroll single turbo.

    Yea, that was added around '98-'99 when the DSM's first started running in ESP.
