Oh nice. My coworker/friend has a black 4 door 2.5RS and he swapped in an STI engine with straight pipes and catback. It's so loud.

i reckon they should just drop the i though seeing as all of the engines are fuel injected these days
it was only cos back in the 70's carburetors where more common and so fuel injection was a unique engineering feature whereas these days pretty much all cars are made with fuel injection

Why? BMW's kept it all these years and all these years it's worked fine.

It really isn't that hard. Say if you had a 335xi, that would be a 3.0-litre twin turbo inline six that is fuel injected and the car is AWD. If it was a 335i then it would the same, but only RWD not AWD.

Well I guess it makes it easier to differentiate between diesel and fuel injected.
