Kind'a cool, but rather I'd have a foil wrap done so it could be changed later if needed.
My question - is BMW going for the all time record for the smallest engine in a sports car? Their power to weight ratio is getting worse. MY 2013 they'll announce a 1.0 liter model, and then what, MY 2014 a sub-1.0 liter model? I just hope they're able to keep the 3.0 liter alive.
At least Porsche is holding it's ground by increasing engine size in a sports car and able to maintain the same carbon and fuel efficiency footprint.
