Just watched engine for the plus six (from a supra) be stripped down.

Not going to be a DIY prospect really!

Underneath all that "Stuff" it is still a very modern, but very normal, inline DOHC 6 cylinder engine.
I was really impressed with the engineering and thought that had gone into every detail.

For the normal owner the B58 should be good for 250,000 miles.

Not sure 1000 bhp in a Plus Six S would be a good idea!

He mentioned "Start/Stop": My M140i had this feature. Does the Plus Six?
