Maybe we are saying the same thing, BMW's latest phraseology is somewhat devoid of logic, as are their long model designations LOL

I totally agree with you on BMW's phraseology and model designations.

Actually, the Twin is in reference to fuel injection technology and fully-variable performance control (either VANOS or Valvetronic or both).
