Very true... much like the BMW e46 323, which was actually a 2.5 liter, but they didn't want to name it too closely to the 328 (a truly named 2.8L). The bavarians are astute at this naming game, aren't they?

(I'll be in Brisbane mid month if you are up for a beer or are longing for some motorcycle parts from the inexpensive US. Delivery fee is a beer:)
Thanks, but I'm all set with parts - with only a few months to go, I'm actually flowing things in the other direction. Doesn't mean we can't have a beer. Shoot me a message before you're here.
