Here's a poll that will show how many people have a certain type of engine in their cars. And this is only for cars. Please no motorcycles, airplanes, trains, buses, trucks, or any other mode of transportation you have.

l4 - four cylinders in a row (today's standard, example: VW Polo 1.4)
flat 4 - two cylinders opposed to each other (old VW Beetle)

Edit: Cobol beat me to it. :)

Or rather have you got a boxer engine? (Unlikely unless you run a Scooby Doo).

I suspect he meant "Boxer 4" when he wrote "Flat 4"


Also, V8 FTW.

I have one of GM's old but reliable 3.8 V6's. It's a Series II 3800 with a Supercharger.

I dont think anyone has made (for a car that is) a V4 or V5. If you have examples (and not prototypes of some 1800's car) please post.
I voted V8 as i have a S500, tho i dont drive it much.. I could have picked I4 as i also have GTI and its my day to day ride.
And W16, i know someone is going to be a punk and vote that.
EDIT:
Also What about the VR Motors? VW ships a few VR6's.

The V5 is just a very narrow angle V (15 degrees IIRC). So it still looks like an in-line

3.0L V6 for me.
