    Dunno...
    They're diluting the formula with each new generation.
    There's about 20% steel the D5 body (plus some Magnesium and composites - which aren't a bad thing).
    From essentially 0% in the D2.

    No doubt about its technology credentials however.

    There's lots of discussion amongst the A8parts guys.
