From AutoWeek review

“More power, greater torque, reduced fuel consumption, lower tailpipe emissions and less weight–but better? In everyday driving, the N20 is noticeably more responsive although its sound is nowhere near as alluring as that of the engine it replaces (N52), . BMW says that will be fixed on certain models, including on an updated Z4 sDrive28i, with the addition of an electronic sound generator.”

Another electronic enhancement - can't wait to hear that one.

I prefer my N54. It doesn't feel like a pair of Turbo Chargers. It feels like a pair or TESTIES!! BIG MEATY ONES!!
