People out there really like the 3.0L NA engine? I find it to be a joke every time I get a loaner. ...and the roar of the 3.0L NA? Really??

Everyone keeps beating on turbo failure and HPFP failures of the early 335s. People are crazy if they expected to buy a 2007 or 2008 335 and not have problems. Shoot if you played it right, you had your 2007 or 2008 335 replaced with a 2010 or 2011. BMW had to test the applicability of turbo engines on one of its platforms. Why not the higher end 3 and 5 (as turbos generally make a car more fun to drive)? Made sense to me. Refine that technology and then put it into use in the more mainstream cars.
