By contrast, I go to our other garage and get into the 2011 328i (N52) and am bored to death by how slow it is in the midrange (but god does it growl when you put your foot down).
I am already making 260lbs of tq to the wheels with my N20 on a load bearing dyno
That's stock software with just a muffler and midpipe.
