Looking forward to a lighter, better balanced and cheaper 128i with a 6spd and sports seats

i think the Z4, 1 series and prolly the 3 series will fit well with the N20 but idk abt the 528i.. the car is freaking heavy, mine is abt 4000lbs with an I-6.. imagine an I-4 towing a 3800+lbs car.. i really wanna see a non bias review on it..

I just got a chance to drive a 2012 528i xDrive with the N20 and it actually performed quite impressively. The 8 spd transmission and engine pairing go together nicely and allow power on demand. It is significantly faster than the I-6 in the 2011 528i. It delivers the boost thrust you would expect, but not as dramatic as in the 535i. If you didn't know it had a 4 cylinder, you wouldn't think it did. Strong suit appears to be mid-range thrust and passing performance.

Really?? Tts sth nice to know abt.. i should head out n test the I-4 on the 528i asap.. if its really good i guess the 528 will sell well jus like wad audi did to their 2.0T. I might be tempted to trade mine for it if its tt good.. =]
