E83 is the series number - nothing to do with the engine. Like we had the E60 for the 5-series, then F10 for the newer 5-series (which has just gone to G30). Your '07 X3 3.0si has the N52B30 motor.

If you dig the M235i, you will like the M40i. The M40i is insanely fast, thanks to X-drive, and it has the same motor found in the M2 (N55B30T0) - albeit slightly de-tuned):

I test drove the X4 2.8i before ordering my X4 M40i. The 2.8i was plenty quick and responsive. So from that narrow perspective, I would say go with the 2.8i.
