I cross shopped e46 zhp and e90 n52. I liked e90 more in almost everything except i liked e46 design more. And zhp engine sound. N52 is ok when you rev it, but too plain in dd.

+1

Also, please note that e90 325, 328 are same engine as e90 330.

I'd say 5 and 8 are intentionall de-tuned by bmw.

Recent engine tuning products bring 325 and 328 close to 330 power.

I opened a topic like this with a poll at the forum dedicated to my previous car. The trend was absolutely opposite. That eventually caused me to sell the car and buy BMW.
