Do I ask for too much? I like the car otherwise...

I know i would be missing the crazy torque of the 550i, but I can get another kind of pleasure
from the 6cyl engine that 550i won't offer me.
We were waiting for a 2012 because of not wanting to have to deal with first year issues especially since we might purchase the car to own, and first year cars always have more issues no matter the age. The numb electric steering I could deal with or get used to, and the 528 Sport or M-Sport package minus the ARS would probably have been good enough for me handling wise, but when the news broke that they were dropping the NA I6 in favor of this silly 4-banger that was pretty much the last straw for me.

BMW still got our money though....
