I'm not saying the N20 is not a good engine choice. Just that it is not (and can't be by virtue of design) as smooth and silky as its predecessor inline sizes.
I drove it and thought it was pretty smooth. The torque reminded me of my N54. You should test drive it when it comes out, or drive a Z4 28i.
