It might sound different in the F30.

Performance was quite good btw. Not sure if the F30 is a heavier car so that could factor (sure someone knows this off the top of their head; am too lazy to look it up).

As others have noted, I expect the F30 with N20 will sell incredibly well despite any of this. Maybe because of this.
I think the f30 328 is less than 100lbs heavier than the Z4
