Also, 4 cyl. engine looks like it completely fits behind the front axle - i.e. this really is mid engine car like Miata or S2000. My e90 328i I6 looks like it has 1.5 cylinders in front of the front axle.

It's not the turbo... It's DI that makes me worried. Our MCS spent 2 weeks on engine de-carbonization under warranty and I'm not buying another DI car where intake valve deposits issue is not addressed. Some of them might get into critical condition just like our MCS and require towing and engine head machining, some might be driveable, but the engine would not develop specd power\torque.
