Actually, the lighter N52 makes higher hp than an M54 and has a screaming 7K redline to die for. The '2006 330i is kind of the cult car of E90s because of it.
You're kidding yourself if you think the N52 is better than the M54. More "power" isn't always the best judge of a "good" engine.

A quick google search reveals a LOT of issues with it (not to mention the firsthand stuff I see and hear from my buddy who owns a shop). The M54 is PROVEN to live 300k miles and up, we don't have that data yet on the N52.
