My perspective will not count for much because lets face it the N52 is no where near the engine the N20 is.
Def will do. I must say the N20 is really a fine little engine. Certainly underrated by BMW. I would say this engine is sufficient for 95%+ of drivers. The fuel efficiceny is really something that is amazing. my 23 mile ride to work is about 20% city and 80% highway, i drive it in eco pro and avg 38mpg.

My only experience in the N55 is a loaner 335 convertible, which really is not the best way to test it imo. But from what people say about it it has less lag than the N54(which hardly had any) and better efficiceny, so im looking forward to experience it. Even if the N20 is stressed(18psi) it doesnt feel it and pulls real nice up to about 5500 where it starts to lose steam.

And i agree about the N52, N20 is def an improvement on the N52 imo.
