Correct, just like the F30 3 series sedan there is no NA engine option. The base 428i will be powered by the N20 4 cylinder turbo. If you haven't driven one I suggest you give it a try, it handily out drives and out performs the N52. The big brother 440i will be powered by a new inline 6 single turbo based on BMWs latest EfficentDynamics engine family. Expect a power bump over the F30 N55 engine.
