That is incorrect, all 335iS 2011-2013 have the N54. I promiss you that. Dont get caught up in their marketing word play

Pay attention to the discription

N54 335iS
3.0-liter dual overhead cam (DOHC), 24-valve inline turbocharged 320-horsepower 6-cylinder engine with TwinPower Turbo technology and Double-VANOS steplessly variable valve timing [Source]

N55 335i
3.0-liter dual overhead cam (DOHC), 24-valve inline turbocharged 300-horsepower 6-cylinder engine with TwinPower Turbo technology, Valvetronic, and Double-VANOS steplessly variable valve timing [Source]


As you can see the N55 comes with Valvetronics and the N54 does not

The marketing term TwinPower is used for the TwinTurbo charged N54 and the TwinScroll single turbo N55
