Both cars are separated by about 5 tenths and 3-4 mph in the 1/4 mile. That is noticeable. But let's not exaggerate.

The difference between the N52 and N55 prior to '12 was quite a bit larger.
I thought the difference between an F30 328i loaner I had and my 335i was quite large. However, I assumed that the N54 and N55 were similar because that's what BMW wants us to believe...
