Here's the thing- we don't drive engines. We drive cars.

So what ever BMW did to make a four-cylinder car feel faster than a six cylinder car, it works. Could be the engine, could be the transmission, could be the weight of the materials, who knows. The F30 just feels like a flat out faster car.

And I don't care about it, frankly. When I first read that BMW was coming out with a four-cylinder 328i, I was very skeptical and was expecting have to buy a 335i. But about 15 seconds into my test drive, I realized how silly a thought that was. It's a great car, incredibly fast. I don't know how they did it; I'm just glad they did it.
