It has nothing to do with track. It has everything to do with fun. The N20 is a dull engine, unfit for a 40-50K$ Bimmer and contributes nothing like a 184HP M54 did. That was a great experience. Now to get the same level of fun of entry-level 3-series of the past, you have to settle for no less than a 335i. +15K$C more here.
