It's a masterpiece because BMW is able to pull off the 328i being quicker and more efficient, at the same time. Compare that 2.0 turbo 4 to say the one in the ATS. The BMW 4 is simply put an engineering marvel for the reason that BMW was able to cut off 2 cylinders and from the previous gen 3 series and it STILL keeps pace with the old I6 that it replaces. That's the point you're not seeing. I hate how it sounds like a diesel, but that's another topic all together.
