My issue is why can't BMW "throw in" just a little more power? So they followed Audi in the 4-cyl turbo route, and I am now wondering whether they are also going to follow them in dropping the 335i altogether and offer instead a less "pure" M3, just like Audi now offers just a 4-cyl turbo or the S4, at least in the US.
Yes, maybe the same N54 that was offered in the 1-series M or the Z4 rated at 340 HP. Then a 335 would be worth the $3,700 premium. Maybe that will be addressed with the release of the F32
