The N/A V6 has some disadvantage from a standstill of course.

What I found interesting is, when I first tested the 3.6 right after it was released, I thought it lacked refinement compared to my N/A I6 328i when revved high. In the latest test of another 3.6, did not have that same complaint, probably because I was more aggressive this time.

The bottom line, the ATS needs to be pushed hard, it is tuned such way, whether the 3.6 or 2.0T.
