With the smaller powerplant, it's conceivable that one doesn't need the Sport package and it's Adaptive M Supension on the 320i, might be tight in the corners as-is because it has less power, less torque, lighter weight, might escape the body roll issue.

BJ

wouldn't the 320i need the sport package just as much as a 328i? its basically the same engine right.

i mean yes sure less power and torque, but im pretty sure the engine in the 320i has more than enough power to get some body roll since you can get that on a 328i at even 40mph on a curve.

maybe if they came out with a 1.6 L i-3 320i (the 3 cylinder makes 180ish hp in the prototypes that have been driven) then maybe you get a little more weight savings there..
