Mein Auto: 2013 328i MSport

I guess we would see dyno charts soon enough on this. For now, 328i does appear to be a $2k-3k(expensive) factory tune versus 320i.

As tim330i noted, the bmwusa data can be incorrect too, or else it would really be odd that 320i N20 MT only get 184 lb-ft@1250-4500rpm ....
Yeah, so much for being excited for my car to arrive. For me, the whole point in getting a 328 was its unrealized power. Now it seems the goal post has moved.
