F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

IMO if BMW wants to give their 4cyl engines a decent sounding exhaust note they need to either get lessons from or reverse engineer the Italian cars, specifically Alfa Romeo or Fiat. Now that is decent, any Alfa or best the new Fiat 124 spyder Abarth.

I don't recall the n20 sounding so bad. There are youtube videos comparing the n20 to n52 and it's not nearly as inferior as what's in the OP. Perhaps it's a bad mic. Even my 4cyl accord sounds better.

4 cylinder direct injection never sound good on stock mufflers... Fortunately a catback exhaust will fix that
