So is it confirmed that 320i is purely an electronic detune of 328i engine-wise(and the two versions use exactly the same engine and associated engine parts)?

If you look at RealOEM, the 328 N20 and N26 pistons are "ended." The 320 N20 has the only current part number listed. Is there other information showing that the current 320 pistons are any different than the current 328 pistons?

Terry,
Care to speculate on what stage 1 adds in the 320i? By my guesstimates it should put out 210-220 bhp?
