Mein Auto: 2009 BMW 335i xdrive
N54 or N55 with mods

So im looking to buy a 335 really soon but id like to know which is better in the long run and which is better performance wise. Over the lifetime of this vehicle i would upgrade to a CAI, FMIC, catback exhaust, charge pipe, and a cobb access port. The cobb gets much more power out of the n54 rather than the n55 because of twin turbo and twin spool single turbo...any ideas?

N54 is the performance mod sweet spot - massive volume of experiential and mechanical knowledge available.
