With all that said, I'm happy with the N/A 3.0L... There's just something about it that get's me every time. BMW has nailed the N/A in-line 6 and nothing will change that. The market is quickly moving toward the most efficient ways of generating as much power as possible, and forced induction is clearly the way to go.
I understand what you mean. I'm sure the 128i has plenty of power for most. I do open mine up quite often, and I love the power. Like you said, it's never enough power.
