It will happen eventually. The HPI engines are coming to the 3-series (E92 and E93 330i, not sure if they will be in the E90 and E91) in March.

HPI is BMW's marketing-speak for direct injection. It stands for High Precision Injection I believe. The turbocharged N54 engine (used in the 335i) has HPI, but Advevo was talking about the 272hp naturally aspirated version (which is known as the N53).

The N53 is really what I am wanting...that way the car might still have close to a 3200lbs curb weight. With the N54, you are looking at probably closer to 3400lbs.
