I currently dive a 2010 135i and frankly believe the G37 sedan is just as fast. Super nimble for a sedan, totally impressed. Still love BMW's but 3 series has nothing on the G37! Please explain?
I had a 2010 g37 before the 135i. Past 5500 RPM the engine sounds coarse, very harsh. Its just very unrefined compared to the 3.0l twin turbo. And torque? Idk what torque you are experiencing, but there is no decent torque until your RPM is 3500 or above. You might like the engine, but to me its terrible for a luxury car.
