      Welcome aboard from a Coupe addict. :thumbsup:

      No idea if it helps, but as much as I loved the M54 in my E46 the N52 in my first E86s (and current E90) was so much better!

      But if an MC is in budget why wouldn't you? Although I may be biased. :roll:
      Coupes because stunning!
      Current - Silver Grey MC, Imola Red heated Nappa & carbon trim. Aeros, H & R Coil-overs, 224s, OE Strut brace, Nav, cup-holders, DSP Hi-Fi, pdc, cruise, MFSW, no CDV! E90 330i daily
      Gone - Montego Blue
      Gone - Ruby Black

      Ye been reading a fair bit about the N52, seems a sorted engine. I’m wondering if I can justify a MC tbh. Got my VW T5, e46 330ci, motorbike, scooter n getting asked ‘how many toys do you need ??’ 😂 Maybe a Z4 3 ltr facelift could be the compromise 🤦‍♂️😆
