    I really don't think you could pick between an N54 and N55 audibly from a video Click here to enlarge

    Your question is a good one. If it is just the same $#@! with more boost, BMW has completed the sell out and diluting of M process.

    I've been away playing soldier for the Army with no connection to the outside world. What happens while I'm gone? The 1M Coupe is announced to be officially released. So I'm sorry to say, I will not be doing much to my car right now while I wait for the official engine announcement. If it has the N54 I will be trading my car for it. If not, I may get back to work on my 1!

    You went and played Army instead of staying here and posting? I am disappointed.

    why change? just for the fresh, no-mile engine? dont you have an n54? or is it for the suspension changes bmw must have done, the wheels of course and the other cosmetics? you could save money by buying aftermarket suspension parts for your 1 if it doesnt already have some. by trading you may be paying a lot, the new 1M is definitely going to have a premium no?
