The main dilemma for people is preferring a NA engine over a FI. However once you go FI, it really does not matter if its inline or V with turbos. Both will have the exact same feel with the V6 likely being more smooth with less lag given its configuration being condusive to bmw's current turbo setup on the m5.
word. ppl get all worked up about I6 b/c of the smooth idle, single balance shaft and its contribution to 50/50 f/r weight distribution - but I'm sure BMW will work around that with a V6.
