future of n55?

any thoughts on the future plans for the n55, given that the new n20 "base engine" is approaching the n55 on performance and that the new development engine for the f80 m3 is going to be a V6?

As it stands now, the n55 can't really match what audi's 3.0sc is doing and it does not outdo their own n20, which is $7K less.

do you think it will be retuned or scrapped completely for a more reliable, single turbo V6 (based off the f80) to stay competitive in the market?
