Look at the N63... look at when it was updated. Look at the N54, look at when it was beginning its phase out. There is a change coming
wow; thx. for the ultra-rapid response!! let me push my luck a little and ask this: if i'm in the market for a 4_ _ or 2_ _ when they're released in a year or so, is it likely that they will have the next-gen 6cyl. engines? feel free to tell me to shut up anytime, lol.
Both 2 series and 4 series will come with a 6 cylinder. Most likely the same N55 found on current 335i and rumored to have a higher output engine for the rumored 440i. 240i? Maybe but not as likely as an M2
