If it doesn't need to rev as high to make the power, then why is that a downside? Because racecar?
If anything it's an upside; lower rpm engines tend to have less stress.
And that 6cyl sounds amazing when done right. I don't think it can be helped that there's very few exhaust manufacturers that know what they're doing that sell parts for the 3 series. And seriously, the E46 M3 sounded like ASS. One of the worst sounding engines every made stock.
