I drove the N20...what it lacks in refinement, it more than makes up for it with the performance(especially the torque wow!) and efficiency. The N52 was a thing of beauty. But if you drove the car not knowing it was the N20, i dont think you would realize its a 4banger. The torque was really strong.
