Actually one doesn't really need that article. If you go to the website of BMW NA, the Specification of 320i Sedan clearly states that the compression ratio of 320i is 10:1.

However, if you look at the Spec of 320i xDrive, you'll be surprised to find that the compression ratio of 320i xDrive is 11:1.

So, could this be some kind of error, or BMW NA is taking a completely different approach from those in rest of the world?
