I'd rather have the N55.
Since when does BMW only offer one engine? Never, there will be a higher output 6 cylinder, the N55 more than likely with a few additional tweaks.
The 4 cylinder will replace the N52- the N52 will have served a full generation by then.
What is not stated here is that the reason for this shift is all about efficiency and emissions. Times are changing and some people better realize that.
