It will have bragging rights over the N54, to the tune of 150 horsepower based on this report.

While the legend of the 3 series has been built around inline 6-cylinder engines, I'm very intrigued to learn more about the 4-cylinder mills that are planned for the 3. If it's turbo charged and puts out 250+ horsepower, I don't care how many cylinders it has..
