Hey guys,
So I'm currently the happy owner of a '10 335i e92 6MT. Problem is with family growth I'm getting increased pressure to switch to a sedan. I'm currently at 86k and still absolutely love the car but am entertaining a change but I have some concerns.

I've gone FBO minus meth on my n54 and I love how it pulls, drives, and the overall responsiveness. I'm concerned that jumping into the B58 will be a "step down" in performance (albeit a step up in reliability overall). I've put a lot of time, money, etc into getting my e92 to where it is performance-wise and I'm not really ready to walk that back.

Anyone come from a similar situation? What type of work would I have to do to the B58 to put up similar numbers to what I'm seeing from my n54 on a daily basis (I don't have e85 accessible so just 93 octane DD)? What packages are must-haves for enthusiasts (my e92 was an msport)?
