Source? Not saying you're wrong, would just like a link.
I think 320-330 makes a lot of sense because

1) 340-360 makes the F30 only 60-80 off the F80
2)BMW has never been known to try to outgun HP ratings of other competitors. With the C400 and S4 at about 330 I doubt BMW is trying to beat these hp ratings. I surmise that they would prefer a number south of these competitors numbers
3) no one is complaining about the performance of the N55 at 300hp, I would guess 310hp. They will probably still offer PPK to get you to around 350hp
