The F30 also seems quieter at first, but the racket transmitted from front-end bumps is surprising, and at highway speeds, the sunroof produces too much wind noise to leave open. Bore is 84 mm 3. This means when you're loafing along at 1700rpm with the throttle barely cracked open, then floor it, the engine reaches maximum torque almost immediately and off you scoot--which is generally what people want. Much more simple wheel fitment and many more choices. That just doesn't happen in the F30.
It is physically difficult to move that much air through a tiny turbocharger fast enough to feed the engine. Those of us with less power need to work our torque band to the max, shifting at the top of the torque band, not at redline. And that engine set the benchmark. Even though these two motors had slightly different peak outputs, their curves looked largely the same. The S52 has a redline of 7,000 rpm while the M52 has a 6,500 rpm redline. What I meant earlier is that you may be thinking you are shifting at redline but if your reaction time is just a little slow, i. While horsepower is up only marginally-from 189 to 190-the real difference the 2.
It keeps coming back to needing dyno or road test data. Making the 328i even more attractive is the fact that base prices have stayed relatively in line with last year's models. Any f30 328i owner here tried what I mentioned and experienced the same? If I buy a 328i, after it's broken in I will consider dynoing it if no other data have become available by then. So, I plan to bow out of this issue. You do not acquire ownership rights to any content, document or other materials viewed through the site. The bigger the turbo, the longer it takes to reach full boost pressure from idle.
And I didn't event try 2nd to 3rd gear, since the drop really bothers me. The sum total of these modifications is an inline-six that, besides offering a welcome dose of oomph, is smooth and civilized in most driving situations. The function and purpose of Torque Converters. In 2007, we took an E85-chassis Z4 3. Notice how the power curve red plot falls off.

Once the Nikasil coating was determined to be the cause of the problem, steel cylinder liners were used instead of the Nikasil coating. I will say though, driving both the 335 and the 328, i'm not missing the extra power. Not all is lost on this though. About chassis details responsible for road holding, handling behaviour and ride confort, the F30 3 Series Sedan has McPherson struts. To what end that extra space? Our decision was unanimous: We liked the old car better, if only by a slight margin. Now that is a good post.
Then again, we piled four six-footers into the E90, and each was comfortable enough to spend an hour or two in the car. Little hard to understand how the 328i could do 0-60 in 6. This equates to f aster turbo spool up less turbocharger lag and better throttle response. I obviously split the difference with a 135i, but it's because I've had an e90 335 and it's hard to go back once you've had that engine. Both of our test cars have manual transmissions, because duh. Long story short, the 2.
The N20 engine produces its peak torque from 1250-4800rpm and peak power output from 5000-6000rpm. I would love to know! Pretty impressive gas mileage as well. Now to my final opinion on what you should get. In addition, on a recent test drive in Germany, the 328i remained confidently stable and controlled during autobahn blitzes right up to its electronically limited 124-mph top speed. The bore is 84 mm 3. The commercial copying, redistribution, use or publication by you of any such matters or any part of this site is strictly prohibited. It is physically difficult to move that much air through a tiny turbocharger fast enough to feed the engine.
I think it has to do with that gearbox. For the 07 328i, 0-60 is 6. That car used one of the most powerful versions of the N52B30 3. The bigger the turbo, the longer it takes to reach full boost pressure from idle. It has a bore of 84 mm 3.
The thing to do here is to find a good independent shop that is trustworthy and charges a fair price. Dealership offers a life time warranty on any and all electrical problems. My sister also leased a 2011 E90 328i before moving to the F80, so I can give you some ideas on the car. But the less rational enthusiast side says go for the 335. The redline remained at 6,500 rpm. In real-world driving, we observed a gain of less than 1. Shifting after 6500 rpm therefore would produce slower acceleration times.
