That sounds pretty good, why don't the 4cyl's sound like that? Is that a Special sport exhaust? I drove a 4cyl x1 and it sounded like poop...

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Sorry, im not going to bite/believe in a 3cyl. The lowest cyl count i'll go is a 4 cyl engine. In my view the 3cyl belongs in Triumph motorcycle.
I don't understand why they don't improve the 1.2L 1.4L 4 cylinder engines and make them strong/robust/fuel/co2 friendly. Why the 3cyl?

the supercharged 1.5l 3 cylinder we had on our Sea Doo RXP was awesome (215hp) so I know it can be done. BMW just offered further proof.
