N55 PE vs N52 PE

Hey guys,

Currently own an 09 323i with the N52 engine, added the BMW performance exhaust recently and I love the sound. But, after modding the engine it's still missing something (horsepower lol) so I'm planning on upgrading to a 335i LCI.

So to those of you who have the N55 PE and especially those who have had it on an N51/52 or have heard it on one is there a difference in sound between the two? If so, how is it different?

Thanks in advance guys, and yes I have searched but only found vids of the PE. Also I'm sure the question will get asked; the reason this matters is because the N52 PE just sounds so damn good it would be a shame to lose that sound on my car.

Thanks man. Yeah they sound fairly close from some of the vids but for the N52 at least it sounded so much better in real life and after breaking in, especially with the gurgles and pops when letting off the throttle. Most mic's just can't seem to pick it up
