Don't see where that leaves us with the V-6's being FASTER than the N20, and again offering similar efficiency.

The Jap V-6's that are truly faster are the IS350 and G37, both which are 13.5-13.8 at more like 102mph.
Both the Camry and Accord were faster after 0-60 (FWD vs RWD) and delivered better fuel economy in the particular tests I posted. Here is a review of a manual V6 Accord and it is truly faster than any F30 328 test I have seen to date:

Accord V6 Coupe manual
0-60 5.6
0-100 13.4
1/4 mile 14.0 @ 103 mph

F30 328i manual

0-60 5.6
0-100 14.3
1/4 mile 14.3 @ 100 mph

F30 335i manual

0-60 5.3
0-100 13.0
1/4 mile 13.8 @ 103 mph
