Say what you will but I think that for enthusiasts, the new four-cylinder engine that BMW has put out is a failure.
Sure, it gets fantastic MPG and it is paired up with a fast and slick-shifting gearbox. Those things are fantastic.
But my God it sounds terrible. For your everyday consumer, it's great but for those that bleed oil, I think it's safe to say it's a letdown. From the inside to the outside it just does not capture that charm of BMW engines rocketing to the redline.
So now the conversation has shifted to BMW's all-new, three-cylinder powerplant. Will it finally turn things around with a sexy soundtrack OR will it be another Honda-like sounding motor?
The answer lies below, my friends.
Once you give the video a listen, let us know: Does BMW's all-new, three-cylinder engine sound like a STUD or a DUD?
