"A three-cylinder is mechanically not much different from a six." (BMW's head of drivetrain testing Bernardo Lopez)

Thing is: 6 cyliner engine is naturally balanced, while this half thing needs shafts to get rid of vibration. Im still thinking 3 cyls is a way to reduce production costs, and knowing bmw, we will benifit nothing from it. Im not going to buy anything with this kind of thing under the hud. 3 cyls are for bikes, sorry.
