    Haven't logged into this forum for ages.

    Sold my 323i E90 4 years back. As per the title, I miss the creamy sound of that N52.

    Even modern V6 engines do not sound close to the N52.

    Seems like manufacturers are reserving the Inline 6 engines to their flagship cars, meaning 7 series/S-class? Are there any other modern cars that sound similar to the N52?

    I still have my 323i (11 yrs old). Plan to keep it for a couple more years after I spent to repair oil seal leak, changing air-cond system and absorbers.Enjoyed the engine sound very much especially after I upgraded to BMW Performance Intake System.

    I'm still enjoying my E90 325i LCI M Sport until today. Car is fully stock including rims and tune but considering to get a stage 1 upgrade for it.
