this... and if you really think about it it started before, the E39 540 and E38 740 were 4.4l V8s.

The F30 328 and F10 520 are both 2.0 4s.
The E90 328 was actually a 3.0 if you all recall.

The new 4 banger makes more power and is more fuel efficient than the N/A 6 it replaces.

As for the F10 being bolted together, the E60 was where it started, thats how they got the shell to be lighter then the E39.
