Presumably it has the same ICE as in my 530e but tuned higher. What struck me is how rough the engine seems compared to my car.
I thought the idea of loaner is to give you a "better" car, so you're tempted...

While I don't think I ever got a "better" car this is the worst loaner that I ever got. They said it was all they had left and I didn't have an advance appointment (I called my SA and she said she checked and found that they had a loaner and to come on in). So I guess I can't complain. If, for some reason they will be keeping my car for an extended period, I will try to get it replaced (my dealership is close to my house so it is no big deal for me to run over there).

Recalls on 2018 and 2019 Vechiles

Took both of my 2018 M550i for recall and I was told they had no record the vehicle was recalled. My cousin took her 2018 540i for the same recall and she was told there was no recall. 2 different dealerships. They also told me they had no software or firmware updates available. Has anyone experienced the same? Thank you!

I just checked all 3 VINs and it show "0" recall. Then why would they say recalls on all 2018 through 2020?
