I have a T3 Auto since August 2020 and I have few complaints. It's certainly not underpowered, acceleration from standstill more than enough for me, overtaking on motorways not a problem at all. I wish it were more refined and quiet though. Not a big problem.

Oh and fuel consumption in city traffic is really high. Might be a concern, especially if you do mostly short distances. Mine does not have the mild hybrid tech, so newer models might be a bit better on that front. Economy on country roads and motorways are fine. Pretty good actually.

The BMW M12 turbo F1 engine of the eighties made 1400 bhp in qualifying trim. Being 1.5 litres it equated to 933 bhp per litre.
