The results that "the experts" have provided may NOT reflect what your car is capable of doing under your conditions. This list is only meant to be a guideline, NOT THE GOSPEL!!! We are not trying to publish the exact (or even the best) numbers that a specific make and model of car can run every time out of the box. We are only posting this information as a basic guide so that anyone can use it as a base comparison. Every reasonable effort is taken to keep this list as accurate and up to date as is possible....Sorry, if we can not verify the information, we can't post it!
Not trying to be a dick, but not all internet data is corrupt. If I posted that data here, it wasn't because I was flagrantly throwing shit online. If you want other sources, try:
Road and Track
Or risk getting a ticket and do the shit yourself. A chip can help out alot.... don't forget that I mentioned that they didn't specify whether or not the cars are automatic or not. Assume that the 318i was an automatic without a chip, now re-think the possiblilties of a 10sec 0 to 60 mph time.
If you look at the list, my car is listed as having a 0-60 time of 6.9 sec. Do I think it can do that... as an automatic... no. How do I know... I've tried. My friend has my exact car with a manual tranny. Will it do that time stock... pretty damn close.
