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
European Car
Edmunds.com
etc....

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.

Yours is an auto? Torque... I actually had some respect for you, and it just died right there.

My best friend has a 1991 318iS manual. My other friend has a 1992 525i automatic. All 3 of us raced, and it was 325iS (Manual)> 318iS(Manual) > 525i (Automatic)

Try a race from like a 60 mph roll maybe?

Besides, wasn't this thread originally about a highway race?
