Kevin Jost should be consistent with the standards.

190kw is 258.328 hp (metric). The equivalent 64kw should be 85.656 hp (metric) or 84.484 hp (international). He used the latter standards for the per litre comparison.

Usually Stuart Birch covers everything BMW related.

I just like the AE better since it covers more technical related news.

Nice article overall, though...
