Mein Auto: 00 M Roady
The discrepancies in engine output is because the the US market measures in hp and the European/Asia standard is in kilowatts (kW). The power conversion is approx 1 hp = 0.746 kW.

I was a bit confused myself when my dealership gave me a print out of my '00 M Roadster's description and options; the printout stated the engine output was around 179 instead of 240. But thank goodness I paid attention in high school physics many many years ago to realize the possible reason for the difference
