Here`s the deal:

Your car is probably putting down right around 150 HP *to the wheels*....not bad, but not earth-shattering, either. You would probably need another 25 or so RWHP to consistently run mid-to-high 6s in the zero-to-sixty sprint, and as previously mentioned by the astute veteran `festers, the most effective solutions would be the combination of a 3.46 rear gear, eBay headers, and a free-flow exhaust system. Since excess weight is MUCH more detrimental to a low-horsepower car, it would behoove you to remove your jack, spare tire, tools, floor mats, CDs, spare change, etc..
All of the above would enhance your quest for a low E.T.

Which brings us to the issue of Driver Input:
Since a *lot* depends on this, you`ll need to play with tire pressures, launch techniques, shift points, etc.

Ultimately, you can *probably* achieve your goal.....

(or you can buy a 330i )

When faced with choosing between two evils, always go with the one you`ve never tried before....
