From what ive seen, being a standard issue bmw tech probably means exactly that - standard issue. The word bmw does not automatically connote excellence in the ecosystem that exists outside the factory door.
Regardless, remember your statement that calling a 525 a slug is an overkill. And you need skill to race and not just horses. If you had enough of that, the car in situ would be less of an issue and i doubt commentary would erupt with such unqualified spontaneity. Any clown can just floor the pedal on a straight stretch and see who wins. And its obtuse to compare a stock vehicle's racing characteristics when its not the flag bearer for that chassis.
