Have you driven/accelerated an ATS 3.6 and a 335i from a standstill? I have. I'm not re-posting numbers from a magazine.

Here are some numbers I'll re-post - 274 (267 according to C&D) lb-ft tq at 4,800 rpms, 321 hp at 6,800 rpms for the ATS 3.6. My little 330i N52 makes its max 220 lb-ft tq at 2,750 rpms.

Then and Than are different words and they are not interchangeable.
