Mein Auto: 2013 BMW 550i
That's the BMW international site. They base hp on kw. Conversion of 300 kw = 407 hp for the 550. Maybe the U.S. rounds it to nearest 100th so 400hp. That same site states the 535 has 306 hp while US specs it at 300 hp. Difference is so minimal. It's just how a particular region wants to market it. Maybe someone more technical on engine specs can chip in their 2 cents.
