No way in hell you run that test with one boosted motor vs. the remaining having naturally aspirated ones - especially at 12K elevation.

So, lets not get ahead of ourselves and claim C&D has the besting testing methodology.
Sorry Wesleyan, it's not even a C&D test. It clearly shows Automobile magazine and Motortrend on top of the video. And the point of the test IS to show the benefits of turbo at high altitude.

Bah! Idiot me - my apologies for the inaccurate post. It has been deleted.

Mein Auto: '04 E55, '04 Sienna,
Why is this a surprise.

I test drove the F10 550i and was very disappointed. The steering response is a disaster. The steering response is artificial. It reminds me of a lexus rather than BMW. F10 drove like a whale compare to the E60 M5. Felt bulky and reluctant.

F10 has become too mainstream. If i wanted a car that rides and handled like a lexus, i would have bought a lexus. BMW really really messed it up.

It's more like a Benz then a Lexus. I own a Lexus LS. You don't know what cloud commuting/understeer and body roll is until you've owned a Lexus.
