After finding lots of inconsistencies in published performance times, which current BMW do you guys think has the quickest 0-60 time?

Are you guys sure?

I wouldn't necessarily go by the BMW published numbers.

Are there some credible numbers for the Z8 from some independent sources?

I've read many tests here in Germany and these figures are almost matching the factory figures, maybe varies by 0.01 secs or so.

Surprising. Usually testers seem to score way under BMW's numbers.

WTH? How is M5 ahead of M3?

Topaz330xi - When you win the M3 you won't have to worry about the non M 0-60 time! :thumb:

Just looked at the poll. How is the M5 ahead of the M3?

LOL, I remember those threads. I was trying to argue that the xi is significantly faster but no one seemed to believe me. :rolleyes:
