i'd love it if MT was right but i think we should wait for a larger sample to confirm this.
Exact same thing happened with the E90. Car mags got about 1/2 second less than the BMW published number.

I noticed in the video he is torque braking the auto trans to about 2k RPM at launch. I wonder if BMW is testing without doing that?
