Acceleration from highway to interstate speed

Hey guys I was looking around and I didn't see anything about this figure. So I was wondering if anyone can tell me how quickly the 335 accelerates from 40- 70. Which in my opinion is just as important as that 0-60 number thanks in advance!

No stop watch either, but I am very happy with the 40-60 and 60-80 speed also. I also like how you can be cruising in 5th getting decent mpg and still have power to pull away if you need it.

My input would be :

**** Extremely rapid ****

(just to add to "darned fast" and "almost too quick"). Sorry OP, know these hyperbolic phrases don't really help, but even I would love to get this info from some reliable source.

However, here is some related info:

The F30 328i does the 40-70 in 4.5 s as per motortrend

The E90 with N54 motor did a 0-60 in 5.1s (which is close to the F30 N55) and a 40-70 in 3.9s (source). I would take a guess that the new 335i does a 40-70 very close to that figure (somewhere between 3.8 to 4 seconds)
