We spend a lot of time here gnashing our teeth over 0-60 times but what's relevant for most of us in the real world is the feel we get in the seat of our pants. Nothing more.
Exactly! And I find my F30 way faster than my ex F10(both N55), maybe it's the MT box and off course the weight.

Did 200kmh already(125mph) an hour ago(no or almost no traffic) in 6th from 80mph---> 125. It's quick.

It's so much more torquey than that F10. Wow.
