Chevy used to under rate their cars big time about 5 years ago. My car supposedly had 335 hp at the crank from the factory but when dynoed, it put down 330 rwhp with an automatic trans.
Then BMW is guilty and needs to pay up or serve time. How many times on record has the 335 been dynoed well north of 300 hp? The government wouldn't even need a lawyer to win that case.
