I don't get what BMW was doing. E90-->300 HP. F30 --> 300 HP
To be fair, our 335i's are underrated (at the crank) to begin with. BMW says 300 HP/300 ft-lb torque even. If you look at what our cars put down at the wheels and then make reasonable assumptions about drivetrain loss, our 335i's are more like in the 320-330 HP range (crank).
