And 0-60 in 4.6 seconds? Was this done uphill or at 7,000 feet elevation?

The only time I ever tried 0-60 times when my M3 was stock was within my first week of ownership. It was early Sept in SoCal and it was almost 100 degrees outside and my car had about 250 miles on the ODO. My first attempt was 4.8 sec bouncing off the fuel cut-off in 1st gear. So I figured I could do better and tried again. This time I short shifted first @ just below 8,000 RPM and logged 4.2 seconds. I'm sure with practice and a cool day I could have achieved high 3-second times easy.

All runs were recorded on my P-Box with 0% slope at sea level.
