I know I'm splitting hairs here but it's a stat worth splitting hairs over, IMHO.

Or is this a marketing ploy by BMW, whereas much like when the RS4 came out Audi posted 0-60 time of 4.8 but it has actually tested quicker than that. I can see BMW doing the same thing with the "dealer pamphlet" times but when the mags eventually get their hands on the car posting much faster times just to make us all drool even more...
Typical conservative early figure. Be assured it will be in the 4.3-4.5 range.
