E36 S54- 300whp @ 3100lb = 10.3lb/hp

E92- 375whp @ 3800lb =
10.1lb/hp

Not really a huge difference.

My vbox results are not very official, I will compare both cars again later down the road for more of a official comparison (same road, same day, back to back)

Weight? Gearing? I guess they are not factors.
