Uh, have you checked the thread you started the other day? I'm not trying to be a dick but there are answers to that question in that thread. See post 19 in particular.

And there's a response to the "will I be getting smoked by 335s" question as well as some advice on pricing. Pretty good input if you ask me.

There's another similar thread with that same question answered here as well. Several posts in that thread answer directly or point to external sites such as Edmund's with answers on the 0-60.

If these don't give what you're looking for then help us out with what "real 0-60" means and I'm sure someone will answer.

About .5 seconds slower than a coupe.


But you'll do it with more style

Who cares? If you got the cab, you're posing anyway.

E93 does not have the ZCP option, so it actually only goes 59 mph. It's quite fast though, for what is really just a glorified tanning bed on wheels. You don't want to go any faster than that anyway - you won't be able to hear all the props and propositions from the ladies.

On the plus side, my Jersey shore bronze is looking extra choice right about now.

If you get the Convertible, you shouldn't be worried about the weight and 0-60 time.

Not more than 5 i suppose. It won't take a faction of the second to reach that speed. Depends on the quality of your engine.

Seriously, I hope you were just being flip - I have no idea what you are saying.

Mine does 0-60 in 2.5 seconds. Really. I swear. I have a special individual option package. It also came with a flux capacitor.
