What the hell is a "5050 power-to-weight ratio". Please tell me this did not pass BMW marketing approvals.

BMW has another print ad for the sedan that reads:

I asked before I will ask again.
What is it about the taillights that all you people don't like.
yes I had put blacklines on my 335, so the color is not great. But most of you are talking about the design or somthing, what is it.
I actually like the sedan very much just liek I posted before.

Look closer, looks like 50/50 to me. Hard to say for sure though, zoomed in on the pic, it could go either way, but I'm still thinking it says 50/50.
