New E90 M3 dyno test results from RRI

As many of you know RRI tested an 07 coupe earlier:

http://www.rri.se/popup/performanceg...p?ChartsID=768

They just posted some new charts for an 08 sedan:

http://www.rri.se/popup/performanceg...p?ChartsID=793

As expected, they are inline with the earlier coupe results.

They correct for temp and pressure differences according to ISO 1585 standards. If you download the detailed sheets, you can see the correction factors at each rpm for each test. That's why I like their published results; it allows one to compare across brands/models etc. by going to one website.

Well, I was about to call repost on myself, but then realize that was posted under the Media forum, so I'm OK I think?

South, does RON 98 have a translation to octane rating? If so, what would this be?

Yes, 98 octane. That's also the recommended fuel for the M3 in Europe.
