ummm, why would a 96 manual be almost a second and a half faster than the 92-95 and 97? that makes no sense at all.

I think they compile these tests fom different sources, which makes the data very unreliable.

I highly doubt a stock 318 can do 0-60 in 8.5 sec.

They should all be in the 10 sec range. The 1.9s could be a tad faster, because of a little bit of added torque when compared to the 1.8.
