about the 97 HP you have to add friection loss , aerodynamic loss , rolling loss
so it will be higher
pu what about the 15 sec
how do you factor any of this?? how did you come up with the magical number 97hp without a dyno , which does not measure drag co. or any sort of friction loss, if any at all slight rolling friction against the dyno wheels, which is very minimal.
honestly it sounds like his car has some serious problems.
well about the 97 HP and 15.2 sec i am using a G-Timer
which i have tested on other cars and it gave very fare resualt except for this 320i
one question is it possible that this power loss is due to the 235/45/17 alloy wheels????
and i notice one thing alse that the air pressure in the tyers i think its less than what it should be!!!!!!!
the g-tech is not accurate at all. All you have to do is think about it, can you really read the cars specs through the cigarette plug? If you take the car downhill the g-tech will tell you the quarter mile was done in like 10 sec. Its crap don't go by it.

Yea, back to the topic.......
digital, can you make a video when doing the 0-60 or 0-100km/h? When it takes really 15 sec there is something wrong with your car.
BTW, how do you do that? Revs to 4500 and clutch up or...? Give me info!
