I have a '92 325i (sedan) with a 5 speed with 123,000 miles. It is totally stock, except for synthetic oil, and the ubiquious K&N filter in the stock location.

I do low 8's, 0-60 ; without dropping the clutch or speedshifting...

Check out the BMW's listed here: 0-60 and 1/4 mile times for Stock Vehicles

On this site, they list e36 318's from 8.4 to 10.1 seconds(5 speeds and autos, I imagine).

I hope this helps...

Skaw 5-60 is no where near the same as 0-60.

P.S. 7.3 is the best I've come up with but that's with a slipping ass clutch.

5 - 60 and 0 - 60 times can be within .3 seconds if u have tons of torque and traction, otherwise your 0-60 will be much faster than your 5 - 60.

The times can be a full second or more apart on weak cars like the RX-7 that they literally dump the clutch at 7,000 rpm to get the best 0-60, but have no torque for the (more) real world 5-60 times.

0-60 happens often, like when the gaudy, tricked out Honda beside you wants to impress his date by beating a BMW; you floor it after you start to move because you notice he wants to race after he starts out...

Nice 'low' sound is in your car. Where that 'beep' comes from?

FYI It's not called dropping the clutch. If you drop it, you'll sit there with no traction not going anywhere. When you feather it, or slip it, you launch the car while keeping the motor where it makes the power.

While the above beats the shit out of your clutch, I don't understand why you weren't "speed shifting" What is that anyway? did you row through the gears like a granny to prove a point or something? I didn't realize making good, strong shifts calls for special occasions.. Go make a good run and don't make any excuses goddamnit!


Also that site is extremely full of shit. For the cars I'm familiar with, those times are off by as much as 3 seconds in either direction. Take it with a grain of salt. I advise looking at a magazine article, or a private site with a time slip attached.

ya that beep is so i can do 0-60 (0-100kmph) runs...and also so i dont hit 80 on a 40, which before i would do all the time.....

ya the low sound is from removing the "snorkel" it take about 5 seconds, its not a "DEBAFFLE" but its more of just opening up the intake... ill post a very quick diy once my car gets back, with the tms chip (among other things)
