Hey guys, I don't know if this topic has been raised before, but i have noticed that US BMW's and Eurpean/Australian BMW's have different HP/KW quotes.
Example: 330Ci in US has 225HP, whereas in Europe and OZ, it is quoted as 231HP.
Is this true?, and why is that so? also, does this affect the overall performance, as in 0-100km/h or 1/4mile?
One more thing, since the revised 3-series coupe last yr, with the 6-speed box in the 330Ci, does that give better acceleration performance compared to the previous 330Ci with a 5-speed?
