I've seen 6.0 sec being claimed in many reviews.
And I've tested mine with a friend beside me using a stopwatch, clocking at just over 6.0something sec. I think that the 6.4 sec quoted above might be a little too far off. Or maybe the sport package has different gear ratios? I'm not sure...but I know the 2001 model has like 8hp more, from 282 to 290.
The manual does it in just under 6 sec.

Does anyone know the actual 0-60 of the 528i Sport Auto, and does it make a difference as the sport versions have a better exhaust system etc. than the SE models.
