I have my doubts as well, but you never know. Also, I've heard XI's are approx 200lbs heavier. . . that's a lot of weight, making it that much harder to believe.

That said, the "official" 0-60 times are notoriously inaccurate so it could be true.

None of our cars are particularly "fast" by comparison to all the new cars you see driving around. I've always just enjoyed the smooth power curve of the m54 motor and the classic great BMW handling. Not to mention great looks. So, I'm not real concerned with 0-60 times. I almost never floor it anyway.
