In Reply to: Official data- BMW is 7.1 sec, A4 2.8Q is 7.4 posted by FS on December 30, 1998 at 20:26:10:

If you are talking official factory claims, both Audi and BMW claim that these cars do 0-60 in 7.1 seconds. The 7.4 seconds comes from Car & Driver. Well, if you are going to quote magazines, I have seen several magaine tests where the 328i did 0-60 in 6.8-6.9 seconds, not the BMW claim of 6.6 seconds. I have yet to see a major magazine do a road test of the 323i. I have a nagging suspicion that the 7.1 seconds is overly optimistic.
