If you are inferring that Audi is optimistic about their 0-60 times, BMW seems to be doing the same thing with the new E46 cars. Other than C&D, every other car magazine from Road & Track, AutoWeek, Motor Trend, to CAR magazine from the UK have clocked the 328i at 6.8-6.9 seconds.
I have driven my brother's 1999 stock 323i, and I don't believe BMW's 7.1 second claim for one second (BTW, neither does my brother, he knows from first hand experience that the A4 2.8Q is quicker than his car). BMW used to be conservative with their performance claims, but competition has done away with that.
