0-60 times I am not sure because I am not going to clock myself. But since you have a 540 also, let me ask you this... Mine is a '95 540IA with 63k miles on it. Even in S4 mode it seems sluggish off the line. I turn off the traction control but I still can't get the rear tires to squeal. Is this normal? from 500 to 2500 rpms the car doesn't have much go. I had the engine block checked too and it has been replaced. I am rambling, but a great example is that my wife was with a freind in a mini-van next me me at a stop light. Just for fun we raced. I kid you not, for the first 50 or so feet, that mini-van was a good distance in front of me until I got the rpm's up and then I dusted her. That still doesn't seem right.
