...that the 0.1 - 0.2 differences are more or less due to all the factors that influence performance (weather, mfg. tolerances, willingness to destroy the clutch, gearbox, and tires, etc).

I would bet that at least one of the car mags will get a '01 3.4 M Roadster in the 4.8 sec region, but will destroy a set of tires doing so.

Speaking of tires, I'll predict that the current M will shorten its 0-60 time by 0.1 secs just by switching from the shitty Dunlops to Michelin Sports.
