it takes a little more that an impressive torque band to go down a track. other factors effect 1/4 mile and acceleration times such as weight, gearing in transmission and third member, power band of the motor compared to gearing, and the most important part, the nut behind the wheel. Look at the 335d times from 30-50/50-70, and you will notice that this car is relitively quick compared to it's competition. No hard feelings, and just my .02 cents worth!
