2009 bmw 135i convertible 0-100 4.9 secs true?

i watched this youtube clip last night and in the clip he states that a STOCK bmw does the 0-100 for this car in 5.1 secs but yet when he tested it, its 4.9secs.

Now i would believe this to be true if this car was reviewed in america with the better fuel you guys have but if i go look at www.bmw.co.za they state 5.6secs for the convertible.

what are you guys 0-100 with a convertible?

He says it has the Performance Pack at 1:14 and it's an older car judging by the mirrors and interior condition, it's a 2008-09.

If you are talking km/hr that sounds credible. Motor Trend got 4.7 versus a BMW estimate of 5.1 for the coupe in 2008. The stuff I see on-line is 5.3 for a convertible. 4 tenths less would put you at 4.9.

I think it takes a good driver to beat the factory numbers, however. It may need to be good ambient conditions etc. too.

He means buying one of these to test his true speed. The speedo reads a bit fast.
