yeah I do enjoy the read- trumpet blowing and dumbing down and feel good articles. But it's the deceptive stuff I don't like. I put my car on the dyno and it put out 175kW at the wheels- This equated to 214kW at the flywheel so the 11kW difference- is it due to bad fuel, high air intake temps (a common problem for FI engines on dynos), normal variation between engines or is it detuned for our poor quality fuel? Not exactly 225kW though.

btw 1q2w3e4r nothing in this world is free esp when BMW has anything to do with it.
