dk79, get out to a track so we can see what the real numbers are, those gtimers aren't very accurate for the 1/4 ET or traps but they are pretty decent for 0-60 and 60 ft times.
check out my post in the 0 to 60 time in awd section page 5. I posted a link to real time testing of various devices and g timer is pretty accurate. it was actually 0.1-0.2 sec slower in the 1/4 mile. so the actual numbers will be 12 or below to 1/4 mile.
I will definitely take my car to the drag strip once it opens in april or may.

also the traps are 114.5mph due to very aggressive launch of awd cars. if i wud launch in 2nd gear then my 1/4 will suffer by .1-.2 sec but will gain more mph maybe 116-117.

I had a rwd 335i coupe before this one and with exactly same mods and cobb map I could not do better than 12.5 at 115, also my best 0 to 60 had been 4.1.

awd cars are amazing coz u get the same results everytime.
that's why gtr, rs4, rs6, s6, s7, s8 and now the new e63 amg are awd.
