Divide the new figure of 270BHP, at the wheels, by 0.776 ( to allow for the drivetrain losses) give a flywheel figure of just under 348BHP!!!!!

I am sure thats how you would work it out - correct me if Im wrong??
I wasnt working it out to 286bhp. I was doing it to 15% losses which many people agree is approx the right figure for an auto car. whereas manuals are 12% (Remember, we dont know what autos make as we cant get a flywheel figure, so using 286bhp is a little academic, 222bhp at the wheels has been accurately measured)

Most 335is make 270at the wheels anyway, so your suggesting there all from the factory 348bhp, i dont think so... most are approx 310-315bhp at the fly!
