Yeah, I don't understand the 5.0 sec 0-60 time on the "is" car. Inside Line tested a stock 2007 335i and it churned out 4.8 sec. They even dyno'd it and found it had a little more boost than factory but still hard to explain the 4.8 sec result. Their summary seemed to imply BMW was purposely under-reporting performance figures.

BLUF: Those test results for the "is" are somewhat disappointing for the cost.

Here's the article:
