Will someone please post real world N55 performance numbers!?! Dyno/1/4 mile/0-60mph

I need to know as soon as possible so that I can weigh my options for my next car. N55 has been showing a lot of promise lately, so I might end up extending my lease for a month or two to wait for the verdict. I hope the N55 is underrated like the n54.

By the way I put this post up to try and intice the first batch of n55 owners to do some independent tests as soon as they get their cars. I know it might take a while.

I know but aren't deliveries about 1-2 weeks away? Thought I might get lucky if I posted early.

There's a Car and Driver review of the X5 with the N55 that was just published. They don't say much about the engine except that it feels more "raw" than the N54. Interesting...

x5 is too heavy for the engine to really matter...

Will you please give us some feedback then? Have you driven an N54 e92 to know how it compares? And if so, Which engine do you enjoy more? Thanks

Must be why several dealerships' websites have NO 335 coupes available....

good luck and congrats, as a fan I'd like to see the N55's as being the answer to all the problems with the N54 (though I hope they can fix the N54's woes)...
