330d LCI 0-60mph

Thought I'd make an acceleration video with my 330d, as I want to compare it to my future 328i, since they both produce the same rated output of 245ps. So I thought I'd post it here so you can enjoy it too!
Very easy to see that BMW underrates the 0-60 times (quoted 6.1) but reviewers say they easily get 5.9 in the 6MT like mine. I could've attacked 1st gear a little more - a "chirp" would've been ideal but I didn't want to just spin the power away so aired on the side of caution more! This is on a slight, going to significant incline too.
So, here you go HIT 1080p!


And here is another video I created on the same night just to show how the DTC/DSC system intervenes.

Not bad! I love the acceleration of my 335d, but could honestly do with a little slower (5.5 0-60) for better MPGs.

How do you find your torque converters? I like the fact that when I lift the left pedal up to the top, all power is being transmitted!
I've heard some 335d owners be pissed off that power is being lost through the torque converter which obviously, they have little control of!
Ahhh, I do love my car .

Regarding the previous comment, I did once go on a eco drive (well, speed limit drive) and the car returned 52mpg!! My usual drive gets 44-47 MPG - temperature dependant.

SR123, the torque convertor locks up in higher gears, so there's not as much loss compared to no lock-up. That said, a start in 2nd gear actually results in a quicker 0-60 since the wheels spin less from the standstill than starting in 1st.

Cheers

Ahh brilliant! Yeah I've seen a lot of 335d's doing a standing sprint from 2nd gear.
