Depending on what tire you go with you could gain or lose MPH. If you upgrade to a stickier and/or wider street tire you might gain a little due to better grip and a reduction in tirespin. Whereas if you switch to a DR you'll accelerate faster which will result in a lower trap speed because you traverse the same distance faster, but with the same power.

Good times though for being on runflats

are the axle and tranny gear ratios in the 6AT 135i the same as the 335i sedan 6AT? I'm wondering how with essentially the same mods I'm 3/10 of a second slower in the 60'...
