CA - not sure if you are saying that tounge-in-cheek or you mean it, BUT I too have had the illusion over the years! Just seems to run quicker and smoother when cleaned (outside not inside). As an engineer can't believe a thin layer of dirt on body or wheels would make a difference - but who knows!

Obviously cleaner is better! F1 mechanics are constantly polishing the cars

Can't say I've noticed anything like you mention. Although I've only had my E90 for a couple months. I've just recently dialed it in with the correct JB4 map and E85 ratio. I usually flog it through a few gears at least once a day and it seems to be fairly consistent... FAST!
