It wasn't clear if those numbers were at the wheels or adjusted for drivetrain loss. That would be amazing if it was at the wheels but I have a feeling it isn't.

It would make sense that its at the wheels.

flashed 335/135 make as much if not more so its definitely doable from the factory(and im not sure of the differences between them. Havent bothered to look into it)

Its cool to see but ideally we should wait until owners dyno them because you never know if these cars are ringers or not.

revving out to 7k is likely slower than an earlier shift point.

I just cant get enough of this car, love everything about it, stretched tires front bumper, ZHP knob , everything.

Very confusing numbers thou. Video doesnt say if its flashed or stock. I assumed stock as the ca just came out, but results showed otherwise.

362lb/ft means some Chinese geeks already have a tune for it. Or BMW simply well underrated it

Chinese Geeks? You can get a tune for that right here in Toronto.

Ya you can get tunes for that engine already.

But if you read the link it says the car has an overboost feature...that was likely tapped into for those dyno runs.

Isnt that a standard feature on the car? Or am I missing something?

So what is this article about??? Is it telling us that BMW underrated M coupe for some reason as they rate it at 335bhp and 332lb-ft or is this article telling us that some unknown company has a tune delivering claimed numbers?

I really dont get the point of the article.
