well, the 2004+ TL, if I remember correctly, is a mid 14-sec car... The 6-speed manual version gives a bit more performance...

i call bullshit.. especialy in 3rd gear when the TL's extra horsepower comes into play.. he would WALK you! .. he must have stepped on the brakes/stopped accelerating

since I raced newer version of 3.5 maxima and I pulled on him alittle at the top end, I believe him with the TL... bm's are under rated
