What does 328i/is run in the 1/4 mile stock?

Does anyone know what a 328i/is runs stock in the quarter mile and what it's trap speed is? A link from a reputable source would be perfect too.

I recall 0 - 60 times around 6.2 - 6.4 second range and the q/m in 15 flat @ 92 - 94mph.

you can do better than that if you know how to drive.

most 328's i've seen can do about 14.6 if you know how to launch.

http://www.dragtimes.com/1997-BMW-32...ures-5928.html

[Spare tire removed, Traction control removed, front tires 32 psi, rear tires 26 psi.]

That is a good time for a stock 328.

Feb 99 Road and Track had it at 15.1

~190 Hp & ~3200 does not = mid 14s. Maybe high 14s, low 15s.

OK, a little more HP is freed as they wear.

However it looks like they have ~170 Hp at the wheels for STOCK.

Don't get me wrong, I am not slamming the car. Most cars that make 190~ HP and weigh ~3200lbs do the quarter in mid-low 15s.

All the magazines used to say that a 95 325 pulls a 16 flat. I managed to get 15.2 on my 325 when it was BONE STOCK. Mid 14's in a 328 is very believeable!

Ohhh no! It had an exhaust

I'll tell you right now, the exhaust didn't make the 0.6sec of a difference you are claiming from the magazine test.

Fact is, magazine racing is bad for you.

The reason for which I asked the question is because I have a speeding ticket to dispute and the officer is claiming that I did 83km/h in a 60. I'm trying to determine if that's even possible within 300m (this is from a dead stop) under regular driving (novice shifting) and right when traffic was starting to pick up also. I'm almost certain I will discredit the officer but if I have solid mathematical proof that 83km/h from a dead stop, in traffic, by a novice 5spd driver, over a 300m stretch is not very likely.

I think it is .. I remember I got a similar ticket with my mazda mx6 years ago .. same .. about 300m 83 in a 60 and my car was 126hp (est)

+1.

half the 328 owners put m3 exhausts on their cars, which, although not being as restrictive, are actually heavier.

if an exhaust would shave .6 seconds off the quarter, i'd have one.

0-83 in 300m driving normally? I'm not talkin about full throttle here. Not to mention that my car is 5spd and when i'm not driving it hard, my shifts are slow lol. I was stopped at a light and i could see the cop shooting his radar. I drove regularily, knowing that the limit was 60, I even got in the slow lane so this van behind me could pass. I'm 100% sure he clocked the van and pulled me over. He also didn't show me the radar after I had asked to view it.

Stop it with the "Magazine racing".

Unless BMW understates the HP of their engines, I can't see how a 3200lb car can do the quarter in mid-14s with ~190 HP. The older G35 has 260 HP and weighs in around 3500 and does mid-14s.

I will be at Cayuga in the next few weeks, and would love to run against a stock 328 and see what they run. Anyone up for this?
