You must of had a different rear end. It's not possible for the 3.73 to hit 120 kph in 2nd.

on a gertrag 260 the 2nd gear ratio is 2.20:1

With a 3.73 gear and a 6500 RPM redline, your top speed will be 44.79mp/hr or 71km/hr assuming an overall 19inch wheel/tire diameter.

Wow, thanks for the dumbass comment.

FYI, a Z3 (or any BMW) is not a drag racing hole-shot car. Tom did not hook up, but he started catching up before J ran out of gearing.

Go and drive your imaginary 120 kph in second.

doesn't make that much of a difference... only about 17 km/hr more or a top speed of 88 km/h. In order to hit 120km/h in 2nd based on those gearings you would have to rev your engine to 9100 RPM. Not many e30s that I know of can do that.
