Sounds like BMWs are doing more than just trying to smoke you - it appears they are succeeding. 2 things - You never said what kind of transmission you have or how you came up with your 0-60 time. If you picked up a stop watch and pressed start, put it down, accelerated until your speedometer hit 60, then picked up the stopwatch again and press stop, I could see how it might read 15 seconds with the difference in time being spent on handling the stopwatch. Finally, did you really buy a Saab convertible just to race other cars out of the light? aero2lnopsamail.com wrote: > 2 things I'm pissed off about: my 2000 9-3 185bhp convo is quoted as 0-60 > in 7.5 secs in one latest Saab manual but testing it several times I hit > 60 only in about 15 secs.
