Thanks I wonder if because it was a press car there were mods made that BMW does not want published?

I'm sure it's something like that , maybe there was a chip or other mods.

More likely is that the cars were validated prior to release. It's standard practice to run conformity of performance checks for the press fleet.

Btw, this is all I get:

what do you think the shorter final drive ratio would be? I think the standard touring axle ratio was 3.15

Yes, Sir, press or show cars were specifically 'prepared' before being released to the show or the 'crowd of motor journalists'.
This does normally include a special engine performance check and so on... and it is indeed kept confidential...
what it is that is done to any specific 'press- or show car' differs from car to car... and although NOT a researchers
favourite, it is understandable.... transparency obviously has a limit...

has apparently a long list of options etc. but as far as I can see it is not an official factory press- or show car
BUT it can of course have been just used by the dealer as a show car - special dealer order cars are normally not
specificallly identified as such -

Thank you for the information I thought that maybe that was the case. I did find this line on one of the vin decoders I tried.
