Came across some interesting stats from Autocar magazine (UK) testing the 1980 e12 M535i and 1986 e28 M5. Older car 3.07 final drive & CR 5 speed, e28 3.73 final drive and OD 5 speed.

e12 M535i

Standing quarter, 15.7 sec,
50-70mph 8.0sec (5th) 6.0sec (4th) 3.9sec (3rd)
Top speed 139 mph

e28 M5

Standing quarter, 15.4 sec
50-70mph 8.3sec (5th), 6.3sec (4th) 3.9sec (3rd)
Top speed 147 mph

The old car was very flexible. The 200hp Euro e3 3.0Si was like that too.:smile
