Goodluck finding an s2000 though you did pick the best place on the web for one.
Understandable, I just thought what the hell. I'm not even going to win lol! No one wants to buy my car or else I'd have one! And on the topic of bmw forums, those guys will ream Audis, Mercedes, Porsches- whatever, there was a guy who posted a wanted to trade thread for an s2k, i kid you not it was a snobfest. I jumped in and defended the car and got reamed even worse.

According to edmunds.com the 135i vert weighs 3638, the coupe weighs 3373. And the general consensus is a rwd vehicle will lose 15-20% so it should put around 240-255 rwhp on the average dyno. If they are dyno'ing at 280 rwhp then that dyno is off or they are using a lot of corrections. Since both vehicles have a very close power to weight ratio they would be very close (coupe).
No, you're wrong. 135i and 335i's are underrated from the factory, they're actually at around 330 bhp. So they dyno on average 270-280 whp with 270-280 wtq. They also have FAR better aerodynamics and gearing than an S2000. 335i is like a 104-105 mph trap car bone stock, and that's a 3600 lb coupe/sedan.
I know he should of walked me, I place the blame on the driver.
