Performance estimates for 2013 LCI 550i xdrive

What do you think the numbers would look like wit the the upgrade to the 445 hp, 480 lb./ft. torque motor?
I would hope the power advantage as well as the steering update would put it over the S6 in performance.

The 2013 car weighs 4500 pounds and gets 0-60 in 4.7 sec according to BMW.

Look at BMW's specs for other Xdrive cars that already have the new motor. The 6 coupe weighs 4400 and gets 60 in 4.3. The gran coupe weighs 4600 pounds and gets 60 in 4.3. Does anybody think BMW might be pulling these numbers out of the air to satisfy its OCD customers, or does 200 pounds really not make a difference?

Bottom line, it will be quick but it won't be an M. It will certainly be fast enough to get you in a world of trouble.
