For example, I'm sure a pro driver can do better, but I've logged several VBox 0-60 mph (1 foot rollout) runs at 4.4 s with my 6MT E92, and I've run 12.9Xs at 110 mph at the dragstrip.

By way of comparison, C&D's numbers for the E92 M3 were 0-60 mph in 3.9 s and the 1/4 mile in 12.4 s at 114 mph. I don't think ANYONE else has recorded an E92 M3 on stock tires with a 3.9 s 0-60 mph, and that 1/4 mile ET and trap speed seem better than anything else I can recall seeing.

Again, not a dig in any way; the review seems awesome. It's just always better to compare apples to apples.
You left out the other C&D test figures for the E92 M3, which was more realistic.

On the M235i, the other two mags are quite similar.

0-60 4.4
QM 13.0 @ 106.6 mph

0-60 4.5
QM 13.1 @ 107.8 mph
