To be fair, your '14 is probably a stock M157, while mine is probably the most modded NA m156 in the world right now. My 60-130 is a shade under 9 seconds. It's a pity that it isn't a shade over 8 :(

My cars personal best is 4.3 60-100 but that's starting from 2nd gear and winding it to 8000rpm, to give the 60-80 portion a kick start. I wish it was faster man :(
