Yes, but why would they plan to MISS their target? BMW called their shot pretty late in development, missing the target would be a little embarrassing. Maybe it's just semantics, but I think they could have said they're using the e46 as a benchmark. They chose the word "target" instead.

This is true, but the e46's 17 hp increase over the (non-neutered) e36 was pretty damn trivial if you ask me.
