CanAutM3 has pointed out that there seems to be a slight "problem" with the quoted HP and Torque figures:

As an observation, those numbers cannot be correct.

-Maximum HP between 5500-7200rpm (should be 5700-7200rpm)
-Maximum torque between 1800-5700rpm

The torque and power plateau cannot overlap (5500-5700RPM). Using the assumption of 430hp and 395lb-ft, the transition from the torque plateau to the power plateau should be around 5700RPM.
BMW's dyno chart actually shows that there isn't a overlap of HP and Torque... So, spot on observation
