I guess you have not read what I wrote
, moment here has nothing to do with the notion of time...
To be more precise, power is force applied on a distance over time; or in the polar referential: torque applied
on rotations over time.

ahh is it some misc 'acceleration value'?
but yes, the 1M being a bit beefier in the midrange shifts a bit sooner than totally stock 135i's.... though it's still a case by case basis.. N54 to N54, you can have shift points varying up to 500rpm depending on the gear.

The graph I posted shows wheel torque (flywheel torque multiplied by the gear ratios) vs road speed for each gear (I should have included a legend, my bad). When the line of a gear crosses the line of the next gear, it is the optimal shift point. If the lines do not cross, it implies a shift at redline. Since some of the lines do cross, it means that those gears need to be shifted before redline. If you want the RPM shift points, you need to back calculate the RPM based on the road speed.
For the 1M, this means
12 68 km/h > 7000 RPM
23 121 km/h > 7000 RPM
34 173 km/h > 6700 RPM
45 221 km/h > 6525 RPM
56 259 km/h > 6475 RPM
This is the power curve I used:
