Every Year the Monsters get more toruqe.. ie.
2001 M 620 dark 36.2 ft. lbs. @ 6,000 RPM
2002 M 620 Dark 39.2 ft. lbs. @ 6,700 RPM
2003 M 620 53.3Nm [email protected] 6750
The extra jump this year seems a lot. And I am sure that it happened with every model. Do people notice it? That sounds quite generous to me, and I was one of those people debating getting a new or used monster, but if new ones have the extra torque, I say.. "OH yeah"

The last year you quoted Nm instead of foot lbs like the other too. That account for the big jump.

Yeah, I'm used to the metric system and working in inches and pounds just drives me nuts.

Funny how the big conversion to the metric system in the US failed when I was in elementary school in the mid-seventies.

Grab any idiot off the street who can't read a children's book let alone a standard tape measure then ask that person to count $50 in mixed coins.

Irony.

Just a note in favour of the inch system,
As a veteren tool and die maker I work in both systems. There is strong data in the metrology industry that backs the inch system due to the particular resolution of a 10,000th of an inch which fits perfectly most precision requirements. Of course millionths are used as well.
With metric we see 100th of a MM as being 4 of the 10,000ths of an inch, so basically one fourth the resolution. Not as usefull because when we go to 1000th of a MM we have a prohibitively expensive gage with limited range, in other words, overkill.
