    As some of you know BimmerBoost attempted to do a giveaway previously with Rob Beck of RB Turbo which did not work out due to prematurely giving away turbos that were not in stock or ready to ship. Things unfortunately did not go as planned and timelines did not align. This left me feeling bad that Rob Beck needlessly took flack when he didn't do anything wrong and only tried to help. If anything, BimmerBoost.com was responsible for pushing to give away turbos too early and Rob should not be forced to adhere to a schedule that is not his own. I contacted Rob and asked him if we could try this again to make things right and celebrate the holidays in a positive fashion with our members. What better gift could there be than free upgraded N54 turbos? This time around the turbos are in stock and ready to go so when the holiday contest is over they will be ready to ship. 2016 has been a tough year for many of us and I simply want to thank the members here, BMW enthusiasts, our lurkers, and our vendors for sticking together through tough times. What we are giving away is $3000 toward any turbos or products in the 2017 RB Turbo catalog. Spend it however you like! I wish you all the best going into an uncertain 2017. I hope it is a prosperous year for you and your families. There is much more to life than the forums and cars but this place is a fun break from reality from time to time. You all make a real difference in my life and I wish to repay the favor. We're celebrating six years of BimmerBoost, who truly thought we'd get this far? Happy Holidays to you and your families! Contest Details: How to enter: Post in this thread that you wish to enter. Requirements: Minimum 10 rep points to enter. How to gain entries: Every rep point you gain from your time of entry qualifies as one raffle entry. You gain rep points by posting and creating threads. Example: You have 10 rep points at the time of entry. You have 20 rep points after the contest is over. 20 - 10 = 10 so you have 10 entries in the raffle. The more you post and contribute the better your odds of winning. There is no limit on how many entries you can gain. Contest dates: 12/3/2016 - 1/16/2016 The winner can choose from anything in the RB catalog below including Super RB EVO's with either option A, B, or C. Any other options will have to be paid by the winner along with shipping. First place: $3000 RB Turbo credit Second place: $400 BMS store credit Third place: Autographed picture of my dog: *BimmerBoost reserves the right to disqualify any contestant for any reason including cheating or multiple screen names.

    2.0 liter turbo I4 vs. 3.0 liter twin turbo I6 and the four-cylinder comes out on top? Yep. To be fair, the MKVII Golf R has a turbo upgrade courtesy of APR and their Stage III+ kit while the BMW S55 3.0 liter I6 is on the factory turbos but the Golf also has an engine 2/3 the size. The F80 M3 is tuned with a BMW JB4 piggyback but what supporting mods it has or what map it is running is unknown. This is the Golf R mod list: APR Stage 3+ Kit APR ECU + TCU Tune APR Intake APR Intercooler Milltek Valved Catback System USP Cool Flow Filter Housing USP Cool Flow DSG Filter Housing USP High Flow Turbo Inlet Hose Spulen Catch Can KW V3 Coilovers Vossen VFS1 P3 VIDI Gauge The all wheel drive dual clutch Golf R getting the better elapsed time here is no surprise. However, it also traps higher than the M3 as well. Certainly impressive performance by the Golf. Video courtesy of USP Motorsports: https://www.youtube.com/uspmotorsports

    Whoa. This turbo E30 belongs to BimmerBoost member @Nisse Järnet and a hell of an E30 it is. Let's start with it being an all wheel drive 325ix. Yes, ix, not xi. That means it can put down the power from the turbocharged and built M50B28 inline-6. How much power? Good question. What we know is it is not at full boost. It doesn't need it. The GT3 RS gets a jump but the 325 flies by at higher speeds as if the GT3 RS is standing still. The 991 GT3 RS is obviously built for the track but it is no slouch in a straight line. Once this Bavarian hot rod spools though, game over. Modifications on the BMW are: M50B28 fully built, PT6765 turbo, Autronic SM4 ECU, active 4WD.

    You're here because you love horsepower. Going fast is what we're about. There is going fast and being reckless however. 300+ kph (over 186 miles per hour) on public streets and in a turn while dodging traffic easily qualifies as reckless. Cars of course offer more protection but also can inflict more damage on innocent bystanders. However you might feel a couple of these guys paid the ultimate price for taking it too far on public streets. It never hurts to offer up a reminder that there are consequences to insane speed.

    These Tesla drag race videos are getting kind of boring especially when they constantly show the Tesla in the best light possible. Rear wheel drive competition on street rubber of course will struggle against the all electric all wheel drive torque monster. Fortunately this time around we see a car that is well known for its off the line prowess, the 911 Turbo. This is a GIAC tuned 997.2 model with bolt ons. The Porsche rips the Tesla off the line but the Model S hangs in pretty well. The result is a quicker and faster 10.503 @ 127.93 from the Porsche and 10.861 @ 121.77 from the Tesla. What is important to note is that the 911 Turbo needs to be modified to get the win here and in 1500+ density altitude it will suffer a drop off in performance whereas the Tesla which is not relying on air will not.

    The BMW F87 M2 obviously is getting a lot of aftermarket attention and rightfully so as it is supposed to be the lightest track car in the BMW M lineup. It is not exactly light but for track junkies who want more downforce RevoZport may have them covered with their upcoming Raze M2 aero kit. Now, it's becoming kind of a nuisance when companies continue to release renderings instead of actual pictures of their products. Does this look good? Yes, it sure does. It also isn't real. Where are the pictures of the real thing? RevoZport states they will offer an adjustable front lip, adjustable wing, and optional canards: Ok, very cool. How much downforce do these pieces add? How are they being tested? Do they have a windtunnel? Is it all just simulation? Is this for looks or actual track performance? The press release leaves a lot to be desired as far as answering these questions. In 2012, RevoZport introduced the first ever complete aero and performance kit for the BMW 1M at SEMA. The program was a great success and highly regarded as one of the best designed aftermarket upgrade for the BMW 1M. The design shaved 60kg of weight through by replacing some panels with carbon fibre ones and changing the exhaust into titanium. The performance was staggering on track. Today, the BMW M2 (F87) is faster, has wider track-width and more power, so naturally it needs a mean looking aerokit to live up to its performance. This time RevoZport took most of the elements from its predecessor and added even more. At the front, we have a 3 way adjustable front splitter (Street, Sport and Track setup) with cooling vents routing cold air directly to the brake discs. The canards around the front bumper vents area ram more air to the oil cooler and keeps the engine cool at all times while the vented hood is proven to extract hot air directly from the radiator. All of which are designed for the purpose of keeping the motor at its optimum temperature during hard driving. On the side, the door sills extends the front part of the rear wheel arch to give that muscular fender-flare look that reminiscence a Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6. Towards the back, you will see the GT spoiler designed with a swan neck mount which from the CFD (Computer fluid dynamics) shows that the support mounted from the top of the spoiler blade actually produce better downforce than from the bottom. Finally, the vented diffuser is designed not only to provide better ground effect but also can help vent the heat from the exhaust muffler.

    Road and Track is wrong here. Not that the NSX is not a good car but is it really the best performance car of 2017? Absolutely not. As we saw last month the NSX struggles to top the aging (and cheaper) Nissan GTR. The NSX just is not what the original was. At 3868 pounds the NSX is heavier than every car in this comparison except for the Mercedes-AMG C63 S and the Nissan GT-R Nismo: It's as tested price is the highest of the entire group. For the most money you expect more than it delivers. It isn't the quickest. It isn't the most powerful. It isn't the lightest. It isn't the most involving. It just is not the best performance car out of this group for the money. You know what car is? The Corvette Grand Sport. It has the lowest starting price out of every car on the list and where does it end up when they test them around the track? In second place, ahead of the NSX. I don't care what fancy technology the NSX has the fact the Grand Sport has less power and outperforms it around the track with a rear wheel drive layout at a fraction of the cost puts it above everyone else. The car isn't' a hybrid. It doesn't have a dual clutch transmission. It doesn't even use turbos. What Chevrolet did with the Grand Sport is jaw dropping from a performance perspective which is what this comparison is supposed to be about. There are of course other cars included. The M4 GTS is just an abject failure. What is the point of continuing to talk about it? The only way the M4 GTS is beating other performance cars in your garage is if you don't have any other modern performance cars in your garage. The Mercedes-AMG C63 S is uncomfortably close to it despite being much heavier (and much cheaper). The R8 V10 Plus is grouped in with the top 5 and after that point there is distinct separation. The Evora is praised for its handling and feedback but you can't have a performance car of the year that performs worse than the entire field. It just can't keep up. Look at these results: The NSX and the GT-R are basically neck and neck. Yet, both are behind the Corvette. The Porsche 911 Turbo S is out front and frankly deserves the win more than the NSX does. It's quicker, faster, lighter, and it handles better. It even manages a better 0-60 without a hybrid drivetrain. Sometime simpler is just better in a performance environment as the Corvette and the 911 Turbo show. The NSX does not deserve this win. When you read Road and Track's reasoning it feels more like they are picking the NSX to defend the next generation of sports cars which will increasingly incorporate hybrid technology. We aren't there yet. This is about right now. Right now, there are better performance cars on the market than the NSX. Period.

    This may be the best carbon fiber rim on the market if you take into account weight, pricing, and strength. A couple months back BoostAddict posted about the lightest carbon fiber wheels on the market from a company named ESE Carbon. We have yet to see anyone run their wheels or any independent testing. Also, there are concerns about strength with a full carbon fiber rim. Forgeline and Emergent are taking a bit of a different approach. The barrel is carbon fiber from Emergent but Forgeline provides their forged wheel expertise as the center is metal, not carbon fiber. Plus, with a name like Forgeline Motorsports involved you know these wheels are the real deal and can withstand the rigors of motorsport let alone street driving. The rims will be available in two styles in 20 and 21 inch fitments. The question is, how much money? Also, what do they weigh? These are rather important details that are omitted. Either way, more carbon wheel options are coming onto the market and that is a good thing for all enthusiasts. FORGELINE ANNOUNCES NEW CARBON+FORGED WHEELS WITH EMERGENT CARBON RIMS New Carbon+Forged Series wheels offer unparalleled style and performance. DAYTON, Ohio - Racing wheel expert Forgeline Motorsports has entered an exciting new partnership with EMERGENT(tm) Carbon Wheels and launched its Carbon+Forged Series, a new line of two-piece carbon fiber and forged aluminum ultra-high performance wheels. The company that is known for its unyielding commitment to technology and performance innovation is taking another leap forward with the new wheel line that combines weight-optimized CNC machined forged aluminum centers with Emergent's revolutionary proprietary carbon fiber barrels. The innovative made-to-order wheel series delivers the ultimate in technological advancement, exclusive styling and unprecedented lightweight performance. Forgeline's Carbon+Forged wheels are engineered to an entirely new set of appearance and performance standards, featuring super lightweight carbon fiber barrels that utilize a high-density carbon fiber bundle, a high-clarity resin system and an unusually large carbon weave pattern. These high-tech characteristics create rims that are visually distinctive and 42% lighter than equivalent aluminum wheels. The weight reduction is achieved in the wheel's most critical outer perimeter where the greatest reduction in unwanted inertia is achieved for real-world improvements in acceleration, braking, cornering, ride quality, NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness), driver/passenger comfort and fuel economy. The superior quality carbon fiber barrels of Forgeline's Carbon+Forged wheels are engineered and tested to deliver industry-leading levels of fatigue strength, impact and damage resistance and deflection stiffness. Tested by an independent automotive industry laboratory, they have proven to be incredibly strong and robust, exceeding all existing SAE and TUV test specifications and surpassing the AK-LH 08 Radial Impact Test standard. The first wheels to be released from Forgeline's new Carbon+Forged Series are the lightweight racing-inspired CF201 (featuring a five V-spoke design and aggressive I-beam machining details) and the style-conscious CF202 (featuring a unique directional split-5 spoke design). Available in 20- and 21-inch fitments, both wheels are uniquely engineered for exclusive modern sports cars, including the Corvette Z06, Ferrari 458/488, Audi R8, Acura NSX, Lamborghini Huracan/Aventedor, Porsche 918/GT3/GT3RS, as well as Aston Martin, McLaren, Mercedes, and BMW models. The new Carbon+Forged wheels and other Forgeline wheels are available through a nationwide network of Forgeline partners. For more information, visit forgeline.com or call 1-800-886-0093.

    Who saw this coming? The most interesting part of the 2016 Formula 1 season was watching Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton duke it out for the driver's championship. Rosberg ended up winning but it was a battle until the very end. Perhaps that battle drained Rosberg's energy? His statement is as follows: Rosberg is still under contract and signed a two year extension recently. He is leaving a lot of money on the table but he already has too much money to care. The rivalry with Lewis Hamilton seems to have taken its toll: He retires on top. Not a bad way to go out. The question now is who will challenge Hamilton?

    ESS-Tuning announced work on their supercharger solution for the M156 V8 a long time ago. Their kit underwent several revisions going from a TVS roots blower now to a twin screw unit. It was officially announced as available at the end of July. Since then BenzBoost has been waiting for results and now we have have some to share. This W204 C63 AMG sedan picked up 178 horsepower at the wheels and 161 lb-ft of torque at the wheels: That certainly is a solid peak power and torque increase but what is up with the torque curve from 3100 to 4800 rpm? There is a large dip that either the tuner or ESS-Tuning will need to explain. A positive displacement blower should not have that kind of torque dip in the mid-range. The peak numbers obviously are not as high as the competition but keep in mind this is a Mustang dyno which is reading conservatively as the baseline figures show. Dynojet numbers no doubt will come soon.

    Chevrolet is bringing out the big guns with the C7 generation ZR1 Corvette. This is going to be the highest performance C7 and highest performance Corvette of all time. With the way the Grand Sport is performing the ZR1 is likely shooting for nothing less than being the best performance car on the market at any price point. The fact it will punch well above its weight is just a huge bonus. Those aerodynamics you see including the huge rear wing are there for performance on the track. Chevy listened to complaints about Z06 traction. They also likely listened to complaints about the motor. They won't admit it but their small blower choice was a mistake. They have to spin it way too hard generating too much heat and while it provides great torque and response down low it does not have much a top end punch. Plus, the torque down low only complicates traction issues. Will get it the rumored LT5 twin turbo V8? Time will tell. Expect this to be the baddest Corvette ever made.

    Details on the BMW CS model line BimmerBoost posted about yesterday are slowly starting to come out. The latest rumor on the block is that the F87 M2 CS will get a detuned version of the S55 engine under the hood of the BMW F80 M3 and F82 M4. Right now the M2 utilizes an N55B30T0 which is basically an S55 and N55 hybrid. It has the S55 closed deck block but the N55 turbocharger making for a neutered car with a weak top end. An S55 would certainly give the M2 a kick in the pants and provide far more tuning headroom especially if the turbos carry over. The detuning may be by software alone with how BMW likes to cut costs these days. This is all just a rumor based on nothing concrete at the moment. BMW sites are just throwing this up to get hits. It may prove true, it may not, but something is brewing with these CS models.

    You likely know about the legal action Weistec is bringing against Dime R&D. While the legal wheels churn plenty of shady nonsense is going on behind the scenes. Recently, Dime was caught using a Weistec dynograph for promotion of their products. Well, here we go again. The W205 C63 AMG S you see in the picture with number 812 is running the Weistec W.3 M177 turbo system. Dime decided to promote the car as their own saying it has a full Dime upgrade system. It doesn't. As you can see in the screencap BS was quickly called and Dime deleted the upload. Well, not before it was saved. Why would anyone do something so stupid when the owner clearly would see it? Desperation? Desire for attention? Doing something so blatantly misleading without any regard for the truth sure makes you wonder. Here is what the car actually ran with the Weistec parts: Integrity still matters to some people.

    The fallout from the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal continues as countries launch their own probes into various manufacturers. Volkswagen settled in the US but the Porsche parent company is running into trouble in South Korea now along with BMW and Nissan. So what is happening in South Korea? This: South Korea will likely get some money in fines and the companies will stop selling the affected models that the government found not to be compliant. Porsche already stopped sales and BMW and Nissan will clarify their positions which means trying to get out of paying any fines and try to keep selling the cars. The foreign car market in Korea is relatively small so if they push too hard companies may just pull out. VW probably has had enough of paying fines. Source

    Can you honestly say you can't relate to this? After a weekend of partying FIAT heir Lapo Elkann (grandson of FIAT founder Gianni Agnelli) was arrested in New York due to faking his own kidnapping and attempting to extort a ransom. As it turns out, you can rack up a rather large tab during a drug filled binge with hookers. How large? $10,000 which should be chump change for him. The problem is his family cut him off. Why? Because of too much partying with hookers. I mean, if you can't spend your weekends snorting lines off a hookers ass what is the point of being an heir? Apparently Lapo did not understand the way for spoiled brats to make money in this country is to release a sex tape and then become independently wealthy. Have we learned nothing from the respectable success stories that are the Hiltons and Kardashians? Running up a bill you can't pay partying with a transgender escort is simply not the way to go. This is not the first time this has happened as back in 2005 Elkann barely survived a heroin and cocaine overdose when again he was partying with tranny prostitutes. You can't make this stuff up: Life must be pretty hard for this guy. Having a cushy executive job at FIAT due to nepotism and waiting to inherit a family fortune is just too tough of a life for some people. Source

    This is rather strange. What is the point? The interior just looks awkward. Somebody decided they wanted to sit in the middle of their 997 cabrio so they pushed the dash, steering column, shifter, seat, etc., to the right. Why? Maybe they were trying to emulate a McLaren F1 style center cockpit with two rear seats on either side to make a three-seater? What other explanation is there really? If you want this, it's for sale. The seller is asking for $53,491 and you have to wonder who will pony that up: https://www.carfax.com/vehicles/WP0CB2A99AS754083-used-2010-porsche-911-carrera-s--roswell

    The last time AudiBoost wrote about the USP Motorsports B5 S4 it just became the first 8 second Audi in the United States. This was just over two years ago as their shop S4 managed an incredible 8.973 @ 162.27 miles per hour. The record now is 8.893 @ 164.56. Just look at the record pass in the video below. This car is handful to hustle down the strip and that is putting mildly. As a reminder this car features a turbo VR6 engine swap. It makes over 900 horsepower to all four wheels. AudiBoost does not know if they changed anything on the setup or if conditions helped but this is a new record and a hell of a B5 S4.

    RW Carbon has aftermarket carbon fiber body pieces for a variety of cars. They are covering Mercedes-AMG models these days including the new W205 generation C63 AMG. Their pieces are high quality and priced well. It's a good way to add some aggression to the C63. The front spoiler is a Brabus style piece. It looks great and aggressive: They also have a DTM style carbon trunk spoiler: If that is too aggressive, this is a more mild trunk spoiler which fits all W205 models: Finally, the carbon fiber mirror covers: Just affordable and quality carbon body pieces for your W205 Mercedes C-Class.

    $20,595 to drop 55 pounds off the curb weight of the 570S? That results in a very impressive 31XX pound curb weight but one has to wonder if it doesn't make more sense for owners to go on a diet rather than opt for the Track Pack option. The Track Pack option of course includes revised aerodynamics, new lightweight wheels, new carbon seats, and a telemetry system for roadcourse junkies that records laptimes. If you have the money, why not? What's another $20k? We say it makes more sense to buy the car used and spend that $20k on performance modifications that will blow this Track Pack out of the water.

    This is simply a beautiful exhaust system. This full titanium (downpipe, mid-pipe, rear section) exhaust for the BMW F82 M4 from Innotech Performance Exhaust looks and sounds great. It also increases power and torque considerably. Plenty of exhausts look and sound pretty but do not have the performance credential to back up the superficial aspects. These are some very nice exhaust only gains: Gains throughout the whole curve plus a peak horsepower gain of 22 horsepower at the wheels on a conservative Mustang dyno. That is just with the exhaust only. With a tune, expect greater gains. Oh, and it saves almost 45 pounds over the factory exhaust too. If we're honest with ourselves we can admit the factory M4 exhaust leaves a lot to be desired. An aftermarket exhaust is practically necessary. This one ticks all the right boxes. Well, except the price. What does it cost? Probably way too much. It sure is nice setup though.

    APR's 1.8/2.0 TSI/TFSI EA888 Gen 3 MQB Carbonio intake system was already available for the appropriate Volkswagen Golf and Audi A3 models. Well, you can now add the Audi TT and TTS to the list as APR developed an adapter to fit the intake. Here's a quick overview from APR on the system: Ok, so it's high quality, well engineered, and uses carbon fiber. What are the power gains? That graph is from a GTI which is front wheel drive but expect a similar curve on the TT. Gains will change based on supporting modifications as well but ultimately the intake is increasing the efficiency of the system and removing a bottleneck. The adapter is only $8.99 on top of the $449 price: http://www.goapr.com/products/intake_ea888_gen3_mqb.html Well worth the price of entry.

    BoostAddict posted several 675LT race videos as of late. Just over a week ago we saw this same McLaren 675LT go up against a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 which it easily crushed. Now it takes a crack at a tuned Porsche 991.1 Turbo S. The 911 Turbo S has a GIAC ecu flash tune and Tubi cat-back exhaust system. The McLaren is stock. The Porsche just blows the McLaren away off the line. That's the beauty of its all wheel drive but the driver also has a much better reaction time which compounds the advantage. The 911 manages a 10.262 @ 131.8 so it wins the race but the 675LT is pulling much harder at 135.66 miles per hour despite its slower 10.575 elapsed time. With a better launch the McLaren should be able to win this race.

    Remember earlier this month when reports stated Audi intends to increase their RS performance model range to 15+ cars? Well, in preparation for this increase Audi is changing the name of the Quattro division. It will now be called Audi Sport. Why the change? They do not really say in the press release. Maybe they are differentiating between Quattro, their all wheel drive system, and their high performance range? It's easy to see how the average person could confuse these. Either way, it's now Audi Sport. quattro GmbH, established in Neckarsulm in 1983, is now operating as Audi Sport GmbH. With Stephan Winkelmann at the helm, this fully owned subsidiary of AUDI AG currently has around 1,200 employees. Since 1983 quattro GmbH, with its headquarters in Neckarsulm, has been building high-performance sports cars and delivering high-tech automotive concepts. And now the Audi subsidiary has changed its name to Audi Sport GmbH. It is built on four business areas. In addition to developing and manufacturing the Audi R8* and Audi RS models, it is responsible for customer motorsport – Audi Sport customer racing. Other areas of business include car customization options via the Audi exclusive program, plus lifestyle articles marketed as the Audi Sport collection. The name Audi Sport is inspired by a long and successful tradition of motorsport. As far back as the 1930s, the legendary “Silver Arrow” models of Auto Union were the ultimate benchmark on racing circuits worldwide. In the 1980s, the Audi quattro with permanent all-wheel drive proved outstandingly successful in rally competition. Today the brand with the four rings is involved in the DTM, Formula E, GT racing and in the TCR category. Young racing talent is being fostered in the Audi Sport TT Cup. The production models benefit from developments and technologies first used in motorsport. The Audi R8 and the Audi RS models represent the sporty vanguard of the brand, combining superlative performance with exclusiveness and prestige. The abbreviation RS stands for the most powerful engine version within a particular Audi model series, for impressive dynamic performance, for understated sophistication coupled with comprehensive everyday usability, and for quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The brand’s RS tradition started in 1994 with the appearance of the Audi RS 2 Avant. It was a trendsetter – a genuine high-performance sports car with five seats and a large luggage compartment. Since then, quattro GmbH has steadily expanded the portfolio of RS models, which now range from the compact Audi RS 3 Sportback* to superior cars such as the Audi RS 6 Avant* or Audi RS 7 Sportback*. The subsidiary’s focus is to create the most prestigious models in the portfolio of AUDI AG. The Audi R8 is the pinnacle of the product range. The first generation appeared on the market in 2007 with an innovative vehicle concept: mid-engine, systematic lightweight construction featuring Audi Space Frame technology, and quattro drive. The high-performance sports car provides a typical driving experience, but is also perfectly suited to the racetrack thanks to its optimum power-to-weight ratio. The Audi subsidiary doubled its sales over the past five years. Over the next 18 months, Audi Sport GmbH will be launching eight new models, which will further consolidate the company’s position in the market. The number of specialized Audi Sport dealers will increase from 370 at present to around 600 by the end of 2017. Stephan Winkelmann has been Managing Director of the company since March 15, 2016. Audi Sport GmbH has around 1,200 employees at locations in Neckarsulm and Ingolstadt. The product portfolio of Audi Sport GmbH currently comprises the following models: Audi RS 3 Sedan* Audi RS Q3*, Audi RS Q3 performance* Audi RS 6 Avant*, Audi RS 6 Avant performance* Audi RS 7 Sportback*, Audi RS 7 Sportback performance* Audi TT RS Coupé*, Audi TT RS Roadster* Audi R8 Coupé*, Audi R8 Spyder* Audi S8 plus*

    Both cars could have had better 60fts, 1.96 for M3 and 1.81 for GolfR. Drag radials will guarantee 10's for the GolfR.
