    We already saw this comparison earlier in the year when Car and Driver compared the F82 M4 to the Porsche 991 Carrera. In that comparison, the M4 came out on top. Let's see what happens when the Brits over at EVO get a hold of both of these cars for a track comparison. This is the big question, does the M4's power and updated chassis allow it to beat the lighter rear engined Porsche 991 Carrera around the track? EVO does the comparison well showing both cars lapping at the same time. This allows some of the trademark characteristics of the cars to show. Namely that the 911 has less understeer on turn in but this is the area that one traditionally has to be careful with a 911 getting back on the power exiting the apex so that oversteer does not bite you in rear end. The 911 handling is definitely tighter. The M4's additional mass shows as it tends to push a bit. The 911's lead built in and out of turns is made up by the M4's power. Finesse versus muscle is what we witness. The tighter the course gets, the more it ends up favoring the 991. Laptimes (for reference a 458 Speciale laps this track in 1:14.2): Porsche 991 Carrera: 1:17.8 BMW F82 M4: 1:19.2 The 911 in this comparison proves it is the better sports car. To open up a gap like that on the M4 even with a huge power deficit shows how impressive the 991 chassis is. If this was a 911 model with more power, it would not even be a contest. The M4 is more muscle car and that is the direction BMW M is headed with their street cars. If you want the cheaper car with more power, the choice is the M4. If you want the better driver's car, it's the 911.

    Hi everyone, first post here, new to this car. Yes I did a search, I haven't been under a forum rock for the last decade. I have an 08 335xi sedan. JB4, DCI, 3" VRSF pipes and the VRSF DP fix. I've been running the car with the stock pipes since November with the JB4 and I average 18.5mpg around town on pump gas on tune #1 . Sometimes I play around with e85 and tune 5, but then I've only seen MPGs dip to 17.9 or so. 2 weeks ago I had the 3" VRSF pipes installed and I installed the DP fix a few days later when the CEL came on (surprised me it took that long). It's currently set at "5 o'clock" and the code was cleared using the JB4. The CEL hasn't come back and I do NOT have it set to auto clear, so I 'think' it's set right. Now, my MPGs are around 14 or 14.5 if I baby it. I honestly expected an MPG increase with the new pipes, or at least things to stay the same. This large change has me surprised. I'm curious if I maybe need to use a different tune on the JB4 or if I perhaps need to turn 'up' or 'down' the DP fix? Maybe the DP fix makes it run really rich? I did a search but couldn't really find much, it's hard to search short words on the forums as I'm sure we all have experienced. Thanks all! Great site (and I can even get to it at work) -Pro

    ncat10 started a thread 335IS Stock flash form ISTA in N54
    Hello all. Can anybody provide proper ZUB# from ISTA for 335IS ( ILAOS ) ? Now i have IJEOS with DCT trans, but have issue with post shifting advance under hight boost conditions. I want to migrate from IJEOS to ILAOS and use bb flash for ILAOS. If anybody have 335IS with ILAOS, can anybody GRAB assemble number via INPA ? I found this one ZUB=7649338 and try to migrate on ILAOS under WINKFP, but boost is not working ( so i Think this is flash for n53 engine )

    The first patent photos of the 2015 Porsche 911 GT3 RS have surface online. Discovered by Car Magazine, the pictures reveal the model will follow in the footsteps of the 911 GT3 but adopt a muscular hood and wider, ventilated front fenders. Moving further back, there's double bubble roof, lightweight wheels and rear fenders from the 911 Turbo. The model also has a new engine cover and a sporty rear wing. Inside, there's sports seats and a roll cage that resides where the rear seats would normally be located. Porsche has been relatively coy about the model but it could use a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that develops more than 475 PS (349 kW). It will likely be paired exclusively to a PDK transmission which has been specifically tuned for use in the model. Hit up the source link for additional photos Source: Car Magazine

    It's time to add horsepower guys. I'm not sure why we're going up as quickly as we're going up as I'm not ready for it. I wish traffic and load would go down a bit but, well, this is the trend: So, I'm exploring server upgrade options at the moment. Please bear with me. Also I hope this is easy on the checkbook as this is getting expensive to run.

    We're concentrating on the 335i fitment at the moment, so nothing for the M3 yet. The sample we have just now is for the 8 bolt. Once this is tested and ok, we will proceed with the 6 bolt version.
