• Cobb Tuning Stage 2 E82 135i takes on an Evolve tuned Stage I E60 M5

      Just to preface both Evolve and Cobb are vendors on BimmerBoost for good reasons, they have great tunes powering some very fast BMW's. What you see here in this video are two very different tuned vehicles. The E60 M5 with a Stage I Evolve tune and Eisenmann race exhaust for its naturally aspirated 5.0 liter V10 is the camera car. The E82 135i has the Cobb Stage II aggressive with downpipes and a twin turbo N54 3.0 liter I6.

      The M5 runs away up top which is really no surprise. The S85 V10 really shines on the highway where it is at its best. Video is below.

        The F1 sound and 200+mph top speed are what sold me years ago. It's funny how worked up I still get when I see one passing by and I own the damn thing.. Haha Click here to enlarge

        Now your C63 is a freak of it's own.. I'm still amazed what lurks under the hood when I see one. It's hard to believe the displacement stuffed in there Click here to enlarge

        I always think about Jeremy Clarkson's comments on top gear about the C63.. Lol
        "It's not a car... It's a complete animal!"
        "You don't really drive this car, you cling on for dear life!"
        "Sure the new M3 has a top notch conventional weapon under the bonnet.. but this.. this has a nuke!" Click here to enlarge

        Hopefully it happens, the 135i seems to think he can take the V10 down with a traction advantage Click here to enlarge BTW this M5 has the Euro Launch Control..

        -TZ

        I just rounded up a 0-130 mph vid of my M with basically the same mods as @khyber

        I think the 135i owner is in for a surprise when he sees the M5 from a dig Click here to enlarge I'll ask Khyber what's going on with their run..

        This is with an extra passenger using the US spec launch control. I should have held 1st gear a little longer and it wouldn't have bogged hitting 2nd.
