I completely understand your logic here.

If one intends to modify the M235i makes a lot of sense especially if you value fun factor.

The M235i is artificially limited by BMW, we know this. They charge you to unlock it (only to a degree) with their M Performance Parts.

The CLA45 AMG is probably not going to be nearly as much fun to drive but it's a hell of a drag racer with the all wheel drive and DCT. I prefer its styling as it is more progressive but this is as subjective point. "

Honestly, with this much performance in the standard car, you have to wonder how much more you could need for a car you'd likely spend at least half the time on the street with.
I know it flies in the face of convention but I'd love for someone to boost a GT3. "

I have to say I've rarely seen an E90 M3 quoted in the 35xx range, manual or not.
The lightest E92 M3 is always going to be lighter since that is the GTS. That said, standard trim the difference between the two seems to be a lot closer than it should.

Close to the point where how much fuel you have in the tank sways the results. "

Not that I can find but their dyno's are way different over there anyway. Difficult to compare. We can at least go by the trap speed. "

" This thread is the most perfect example of why these installs should be done by shops with experience in turbochargers and only shops with experience in turbo chargers. This thread is also a perfect example of why OP's with such little experience should move forward very very slowly after the initial install and make sure everything is set up properly. Overfilling your oil even to an extreme wouldn't push it out the breather, you would start burning oil and smoking. If you are pushing out the breather, your engine is hurt. No two ways about it. "

I actually know the guy with the e63 you lost to. He didn't even floor it since it had 500 miles on it. He said you had a little camera and took vids. I guess posting a loss video isn't as scintillating. "

" Nice comparo! Been waiting for one of these, and pretty well summarized. The 997 4.0 engine and manual, and more hardcore RS setup might be a winner for alot of owners, but hard to deny that high revving motor, faster pdk, and quicker all around package in a less hardcore setup in the 991 "

" I'm going to be fabbing up a top mount s372 T4 kit on my friends 335i. I am very familiar with tunerpro and EFI tuning priciples, since I have been tuning EFI systems for well over 10yrs. I have a BT cable and have read about a hidden forum on bimmerboost for the development of the open source code and XDF files. I'd love access to this information. I'll be more than willing to test different ideas and share what I learn along the way. One question I do have is: why are n54's only running roughly 10* of timing, while running boost pressures that normally would allow 20*+ of timing. I normally run over 20* until well past 10psi, on other platforms I have dyno tuned. On e85 I have ran well past 30* of timing to well past 10psi(basically NA timing values). I don't understand the low timing values used. Less than MBT would just add massive heat to the exhaust and is generally NOT GOOD FOR TURBOS. This also may be causing many of the main o2 sensor failures on ST n54's. Thank you for any insight given. "
