" IMO considering this is more of an M "package" car and not a real M car, where the MB is a real AMG car, I think the Bimmer did pretty awesome.

I'd actually like to see the CLA45 up against a 1M and then a "M2" if BMW does one. "

Yes, they raided the parts bin and found an over engineered block that made for one of the best motors in F1 history.

If you're not impressed so be it, I am.

in the modern world of F1 being strong is merely one aspect. hopefully it doesn't need to be said that it needs to be strong enough to withstand the loads it is subjected to, that is obviously a requirement. "

SteveAZ created the thread Got my Blackstone oil analysis report back.....
" Since I do a lot of experimenting and run a fairly non-standard setup, I sent my oil out for analysis.

Various specs on the car that may influence these results:

BMS DCI
ER oil cooler
Runs on 100% E85 all the time
E85 CP injection (started that approx. 3K in to this oil's interval)
Mobile 1 0W 30
6um external inline E85 compatible high flow filter "

Sticky created the thread MotorTrend compares the 2014 BMW F22 M235i to the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C117 CLA45 AMG.
" We will be seeing this comparison many times over the next few years. MotorTrend already compared these cars last month with the Subaru WRX STI picked as the winner over both. In that comparison the CLA45 AMG finished in last place and the BMW M235i finished in 2nd place although the CLA45 AMG was quicker around the track than the M235i and also the faster car in a straight line. Well, here we go again without the Subaru.



MotorTrend is rehashing content but considering the popularity of these two cars that is fine. As you already know these two cars have significant differences. The Mercedes-Benz CLA45 has a turbocharged 2.0 liter four-cylinder. The motor, codenamed M133, is the world's most powerful production four-cylinder and a beast of a 2.0 liter. The M235i has the tried and true turbocharged 3.0 liter N55 inline-6 although at 320 horsepower it is rated at 35 horses less than the CLA45 AMG.

The BMW is rear wheel drive with an 8-speed ZF automatic (a manual is an option). The CLA45 AMG by contrast has a seven speed dual clutch transmission and it sends power to all four wheels.

So does MotorTrend feel differently about these cars a month later? Well, the M235i is criticized for its brakes and steering feel. It is said to offer great fun factor partially due to being able to wag its tail around and its balance. "

" Actually the sound starts to grow on me.
I can hardly believe I'm saying this, but sound in this sport is not all that important.
Ron Dennis actually has some valid points here about the sound issue.

And as he says, there's not gonna be a solution for it this year. "
