Sticky created the thread APR Stage I tuned 2015 DSG Volkswagen MKVII GTI before and after 1/4 mile results.
" APR released their Stage I ECU tune software for the new MKVII Volkswagen GTI last week. The software showed some very impressive gains on the dyno and APR provided VBOX acceleration data as well. GPS performance meter testing is great but we obviously like to see 1/4 mile dragstrip numbers in addition and APR has now provided a set of timeslips. The stock 2015 DSG MKVII GTI runs a 14.283 @ 97.10 in the 1/4 mile on 93 octane pump gas.

That is with full weight and a density altitude of 1823 feet. Obviously summer weather is not going to produce record times but that is a great baseline especially for that density altitude. With just a change in the software alone the GTI runs a best elapsed time of 13.189 seconds and a best trap speed of 110.40 is achieved.

The 110.40 trap speed comes on the worse elapsed time of 13.223 and the 13.189 run has a 107.95 trap speed. Regardless, it looks like 108-110 is about the range for a 93 octane pump gas tuned MKVII GTI which certainly is impressive. All three timeslips are below.

You must be pleased to know that for 2016 DTM will switch to a 2L 4-cylinder turbo engine setup.
Yes, this is why the F82 M4 has no link to the DTM car unlike the E30 M3. So the E30 M3 is more race car off the showroom floor than the M4 ever will be.

When BMW nuts up and decides to race the "efficient dynamic" turbo engines, then they will regain some respect in motorsports. Right now, I don't see BMW even attempting to race an S55 powered car or develop a powerplant derived from the S55. The new M4 loses some of the heritage of the old M3 models, if they make no attempt to compete with the car.
Bingo. "

" I see stickys point. He is well aware of the current regulations of DTM. DTM is lame anyways, it is a glorified spec series.

BMW is currently not racing any car that has as direct relation to a car on their showroom floor. The Z4 GT3, uses an engine based off an engine from another platform. Not to mention the S65 isn't even in production anymore and a coupe Z4M doesn't even exist.

damn, i had no idea it was actually a global issue with him. that just makes it all the better how he gets treated. Don't think anything can top the gearboxing though. "
