^^ Haha. They'll need to do something a bit more scientific than that. I dunno what, but a Top Gear-esque faceoff is in order, I think.
So "low 170s" whether JB3 or stock?

All the Alpinas lined up like that with the girl looking over the balcony, fingering herself to awesomeness.
Well, what I meant was limiter off in both stock and JB3 instances. And not on open roads, hypothetically, the Texas Mile.
What do you think is the top speed of a 335i? Stock and then with a JB3 and full bolt-ons?

Yes... That third one is money. Thanks.

Haha, nah man. That's the one that's everywhere. I'm talking this: http://www.bimmerboost.com/images/imported/2010/07/2328.jpg

I'm trying to find an "Alpina" logo picture to use as an avatar on a forum, but I can't find one. I'm obviously talking about it just being "Alpina" in silver much like BMWs state their model, not...

Agreed. The last-gen Alpina B7s really didn't stick out as much from their BMW counterparts. The spoiler was the only thing. Even the wheels weren't that spectacular, which seems to be the exact...

I understand taste is subjective but Alpina Blue is an incredible color. You need to see both the color and the wheels in person to appreciate it. Go to Alpina's website and look at the hi-res...

No, he would have been unable to transfer those pics because his USB cable would have caught fire.
It's not great at all, but here's a vid of the car in action. When I stood...

I guess you gotta see it when the sun's out to really see the paint change colors depending on the angle. I kinda wish they actually said "B7 Biturbo" instead of just "B7."
I'm pretty sure it was...

Yeah, I think Alpina just ups the boost and some other tweaks to their cars. I dunno if they have their own turbos they put in.

I didn't know that. Must have been a cost thing. Or R&D thing. They may not have been so sure on the threshold this early but they may make a switch in a year or two or for the LCI model of the B7....

According to Dinan, it's only a 14hp/16 ft.lb torque for a grand. http://www.dinancars.com/store/product.php?productid=4678&cat=413&page=1
Seems like BMS is the better value for a fifth of the...

Well, these are for VW/Porsche and their affiliate brands. What's the fastest BMW transmission shifting at? I also just realized the new and the old B7 share the same transmission. A spokesperson...

You're right. I read the article very quickly.
"Shifts happen in just 190 milliseconds, which is quick even for a dual-clutch gearbox."

Yeah, I can see that. But like I mentioned, he won't be taking it to a track, he doesn't wanna be out there keeping up with Porsches. He just wants a car that looks "different" and is "exclusive."...

My dad has an F01 B7. It turns heads and it was still a good $20K less than a 760. It's a unique car and while the performance boost is really nice, it's more about just owning an exclusive car. A...
I don't think this thing did a ten-second 60-130. Wasn't it Hotrod's N54 that did a six-second 60-130?
Haha, ah man. Just got us waiting for this, huh? Now I'm checking this, my news feed, and Twitter waiting for something.
I still gotta find the list. Where is it?
Man, are we there yet?
959, huh? That's awesome. Can't wait for the drawing.
So are we using the number of people with a Garage as a tally on how many people have entered so far? Or is it from new entries?
Oh, it should be noted it was taken with my camera phone. I had to downgrade the pics as they were all 8MB+ in their PNG form, so.... The actually looked a ton better on my computer.
