    Pursuant to my information, German tuners have been able to flash the N55 of all F-series cars since the beginning of July.

    Don't forget the aerodynamics of the 135i are worse than of the M4. Which is an additional explanation why the M4 edges it out on top. Might be different with an E90 / E92 with the same configuration.

    Which is exactly why you always need to read these "reviews" quite carefully and think about whether your own criteria correspond to theirs.

    I would wager that the majority of people considering...
  4. Many of the R8 V8 engines (also concerns the RS4)...

    Many of the R8 V8 engines (also concerns the RS4) have quite a bit less than the 420hp they should have on paper. Much of it due to heavyly carbonised intake valves that is a result of the direct...

    Looks good.

    Although the weight reduction of the V10Plus is something of a chimera as a big part is achieved by using the smaller fuel tank of the R8 V8 model.

    The FF is really ugly. But great engine. That V12 sound! Ahhh.
  7. But not in the last decade. Not really. If you go...

    But not in the last decade. Not really. If you go to a racetrack in Germany you see loads of E30, E36 and E46 but only very, very few E9x M3. That won't change with their current line-up, as even the...

    Porsches are called "dentist beetles" where I come from. You see them everywhere. Great cars, but not appealing to me personally due to the never-changing design.
  9. Well, at least Audi has a proper sports car in...

    Well, at least Audi has a proper sports car in their lineup with the R8. Something that BMW hasn't had for decades. They only have a car that looks like a sportscar but doesn't drive like one, to...

    No surprise there. AFAIK the gearing of the DCT is shorter than the MT.
  11. I can't really see a market for this thing. If...

    I can't really see a market for this thing. If you target high-end luxury cars, you need a well-established brand that is different from the run-of-the-mill cars. I had thought BMW understood that...

    Didn't you say recently you were done with throwing money after German cars? I though I remembered something like that...:)

    Seems to be a great kit. Fuel consumption must be scary though...!

  13. Sad as it is, you forgot to add even one more...

    Sad as it is, you forgot to add even one more thing they're apparently developing: a 9 series (was announced on the other forum today). The "insider" said that this was the new BMW DNA. Meaning...
  14. W205: I don't like the design of the Merc at all, but...

    I don't like the design of the Merc at all, but as with women beauty is in the eye of the beholder and highly subjective.

    That being said, I'm sure this C63 will give the M3 a run for its money....
  15. General: Only logical for BMW. They have offered an M...

    Only logical for BMW. They have offered an M sport kit (= body kit, wheels, interior) for every car in their line-up. Hell, you can order a 114i M sport if you want to. So why not the front wheel...

    They also wrote that the R8 is a lot of fun to drive and has much better sound. But the Turbo is certainly faster in every discipline - no surprise considering the R8 in this form has been out for...

    All turbos that I'm aware of that are having the oil leak problem have only been driven for a few hundred miles. Basically they had oil problems since they were installed, which has nothing to do...

    Of course. There the lighter car (Porsche) with the better traction (Porsche) and quicker gear changes (Porsche) should be much faster.
  19. My point exactly, thanks for underligning the...

    My point exactly, thanks for underligning the issue. The more powerful, lighter car with a double clutch transmission and all wheel drive was driven slower than the heavier, less powerful rear wheel...

    This is a really funny test. To me it just means that these guys can't drive. And they only use semi slicks on the Camaro which obviously skews the results in favour of it. Porsche also offers cup...

    It's not clear in each case where exactly the leak is located. What is clear is that the oil leak is coming from the turbo.

    Exactly.

    I know of 2 definite cases in which the turbos were severely leaking oil and which were sent back to Vargas, one in Germany and another one from Switzerland. A third kit is also leaking...

    Just like almost all of the ones that were sent to my German friends...that's not good.

    Looks cool. Good to see also that prototype testing on the Nürburgring has started again.

    Interesting. Although I'd personally prefer driving an R8 V10 without turbo chargers.
