    non sense, the S65 is never obsolete, but in the output to price ratio, hard to beat the S55. Glad to see BMW didnt cripple the engine/turbo's too much to get almost N/A-like throttle response.

    you'll have to read through the article, but C&D was able to trap at 121mph. Im comparing times from the...

    those 5-60 times show very minimal lag with the M4, so a floor-it-n-go method might be almost as effective as using LC. That 5-60 time in the Porsche shows how reliant it is on a higher RPM clutch...

    wow, for approx $500-$600 for a JB4, you can get an M3/M4 into the lower end of the hyper-car territory. Thats friggin amazing. I see close to or above 130mph traps with exhaust, maybe filters, maybe...

    It's manipulative marketing, otherwise known an 'shiv' marketing. I'm betting a similar system will be developed for the M3/M4, only with twin e-wastegate controls, and it'll be $4,000, because you...

    I think the wording is "legally" accurate. D-tronic "was" designed to be 50-state emissions legal, instead of D-tronic "is" designed to be 50-state emissions legal. Also, the name is lame, anything...

    so essentially out of the box, the S55 is making almost 100 more rwhp than the S65 with an older 80E software. holy $#@!nitz!

    I wonder if it's due to the fact that it's breathing directly through the hood vent? Great price! I never expected reasonable prices for basic S65 S/C kits.

    if it looks as beautiful as that concept above, I don't care if it lost half of that projected weight loss ;) BMW knows how to build nimble near 4,000lbs cars (E60 M5, E38 7-series). I can understand...

    Holy crap, that E60 got walked bad (and so did that SRT-6 crossfire) that was in the far lane. And then that last video, that 911 got walked by the MC as hard as the E60 did by the 911. Insane video!

    It doesn't have sport package (the body trim isn't a Sport anyways), it doesn't have the M-sport body kit, so it doesn't have the stagg wheel/tire set. The one C&D tested is an X-line model with...
  14. N63/N63TU: the tires arent performance tires like on the...

    the tires arent performance tires like on the 4.6/4.8is, nor are they as wide, so I don't expect handling/braking # to be the same. I wonder why 5/6 series with the same engine have such a hard time...

    sounds awful for an inline 6, but im willing to bet that tinny and insubstantial sound is the result of the placement of high-flow metallic primary cats. Its like the USDM S54; once you remove the...

    Amazing thing is that with just UDSM MDM and the GTS-DCT software set at max (S5 on MDM), I ran consistant times; all six slips are within a +/- .0X (yes, a couple hundredths, not tenths), with...

    Yes, been away from my area for a bit, but here it is (yes, the guy who handed my the slip couldn't rip the slip correctly, I guess they ran out of scissors)

    agreed with everything in this article. Cant speak enough good words on Evolve.

    I had something similar happen to my S65 tune, Sal explained why it idled at 900rpm and generated pre-O2 and vacuum codes on my particular car. It had to do something with idle speed variance not...

    Hi all, I just wanted to share my experience with my latest Evolve file that i requested to be aggressive. My purchase also came with the GTS-DCT and Servotronic file at the time they had a group buy...

    Seems like BMW still seems to list DIN at 1497kg (3300.32lbs), while EU is listed at 1572kg (3465.667) (90% fluids, 68kg (149.91lbs) person, 7kg (15.43lbs) luggage(?))

    But then in ( ) it lists the...

    If you don't have a 3 series or a 5 series, or any type of mainstream foundational product line for the M-division to start modifying, there won't be any M-cars right?

    times are changing, the euro market isn't at its finest; adapt or die. I think BMW made a wise choice for survival, they are in it for profits and this is probably one of the nicest looking vehicle...

    I guess without knowing the companies full financials, it's all speculation. I'm pretty sure BMW operates like any other company; some revenue generated typically go towards future development of the...
