    No surprise there. AFAIK the gearing of the DCT is shorter than the MT.

    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...!

    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...

    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....

    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.
  10. 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.

    Nothing surprising there. It's what I always said - it's basically the weight of the E92 335i.

    Also, it should be mentioned that the weight savings become less obvious when you spec it up like it...

    Tuningwerk in Germany do. They developed their own, actually. But it's very expensive - around 1500 EUR. That's what I would go with if I went down that route.

    Excellent idea to make such a list. Even if not all agree on every item, but it's a very good starting point.

    I would like to add another item for the 6MT guys: A single mass flywheel. You can...

    From what I read from the journalists who have actually driven both cars, it is exactly the contrary. They wrote that the Turbo is better to drive as it gives a more precise feedback when approaching...

    What might be interesting to know in this context is that the German magazine "sport auto" recently published an article comparing the new Porsche GT3 and the Turbo S and concluded that the Turbo S...

    Great work and results, props to Tony and Dzenno for this. I'm also curious to see how they can be pushed on E93 as that's what I would be running myself, but it's good to see how far you can push...

    And quite obviously they don't know what they're talking about. Here's what was already published in the other forum:
