    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Yes Semislicks, Michelin Pilot Sport 235/40-18 front and 265/35-18 rear. The car was not really performing its best this day, had some boost leak problems so I could only do 12psi, and I was running a suuuuuper high diffrential, or a S2.65 from a 325tds, hence the grip but also not as fast as it could be. 2.65 makes it possible to reach 200km/h in 3rd gear on the semislicks, and 280km/h in 4th. You can see that I dont need to change gears that much.
    1995 BMW M3GT nr:111/350 TwinTurbo and some other mods.

    With a M3 you really have to rev the engine to get to the higher powerband. The N54 does not need high rpm to get much torque.
    Again, Joseph, maybe you should first try to drive a 1M before shooting down this car for what it says om paper.
    And the 1M still only has 265 size rubber on the rear wheels as standard tire size versus the 285 (? not sure) of a standard M3.
    That would break it out a little more easy with the same carweight.
    I'm not shooting the car down. I'm criticizing its makeup and it being classified as an M car.

    Uh, it did beat its predecessor around the ring.
