    E90 LCI 335i vs 2013 F12 650i.. I6 TT vs V8 TT

    So earlier this morning went to check out a friends and fellow forum members new 2013 650i bmw... Amazing car inside and out, just breathtaking to be honest.

    He traded his FBO 335i for it and of course our first instinct was to find out how does it match up in stock form.

    My car was in its DD form and has a bunch of travel stuff, work related stuff, and a full bmw spare tire/rim along with a jack and tools.. Had about 100 lbs of nonsense stuff in the trunk and to add to it, i outweight the 650i owner about 60-100lbs, im 6'3" big guy. The weight advantage wasn't in my favor.
    We did a 40-130 run, he got the jump and after 100mph i SLOWLY was edging forward.
    The another 40-120, i got the jump and race ended at about 1 car length win or so for me.


    So fast forward to tonite.. I went home after work and removed all the tools and garbage from my car including the spare and etc.
    Got our drivers weights to be equal and had another go at it, all else equal..

    40-120+
    -200lbs made a nice difference as the 2nd and 3rd gear became beast on the 335i and race ended as seen in the video..
    Im sure Mike will chime in.. was great fun to try out the cars.. Had some AMG forum member guys come along with us aswell as oter 335i members.

    Yea the shifts are soo amazingly fast on the 650i 8 speed, makes the 335i AT shifts seem broken.
    From what the owner told me, only Dinan at the moment and there making 50WHP.. And of course a crazy expensive price tag. With a tune only its gonna be a close race, or he might edge me out.... These things are fast.. C&D magazine is putting it at 112mph traps stock.

    the new 650 has the N63?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I don't understand why the N63 can't have a damn piggyback. Just gotta figure how to control the WG solenoids, TMAP, fueling, CPS and CANbus. Doesn't BT have N63 support yet?
