    E60 M5 vs 335i rematch

    Well, the E60 M5 I raced a couple of weeks ago got his spark plugs changed and we did a couple more runs. Basically the cars were dead even from 40-140 and 60-140. If anything, I jump out half a car at most, and he reels me back in so its even again, but then has to shift again. I'd call it dead even in my opinion. Here are a couple of the several runs we got on video. This happened in mexico, of course.


    335i - fbo, map 5 spikes to 16 psi holding 15 psi (20% e85, 80% 93 octane), no meth, stock exhaust with secondary cats still in place.
    E60 M5 - rpi intake scoops, rpi exhaust. p500 sport S6 shift mode.

    I actually rode in the M5 afterward and when smg hits, it really pushes you back in the seat. Made the keys in the ignition jingle against the dash everytime another upshift was performed lol. I think that has a lot to do with the feeling of the cars acceleration....I looked over at the speedometer during acceleration, and it basically looked the same as my car, but the feeling was very different. Where my car spools and moves rather quickly, the m5 takes a little more time to get up and go. The m5 did have much stronger top end, and felt more rev happy/faster as the rpms were rising. I test drove a 6 spd manual e60 m5 with a friend, and that thing felt slow. Much slower than the smg. Click here to enlarge

    yeah thats one thing I noticed also..with the 335i(atleast mine), as soon as you punch it, all that low end torque really puts you in your seat and you start to go..once the rpms start rising the power seemed to die down some..with the M5, all that torque isnt there so when you punch it, its doesnt really feel that fast but once those rpms start climbing, then it really starts to move..the power delivery is amlost completly opposite in the 335 and M5..but like I said earlier, very nice run..cant wait to find a FBO 335i to play with
