    Awesome! I have a friend in Germany (European Delivery) who just picked up his F10 M5. He took it to the Nürburgring yesterday and says it feels way, way faster than his E60 M5 which had intakes, full exhaust including headers, ECU tune, transmission tune and some other minor mods.

    He's feeling that turbo torque.

    Look how nicely the turbos are holding it together on up top. They are far from being maxed out.

    I don't don't know, 22 psi and the torque is dropping. It certainly doesn't match their old M5 curves.

    Oh yeah that's for certain that no matter what they can't match the beautiful curve of S85.

    I want something like the Omar tuned N63. No boost bombing in the mid range to make huge numbers.

    I hate to say this, but all of a sudden the M6 has grown on me badly. Decisions...

    They said somewhere else (one of the other forums, don't remember) that 4th gear was inconsistent so they used 3rd gear for that run.

    Wonder why they didn't do it in 5th. It's 1:1.

    You know guys, sometimes I just can't win.

    Autoblog cited BimmerBoost as a source but wrote "Bimmerpost" in the article text. FML, seriously.

    The idea of BMW underrating its engine outputs is nothing new. Earlier this year, the new 328i show some impressive numbers of its own.

    If you want my opinion, I think it's because they would have had a more reasonable horsepower number and they knew this 527 number would get a ton of attention. I'm pretty sure it's more inflated from the Dynojet and the 3rd gear run than it is because the engine is underrated, though it probably is pretty underrated.

    And Sticky, I hope you emailed them so they can fix their typo.

    Here's a AMG E63 non-performance w/RT software upgrade only. Had some tire slip on dyno. The F10 M5 it's still impressive for a 4.4L.
