    The difference in past and present BMW M philosophy illustrated on the drag strip - Stock X5M beats up on an E46 M3

    This video comes courtesy of BimmerBoost member Hansel22 who took his X5M to the drag strip putting down some impressive times (timeslips below). The SUV is completely stock. Hansel ran into an E46 M3 on the drag strip and basically embarrassed it. This is the new M, making heavy turbocharged SUV's and cars that are beasts in a straightline. There was a time where you would see M's, just like the E46 M3, on a track with turns. Now you will being seeing M's do this.

    Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily as the X5M shows just what a strong SUV it is. An SUV is not supposed to be a track weapon anyway. An M car is though. Still, an interesting juxtaposition here with M's past and M's present. A 12.6@110 sure is impressive for a stock SUV but is it as impressive as the E46 M3 is behind the wheel on a roadcourse? Now there is question.

    Check out the video and slips below.

    I'm getting in back from the dealer with the Dinan tune & exhaust Thursday. So I'll have time slips from after I head back to the track.

    Having been lucky to test drive the X6M, it would be a close call to choose between the two.

    Exact same Nurburgring lap times is a tell of how well it handles on the twisties. I couldn't feel the roll or weight, but the main drawback was it's tiny visibility out the rear window, which I'm guessing is better on the X5M.

    Props for taking it to the strip!

    They're pretty quick, good amount of TQ. If the TT engine was in a 3 series it would be a rocket. Only thing that kills the x5m is the size. But hey I use it for work every day. It's a great construction vehicle.

    That X5M time of 12.6 is faster than most stock E9x M3s as well! It shouldn't be a surprise that a new M truck is faster than a 12 year old M car. I would have a problem if this truck were giving better times than my 2013 m3.

    That's part of it the other part being it's an SUV with a 5300 pound curb weight. Upgraded turbos would of course help but this thing doesn't pull up top like an M5.

    The point isn't which is faster of course newer turbo cars will be faster. It's what track environment M's are more suited for now.

    It isn't quicker than a stock E92 m3 the E92 M3 is simply harder to launch as it isn't all wheel drive and auto.

    I'm assuming the turbos are the same, but do you know what are the differences are between the S63 (X5 & X6 M) and the S63 Tu (M5, M6, M6 GC)??
