    Thumbs up '03 Cobra vs. 335i

    Cobra -Longtubes, full exhaust, SC pulley, intake, tune, DRs, and I don't remember what else but it was loud as hell and sounded badass! Click here to enlarge

    335i (my car) - full weight/gas, FMIC, DCI, DPs, DRs, e60 and Cobb AP @17psi (self-tune).

    First and last run were from 20/40 (I forget which is which). Second run, I had TC on then had to stop due to a car in front of us. I maxed-out 5th gear (6k rpms) on each.

    Good battle.

    Wow!!! You're car is moving. When I heard that last honk and the cobra guns it. It sounded like the end of the world. Lol have you ran it at the track to see what it traps?

    Nice runs. Would have been nice to see how you pulled him in on the second run, he had a bit of a lead at the start.

    aww true american muscle can't handle speeds past 130 as well as the BMW?! Click here to enlarge

    That's what I loved about my 5 series you hit 110 + it sank down and really went into it!

    Really nice runs man. Glad to see a 3 series give a Cobra a run for its money!

    I haven't run it on the current tune. I did 118-119 with the old state of tune (37xx race weight, 1500 DA). That was a 435whp setup. The Cobra owner said he put down 46x whp. Gearing and aero matter at those speeds.

    I'll re-dyno and hit the track again sometime this fall.

    Color me impressed. I had a 2003 GT before my 335i and I always wanted to get a Terminator. Every day I get a step closer to going FBO, and videos like this push me closer and closer. Haha.

    Awesome kills Ghost -- What's your starting RPM?? Also guessing you're break boosting to avoid any lag at the start

    I didn't brake boost at all. I should have as it makes a huge difference. Stock turbos do alright for being so tiny.

    Nice kill! I've had several similar runs against fbo terminators and cammed c5 z06s (they are relatively close in terms of speed.)

    DRs plus LSD FTW!

    I have PSS and during the summer I can hook in 3rd gear and above. I the winter I can't hook in any gear (the PSS suck below like 60 degrees).

    Get the new Michelin Pilot A/S 3's for the fall/winter Click here to enlarge They are the same tread design/pattern as the super sports (PSS) with a bit more siping and the tread doesnt become a hockey puck @ 50 degrees. They just released them last month theyre better than any All Season in the wet and beat the Continental DW and Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position(Both Max Performance Summer Tires) in the dry even though the A/S 3 is categorized as Ultra High Performance All Season ! I just put them on my c63 im in love with them as the temps drop here in NY

    Really? Wow.

    Is the low temp performance truly better? And you're saying the dry grip as superior to the PSS as well? Honestly, the PSS are good, but I still could use more grip even in the summer.

    Yes the low temp performance will be MUCH better than the PSS or any summer tire. The compound is made to not harden up as temps drop and has some fancy sunflower oil fused in the rubber to keep it soft as temps go down. Idk about superior to the PSS but it beat out the PSS competitors like the Conti DW and Bridgstone Potenza Pole Position in the dry and would rape them in the cold or wet. It basically is a All Season Pilot Super Sport look at the tread pattern theyre very similar. Itll give you 90+% of the PSS grip in the summer but MUCH better grip in the cold and/or wet

    Look it up man it was just released recently like within the last month. Reviewers are loving it and call it the perfect all year tire ! Im just using it as my fall/winter set and run Nitto NT05's for the summer (Extreme Performance Summer much better dry grip than PSS for summer)

    Damn, I need to look into these. Will probably only buy a set of rears to swap for the winter as the whole set has like 3k miles on them.

    Thanks
