    Looks pretty quick. Do you know if those are stock turbos? I’d imagine so.

    What would “stage 3” consist of for an AA N54? All they offer is bolt ons, no?

    I wanted to ask the same question on AA's FB page, stock turbos, trans, etc? It appears to be a 6AT or DCT with the gears being displayed in the central info display

    Looks like a 0-60 in the mid to low 4 second range according to the speedo and video time without a hard launch. They must have boost turned down on the low end for it to hook up so well in 1st gear unless it's an XI.

    +1 440 wheel is pushing stockers pretty hard, it can be done but those are kill mode numbers. Oh well car looks pretty fast so whatever.

    In Active's defense they weren't the ones making the 440 whp claim.

    C'mon guy's you and I both know this car is not making 440whp. It is probably close to that at the crank though.

    Agreed for sure. We weren’t accusing you guys! Just seemed off for 14PSI on stock wheels. With tons of advance and octane I could see 400 wheel at the given boost pressure, but those are getting to pretty strong figures at 440.

    Our n54 flash wasn't really designed to make the most power. We just want a reliable fast car with bmw driving characteristics. If you want balls to the wall go jb4. Most customers just want it to be faster and could careless about all the options.

    Im with ya buddy. You are the 1% of bmw owners though if you think about it. You wouldn't believe how many customers are terrified of putting on a aftermarket charge pipe.

    This is funny, I guess people get scared of dealership costs and voided warranties
