    Itís sooo annoying that Audi decided in some coke-induced haze of one of their idiotic bean counter meetings that for the C8 replacing the V8 with a generic 3l TDI engine is a good idea for the S6/7...

    The British sports car magazine Evo is not at all impressed about the X3M: https://www.evo.co.uk/bmw/x3/202087/bmw-x3-m-2020-review-the-right-ingredients-in-a-very-wrong-package

    It’s an excellent time by itself actually.

    A pity the C8 won’t be offered in Europe for the time being.

    Well the speedo the 550i is equipped with only goes up to 260 km/h. Once the car is remapped, that means I won’t know the speed I’m driving it once I’m beyond 260. That is obviously unacceptable.

    Exactly.

    Precisely the reasons I got myself a 550i XD now. The automatic transmission is great, fast enough, and the AWD makes the power of the car drivable in all conditions.

    Also, you can...

    Just got me a 550i xDrive as a daily driver, fabulous car for long distances and high speed Autobahn drives.

    Looking forward to seeing what I can get out of the N63TU with a remap and some AR...

    Didn't you say something similar about a McLaren? :)

    Looks really good I must say, the facelifted R8 Gen2. Such an idiocy that Audi has decided to can this gorgeous car.

    I think BMW believes this is more or less covered by the Alpina B3. Particularly if now theyíre also using the s58 engine in it.

    They tried to dyno the Pista. Unfortunately and due to the mid-engine layout (no possibility to put weight over the driven wheels to improve traction) they were unable to dyno it because they got...
  12. G20/G80: 'BMW design and the sorry slide from quiet confidence to muddled mediocrity'

    From British car magazine evo: https://www.evo.co.uk/bmw/201850/bmw-design-and-the-sorry-slide-from-quiet-confidence-to-muddled-mediocrity

    Magazines have to accept the cars that they are given. Otherwise you would not have anything to read at all.

    sport auto is the most rigorous of car magazines I know. They put each car in their...

    While I agree that buying a used MP4-12C without warranty is not a clever idea, I do not share the other points you made.

    While problems with the electronics and satnav of the MP4-12C were quite...

    Sure, I just wanted to point this out because that's what the magazine usually says.

    Thatís right but then Iím not interested in straight line performance. I want the car to drive well on curvy roads and on a race track like the Nordschleife, and I need to be able to use the...

    Exaxtly. The M235i comes with an open diff stock and that becomes an issue when you increase the torque massively. A limited slip diff like from OS Giken, Quaife, Wavetrac or Drexler would be of...

    Both are great cars in their own right. And there are a lot of similarities like the mid-engined layout that provides such great traction and control, the excellent driving position and short front...

    Yes exactly. With 400hp it’s already more than struggling to get the torque on the ground as soon as there’s a corner, which I could still improve with an LSD, better suspension and wider tires. Add...

    They had problems with the tires, probably a faulty batch from Pirelli.

    Otherwise they would have used cup tires and probably gone a few seconds quicker...

    The 600LT will feature in the next Supertest of the German car magazine sport auto, out around the 10th of August.

    Or driveability. Iíve got an M235i with bolt-ons making 405 hp / 600Nm torque (crank) and you seriously feel the need for an LSD, wheelspin all over the place in the first 4 gears.

    With 800Nm Iím...

    You mean if itís registered in the US? Sure thatís possible. From what Iíve heard they will sell the TT version in Europe but that wonít be before 2021 😡

    Indeed, sadly not available in Europe due to emission regulations, at least with this engine.

    The guy driving for sport auto (Christian Gebhardt) is seriously fast and not what you would call an amateur driver at all. He also participates regularly in races, for example the 24h NŁrburgring...
