    This video comes to us from Cars.co.za in South Africa. The reviewer opens up the video interestingly saying that he is pretty sure BMW M would never make a diesel vehicle, a turbocharged motor, or an SUV. Well those days are long gone as the X5 M50d is all of those things. The engine in the M50d is the same tri-turbo 3.0 liter inline-6 diesel engine used in the previous generation E70 X5 M50d model offering 381 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque. The South Africans decide to match it up against the Range Rover Sport model with the supercharged 5.0 liter direct injected V8. This is a battle of torque versus horsepower as the Range Rover sport has more power with 510 horsepower but less torque at 461 lb-ft. It also is a gasoline engine. The reviewer states it is heavier but our research shows it is roughly 200 pounds lighter so who knows what weight figures he is quoting. So what happens in the race? The X5 gets a clear jump only to be quickly reeled in and passed. The length of the race is not stated but appears to be quite short. A shorter race will favor a low end torque setup but despite this horsepower still wins. Those people who incorrectly state torque wins races need to watch this video as power wins.

    This footage is from our second fastest pass of the Chicago Wannagofast event. As luck would have it we lined up next to a brand new 2014 McLaren MP4-12c Spider. The McLaren is stock and our E63 AMG has a tune and prototype downpipes/catback Enjoy!

    I'm finding my STs are too soft for how low I am. Could I buy some stiffer springs to diminish recoil so I can keep my car as low as it is and avoid bottoming out when I load up for a road trip? With the GF, luggage, 2 gas cans of e85 and tools I find the car bottoms out on the exhaust when I hit any major bumps. Slowing to half the speed limit on freeways just to go over bumps in the road has become quite unsafe haha. Another question - if I purchase stiffer but shorter springs could I get a little lower and solve my recoil issue? Ideally I would like to go maybe 1/2" lower in the rear (front is fine) while keeping my ability to go up and solve the recoil. TIA

    Hello, I am looking to sell my 335I. The mileage currently sits at 62XXX. The reason I post it as that is due to the fact that I may drive it every now and then. It is a 2009 Alpine White Coupe with an Automatic Transmission. It has the premium and sport packages with the extended beige interior. This vehicle has been modified and all stock parts will also be included. The vehicle was in a fender bender in 2011. I have paperwork documenting what was replaced by a certified Geico auto body. In short it was the headlight/foglight/fender/lower control arm. No structural damage. Modifications: JB4 G5 ISO Board Cobb V2 Handheld Evolution Racewerks Competition Intercooler with Carbon Fiber Shroud Evolution Racewerks Charepipe with Tial 40mm BOV VRSF Downpipes Muffler Delete Coolingmist 2.2gallon Methanol Kit with JB4 FSB for Safety--Dual Nozzle Setup Burger Motorsports DCI Apex Race Wheels ARC-8 17x9.5 square with 255/40/17 Front and 275/40/17 rear Bilstein PSS10 Coilovers Currently Have the rear seat pulled out and in storage as I never have anyone ride in the back. Stock Suspension/wheels/intake box/charge pipe/intercooler will be included with sale. Open to offers and trades. No low ballers please. I have not checked on the status of the title however as I stated previously minor cosmetic damage only.

    I'm guessing this is a stupid question but I'd rather be safe than sorry. I learned that my car currently has Renntech short tube headers and I want long tube headers. Will I need to have their tune adjusted after the change? I plan on using these: http://www.eurocharged.com/products/mercedes-tuning/e-class/e63/arh-long-tube-headers-detail

    Xearom3 started a thread For Sale: RBs, VK DP's, BMS DCI in Buy/Sell - Parts
    Doing a single conversion on my 135i, so I'm selling off what I don't need now that the project has gotten a good start. (link in my sig) -RB Turbos for 135i - $2500 OBO Bought them new back in March of 2013, they have around 8k miles on them. I ran about 18psi, rarely any more than that. No leaks/smoke/issues out of them the whole time I've owned them. I made 478whp on my setup on 93 + meth. Upon removal there is no shaft play in them and everything looks fine except the wastegates do rattle a bit, but that should be easy to correct with adjustment. Once paid for, it will take me a day or 2 to get them shipped as I still need to source a box and packing materials. Honestly, I do not think they need to be rebuilt but I believe Rob does offer the service for $500 and I would be happy to send them directly to Rob if someone were to want to have them rebuilt. I will also take more pictures/different angles if anyone would like. -VK DP's - offer Used for 15k-ish. Fitment is ok. Doesn't include the o2 sensors pictured, or any bolts, fasteners, v-bands, or gaskets. Not sure what these are worth any more. Just shoot me an offer. -BMS DCI - offer Used for 15k-ish miles. In dire need of cleaning. Worked fine, even dirty. They are a little beat up from uninstall/reinstall. Just shoot me an offer, will have to see what these cost to ship.

    The G63 6x6 AMG is an absolutely insane monster of a vehicle that is basically a twin turbo all wheel drive German tank with power sent to six wheels. Brabus is importing these G63's as MBUSA does not at $850k+ a pop. What you may not know is that Weistec is also importing these 6x6 G63 AMG's. Not only are they importing them but they are also upgrading them with the bevy of tuning parts available in the Weistec M157 AMG engine catalog. Take a moment to let this sink in. You can in theory have a 6x6 G63 AMG with upgraded Weistec M157 turbochargers sending somewhere in the region of 700 horsepower to all six wheels. That much power moving 9000 pounds of six wheeled German metal? Yes, please! The pockets necessary to get a 6x6 G63 AMG and then modify it on top obviously need to be deep. Very, very, very, very, deep to make a point of emphasis. If you have the money these photos below certainly make a strong argument for acquiring this vehicle and upgrading the turbochargers. The exclusivity is worth every penny. WEISTEC | G63 6X6 Our ECU tune has surpassed the 600 wheel horsepower mark on a completely stock vehicle. Up to 608 WHP | 660 WTQ Downpipe and Exhaust Replacing factory downpipes delivers significant gains in power, throttle response, and exhaust tone. Up to 645 WHP | 724 WTQ Turbocharger Upgrade More power to an already potent platform, our turbocharger upgrades are available for your V8 Biturbo AMG. Up to 730 WHP | 730 WTQ

    This video below features an Active Autowerke supercharged M3 we already saw in action this month. It helps put the previous video in context though as this Gen II Level III supercharged DCT E92 M3 takes on a stock BMW M S63TU twin turbo V8 motor in an F13 M6. In the previous video the M3 ran a modified F10 M5 and the race was basically even. In this video the M3 pulls fairly quickly and decisively on the stock M6. What this goes to show is just how big of a difference there is between a stock M5/M6 S63TU and a bolt on one. Additionally, that an Active Autowerke Level III supercharged car is much stronger than a stock M6 even from a first gear roll.
