    The F10 M5 is a pretty quick car even in stock form despite its porky weight. Once all that mass is moving the car is tough to beat from a roll partially due to the dual clutch transmission shift speed and also partially due to its big turbo punch. Obviously, it is much faster than a stock 335i but the 335i it races from a roll in the video you are about to watch is not stock. It features upgraded twin turbos although it is a mild upgrade using the OEM turbo housings. The 335i also has BMS JB4 G5 ISO piggyback with complimentary flash tuning courtesy of the BimmerBoost flash software. It is nice to see users benefit from BimmerBoost's software development to open up tuning for the platform. Clearly @Sick335 is showing his appreciation in practice . The 335 ends up pulling up top decisively against the M5. The power figures between the two are likely fairly close but the 335's power to weight advantage is far too great for the M5 to overcome. Hopefully the M5 owner gets a tune on his car and this comparison can take place again so the M5 can show what it is capable of.

    Does anyone know anything about this thing? Apparently it shares an engine with either the ZR1 or ZL1. I saw an interview with a representative from the company and he said it had a dual clutch 6 speed, but in everything I've seen it had a manual. He also claimed 3 sec 0-60 and over 200 mph.Its obviously styled after 60's/70's era muscle cars. http://www.equus-automotive.com/

    An interesting drag race here between two cars we all know very well. The Nissan GTR and Porsche 911 Turbo are constantly compared to one another. Nissan fired the first volleys when they made sure the world knew they were testing the GTR's performance against the 911 Turbo. The GTR during development was constantly spotted with a 997.1 Turbo trailing the test team. Since both have twin turbo six cylinders, dual clutch transmissions, and all wheel drive, these comparisons are only natural. The 2014 GTR is no slouch performance wise especially in a straight line. It is capable of 11.0 second flat 1/4 mile runs with trap speeds in the 124-125 mile per hour range. The 911 Turbo is a bit of a conundrum as performance testing has shown inconsistent figures. EVO chose the 991 Turbo cabriolet for whatever reason which is the heaviest and slowest 911 Turbo model. The 991 Turbo has 520 horsepower from its 3.8 liter direct injected flat-6 motor which is 25 less than the 2014 GTR. At roughly 3600 pounds the 911 Turbo is about 250 pounds lighter than the GTR but heavier than the coupe. Speaking of the 991 Turbo coupe, independent testing on the 1/4 mile drag strip showed a 10.9 @ 126 1/4 mile pass. On paper, this drag race should be close. As the video shows however, it isn't that close. The 991 Turbo Cabriolet spanks the GTR. How do we explain this? We can't. The 991 Turbo Cabriolet is quicker to 60, quicker to 100, and 6 miles per hour faster through the standing kilometer. Sometimes the Porsche 991 Turbo performs like a beast, sometimes it doesn't. This time it certainly did.

    People tend to overblow recalls these days and recalls for faulty parts or software happen far more often than most realize. The new 1.8T motor has generally received praise and rightfully so as it is a solid design based on Volkswagen's tried and true EA888 four-cylinder architecture. There is no actual fault in the motor itself with but the 1.8T engines paired to the automatic transmission are susceptible to a fluid leak from the transmission cooler. The reason for this is due to a supplier O-ring material change. Volkswagen is offering to replace the faulty O-ring free of charge as of course they should. This is not a life or death matter as no injuries or fires have been reported but if you have the motor it is smart to get this replaced sooner rather than later to prevent any potential issues. VOLKSWAGEN ISSUES VOLUNTARY RECALL Apr 21, 2014 Herndon, VA (April 21, 2014) - Volkswagen considers the safety and satisfaction of its consumers and passengers as a top priority. As such, Volkswagen of America today notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it will be issuing a voluntary safety recall affecting the automatic transmission oil cooler on certain 2014 model year Volkswagen vehicles with a 1.8T engine and torque-converter automatic transmission. The recall affects 26,452 model year 2014 Volkswagen Jetta, Passat, Beetle and Beetle Convertible vehicles produced between February 1, 2014 and April 6, 2014. Of the 26,452 affected vehicles, 1,655 are customer cars. Due to a supplier material change during the production of the transmission oil cooler, the O-ring seals in affected vehicles are out of specification. If the O-rings do not completely seal between the oil cooler and transmission, a fluid leak may result. To fix the issue, Volkswagen will replace the defective O-ring with a new one, at no cost to the customer. No fires, accidents, injuries or vehicle fires have been reported. Volkswagen will notify all owners of affected vehicles and will instruct them to arrange for an appointment with an authorized Volkswagen dealer. About Volkswagen of America, Inc. Founded in 1955, Volkswagen of America, Inc., an operating unit of Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (VWoA) is headquartered in Herndon, Virginia.
