    So this morning I was on my way to class when this kid in a scion tc past by me. He apparently hit a patch of black ice and lost control of his vehicle. I saw the whole thing coming, but there was nothing I could do to save my car, he smacked into me and sent us both flying off into a ditch on the side of the highway. I will find out for sure if the car is totaled or not in the next few days, but after talking to my body shop (whom I have a great relationship with) they are confident it will be totaled. This really sucks because my car was finally coming together I just installed bc racing coilovers a few weeks ago along with all the other mods done to the car. Thankfully I was not at fault so hopefully everything will be covered by his insurance, but this still sucks:( I really don't know what car to get next... I loved my m3, but I don't want to get another one while I am still in college, this whole thing just sucks I worked hard to get this car and get it where is was and now all of it is gone.

    Very interesting video here showing a pair of 991 Turbo S Porsches against a Lamborghini Aventador on the highway. The Aventador is a very fast car in stock form but has been a target for tuned German cars and obviously a vehicle like the Lamborghini makes for quite the measuring stick. Tuned M157 63 AMG's AMG's have been able to pull the Aventador on the highway. Now we have seen the Aventador run the new Porsche 991 Turbo S but it was not a highway matchup rather a standing kilometer drag race. The Turbo S by virtue of its launch wins the drag race but the Aventador has the slightly higher trap speeds at the 1/4 mile and kilometer marks. On paper, that means in a highway showdown the Aventador should beat the 991 Turbo S from a roll. In the video below you will see that is how it plays out. The white Porsche 991 Turbo S has a full Cargraphic exhaust system and the red Turbo S has a Cargraphic X-pipe. The Aventador also has an aftermarket exhaust system. The Aventador pulls up top as it should although the turbo torque of the 991 Turbo S gives it a slight edge down low also as it should. This race plays out as expected on paper and the Aventador gets a chance to show its top end strength.

    More and more 63 AMG's are producing over 600 wheel horsepower with just a tune on the M157 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 AMG platform. Now of course we have already seen this level of power and more from AMS on the platform as they showed over 600 wheel horsepower with the new 4Matic 63 AMG models. It is always nice however to see independent results verify tuner claims. This particular owner has a rear wheel drive 2012 E63 AMG and on 93 octane pump gas with just the AMS Alpha Performance ECU Tune managed 611 horsepower a 752 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. These are gains of 127 and 257 respectively. The torque gain in particular is hugely impressive. We all know the new turbo era motors get big gains with just a tune but these are truly monster tune only gains. Owner impressions: “I sent my ECU off to AMS on my 2012 E63 this week, quick turnaround time. Got it back today and all I can say is WOW! Already put 400 miles on the car today and I am thoroughly impressed. Baseline numbers on National Speed’s Dynojet were 484whp and 495 wtq After tune, 611WHP and 752WTQ (700HP and 864 TQ). This ECU tune has made this car into an absolute monster, I cannot keep my foot out of it. Still getting 24 MPG on the highway, but she’s got so much torque in all the gears. Car is so fun to drive, more fun than my stock ’09 GT-R was. I cannot wait until you guys get these cars to take E85, it will be insane. Thank you guys for all you do, you’ll have my continued business. I’m an AMS customer for life.”
