    • The quickest and fastest F10 M5 1/4 mile time stands at 11.0 @ 128

      We have a new overall F10 M5 record set this past weekend at the Famoso dragstrip in California. This M5 features a tune from BMS (Burger Tuning), exhaust system (manufacturer and exhaust pieces are not specified), drag tires, and 100 octane race gas. The result with bolt ons is an impressive 11.073 @ 128.68. Yes, that is less than a 1/10 of a second from breaking into the 10 second range.


      The 1.706 60 foot shows a very good launch and the car is breaking 100 miles per hour in the 1/8. Some minor tweaks and we will have our first 10 second F10 M5.

      Congratulations to the owner and BMS on the new record.

        The M5 has yet to show upgraded turbo performance and tuning the DME is in its infancy. The jury is still out on which is better. Considering the top mount turbos and higher redline paired to a DCT I hardly think this is over.

        The m157 has been running mid 10's and low to mid 130 traps for almost 2 years now don't see how this Is a win for the m5. That's also done on stock turbo with similar upgrades to this car

        The M157 has been out longer. This is hardly where the M5 stops.

        Impressive, most impressive. In a Star Wars mood as they are getting ready for principal photography. That F10 M5 was rolling, hard. Well done.

        The m157 has been out longer by what 3 months? The AMG's have been running these times for 2 years so a few months is hardly a reason. Of course its not where the m5 stops but do you think its where the E63 stops? They both have there advantages m5 has a higher redline and dct while e63 has bigger displacement and stronger transmission

        Don't know if this car has downpipes...also...like I said...you're comparing a piggyback tune to a flash tune. I'm not in any way trying to put down the M157...just trying to keep things in perspective. That's all.

        It's out a bit longer and the tuning is more evolved.

        The M157 has more displacement, so? Is the M157 beating GTR's or something? Aren't they DCT, higher revving, and smaller displacement?

        This is so far from over it has barely even started.

        Jon @ BMS (plus size driver) raced a fast tuned E63 at the runway. The E63 has tuning, downpipes, and race gas. Jon got a bad start but stayed in his blind spot up to his 155mph limiter. I meant to rematch the E63 but didn't get around to it. Next event. Click here to enlarge

        LOL thats makes zero sense. Is the S65 beating GTR's ? Arent they lower revving DCT and smaller displacement? because its fair to compare a 4 door family car to godzilla. If were on that subject do you think the s63tu will be beating GTR's?

        Your reasoning of gearing + redline = God is something you always pull out and doesnt always work out. You can go about getting power many different ways and the only thing that matters is the final result you can go about it in a gallardo revving high with decent gearing or an LSX iron block/Power Glide and make retarded amount of hp/torque and each one can be faster then the other depending how much you want to invest. Both the M157 and the S63tu will never receive the aftermarket attention of the GTR/gallardo/LS motors those platforms are just superior and when someone just wants something stupid fast they are not going to dump 100's of thousands into a m5 or E63.

        Not bad ! But the track times tell the whole story here 10.6 @ 135 is just a good amount faster then 11.0 @ 128. Either way both are stupid fast

        They are two different cars. The M5 is a drivers car that has nice luxury whereas the E63 is a softer luxury car to me. Neither one was designed for drag racing, they were designed for the highway, period. They both do excellent at many things, but the M5 whether it's slower or not is a better platform to me. No bashing here as I love the E63 but I find it to be soft. The motor is amazing however. If I'm going for a softer luxury car with brute force, well... I go for my Jaguar. if I'm going for a big ass sledgehammer that has a sports inspired solid soul I go M5.
        The M5 after more support is around will trump the MB.

        Gearing and redline doesn't work how?

        Gallardos make stupid HP when turbo'd why?

        The M157 and S63TU comparison is hardly over. The AMG's has displacement but that's it. Everything else favors the S63TU namely the turbo placement. If it has bigger turbos the displacement gap doesn't mean much of anything.

        I'd say the E63 is more of a drag car than the M5.

        I didnt say it doesnt matter what i said is its not the end all be all ! Its one way of going about to getting to the goal of crazy power/speed. Their are plenty of other ways and each of them works and can be better than the other depending on the investment. You have plenty of LS's that dont rev much over 7000 rpm and run through sloppy but strong powerglides that will destroy any TT gallardo on the strip. The AMG has displacement and a stronger trans with options on the market NOW not promised tomorrows that dont happen for a while. The S63tu has what 500 extra rpm and a DCT? We saw in the vid of a tune+DP m5 vs Tune+DP E63 the MCT didnt lose much if any ground to the DCT and beat it while making similar HP but more torque

        RPM is how you make up for displacement and the DCT is still the quicker shifting box. Like I said we will see what happens this is hardly over. The M5 is improving and that's great. We'll see what the turbo upgrades bring.

        I'd agree with that. But to me as a drivers car the M5 is where it's at. Neither were designed for drag racing but they both do great. MB have the nasty reputation of torquey motors for food reason, they're beasts. And with 4matic it's a big advantage. AWD is the great equalizer for sure, I have laid down 9s on all seasons on my old Talon so traction isn't the issue of a RWD. They both do great but the S63 hasn't even started yet. Hell the RS7 is king of the drags from Europe of were talking big body. Just a tune in mid 10s.... dayyyum

        & I agree 1000% with both statements ! But then guy x could pull out his credit card and bore and stroke for even more displacement up to 7.3 liters have an iron block and make 2000 wheel hp with a monster blower ... then guy z will take out a loan build his top end rev out to 9300 rpm and switch to a short final drive ratio ... You get what im saying they are 2 different ways of going about the same thing - Stupid Fast !
        Im excited to see what they do with the s63tu I just cant believe BMW made the ecu that hard to crack ! Maybe they should get into the security business lol no internal leaks either from employees

        Agreed. Displacement doesn't matter anymore with the evolution of turbos. My 2.0 puts out over 600 and I could easily go 800 on C16. But it revs to 9300 and that's where I agree with sticky. The high redline allows me to stay in boost longer and therefore have a bigger power band. I'm half tempted to run it at shift sector just to piss people off.

        I honestly think the majority of BMW aftermarket tuners should forget about the s63tu let it be fast FBO but focus on a Twin Turbo S85 with a DCT swap like you mentioned in the other thread. Lighter body, more displacement, higher revs, same stupid fast trans basically WINNING in every category .. then swap it into a gutted E92 .. z4 doesnt do it for me
