    • Active Autowerke tuned X71 X6M vs E60 M5 $1000 street drag race

      Here is a street race for some money between an X71 X6M and an E60 M5. The race is for money although only a $1000 which is hardly enough to even cover the modifications on the cars. The two cars race on a city street with people behind them shutting down the traffic so obviously do not try this at home. The race is from a stop and so in theory should favor the X6M with its all wheel drive against the rear wheel drive E60 M5 on street tires.


      The X6M features the Active Autowerke ECU tune and also their downpipes. Since this is a money race the E60 M5 modifications are not mentioned. However, with the way the E60 M5 pulls after the launch and the way the power comes on it certainly feels like the car has nitrous. It's definitely modified whatever those modifications happen to be.

      Take a look and decide for yourself:

        You didn't read the OP?

        The M5 pulled it really well. Made me wonder about its mods considering its on street tires and this is a dig race.

        Ooops. Just clicked on the vid and didnt read the info. Pretty suprised that m5 pulled the x6m from a dig. I assume they ran 1/4 mile instead of 1/8th. How close was it btw? M5 by 3 cars?

        It was close until 'something' happened with the M5 and it just flat out pulled.

        if the x6m was tune only then the m5 just needs FBO and a tune. or it could have been supercharged.

        The black M5 is not spraying..
        Its a friend car. I think he is awaiting approval to join the boards.
        The video is mine btw, I didnt make it private. I uploaded the video with the finish line footage a few days later and took down the original.
