    Yes, it has.

    In Germany there are already tuners offering the remap of the standard V10 to about 630hp (at the crank).

    For me the V10 Plus would not be worth the additional money - in...
  2. The lap time is obviously 7:27:88.

    The lap time is obviously 7:27:88.
  3. M4 GTS Nürburgring Nordschleife lap - video

    Here's the 7:28:88 lap of the M4 GTS as driven by Jörg Weidinger who is a BMW chassis engineer and Driving Experience instructor.

    Note that the speed limits that were in force this year did not...
  4. To be fair, there are a few ESS supercharger...

    To be fair, there are a few ESS supercharger customers in the R8 V10 camp in other forums and they're very happy with the kit.

    I've also had my shares of problems with ESS on the 335i they tried...
  5. Yes, very uncomfortable and the sitting position...

    Yes, very uncomfortable and the sitting position is not ideal. It's not as bad as with the older generation Lambos which were really bizarre in how you sat in them (kind of like a frog with legs...
  6. That would also be my opinion, as someone based...

    That would also be my opinion, as someone based in Europe.

    MTM has an excellent reputation here for VAG products (i.e. Audi, Volkswagen etc.). I am a customer of theirs too with my R8 V10,...
  7. People I know personally. I also spoke to a local...

    People I know personally. I also spoke to a local tuner who reprogrammed my 530d and he also admitted that these problems are pretty common.
  8. I wonder if the transmission was upgraded too? I...

    I wonder if the transmission was upgraded too? I know of a few tune-only RS6 and several of them have issues with the transmission after the tuning.
  9. I know a few and they're actually really nice...

    I know a few and they're actually really nice people.
  10. Well, considering that the Mustang is not sold in...

    Well, considering that the Mustang is not sold in the UK I cannot really see how Evo could have included it in their comparison. Moot point then, really, at least from a British perspective.

    It's...
  11. The video is really excellent. The articles in...

    The video is really excellent. The articles in the magazine itself too - I enjoyed reading them a lot a few weeks back when they came out.

    And the Cayman GT4 is a fantastic car. Mid-engine,...
  12. General: The current Mini John Cooper Works got quite a...

    The current Mini John Cooper Works got quite a beating in the most recent "supertest" of the German magazin "sport auto". Too big, too fat, wallowing suspension, inappropriate tires, loads of...
  13. It would be cool to have both options, as with...

    It would be cool to have both options, as with the previous generation.

    But it's quite understandable why Audi did not offer the manual option any more. The percentage of customers who opted for...

    In their review, Evo stated that you do feel a difference between the two, and that the 570S is more playful and more fun to drive than its more focused big brother. Also easier to get into - which...

    Evo did a nice feature on the car:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaM6cyJOKVY

    Really nice to drive even if it's a bit down on power on its direct competitors. But as stated in the video, it's...
  16. I've seen the new R8 a few times in person now as...

    I've seen the new R8 a few times in person now as well. It does look better in real life than it does on the photos, IMO. Due to the now-half-sideblade I do prefer it in darker colours (grey / black)...

    exactly. With CCB, one trip into the gravel can cost you 10k, that's simply unreasonable.
  18. F22/F23/F87: I think the main issue is that BMW does not want...

    I think the main issue is that BMW does not want to intrude too much on the M3/M4 sales. You can easily get the M2 into that territory with a few tweaks here and there, plus we have no idea under...
  19. F32,F33,F36,F82,F83: Well, one can only try. Most people are stupid,...

    Well, one can only try. Most people are stupid, that's nothing new. I have no intention in participating in any such unreflected mediocrity though.
  20. F32,F33,F36,F82,F83: That's for sure. But unfortunately people just...

    That's for sure. But unfortunately people just throw all lap times in a big pot, stir it once and compare all the times in this mess. That doesn't have any real added value.

    Sport Auto usually...
  21. F22/F23/F87: To answer the question about the engine...

    To answer the question about the engine denomination: BMW has chosen to call it an "N55" similar to the M235i and not to give it a specific "S"-denomination. Whether the changes to the internals...
  22. F32,F33,F36,F82,F83: It's great this car is made, even if it's...

    It's great this car is made, even if it's absurdly expensive and - from what I've read so far - the weight benefit is only about 30kg. The suspension and aero tuning is well done, though, even if I'm...

    Absolutely, it's at the bottom end of trash rags in Germany.

    It would be interesting to make an investigation into whether anyone at Autobild shortened BMW stock before the article appeared. You...

    That is ridiculous to the extreme and obviously a stunt to squeeze lots of legal bills from a naive teenager.

    As a lawyer myself I feel even more outraged as it reflects badly on my own...
  25. No, not really. It's a simple reprogramming of...

    No, not really. It's a simple reprogramming of the car's ECU as hundreds of tuners do on a regular basis.

    There have been quite a few cars - sportscars in particular - that have a dyno detection...
