    $26,000 car + $500 tune = 110mph trap speeds? Not too shabby at all.

    Jeeze, the F80 looks like a big old stumbling pig on ice skates after watching the E30 take a lap. By no means apples to apples, but a fun comparison.

    Great motor, but I'd love it a whole lot more if they could deliver it in a sedan or hatch....

    Yes, really. You're one inattentive driver or piece of road debris away from becoming a 300 yard long smear on the highway.

    Yup, the inevitable is more a matter of 'when' than 'if'. Hopefully no one innocent is hurt in the process.

    LOL @ $100k 996 Turbo owner buying the shop. Lets be realistic; anyone can buy one of these sub $40k now. A new 3 series with some options is a more expensive car.

    Also, the tech can say w/e the...

    Are they bringing the hatch to the US? The sedan looks like a f'ing abortion, in my opinion, but the hatch is a sex machine!

    Does this, more or less, bring us to Turbo S power? Are there any engine hardware differences between the Turbo and the S or is it tune only?
  11. Is this a like vs like fuel/tune comparison? I'd...

    Is this a like vs like fuel/tune comparison? I'd believe this is a 91 octane vs 100 octane tune, but 60whp over a car that is already tuned is HUGE if it is the only change.

    Edit: I see the...

    Same here... I know the vw/audi 2.0t has been around for nearly a decade with a few revisions, but I'm not sure what they were and when they happened.... anyone care to drop some knowledge?

    Just to be clear, you're comparing a 10 year old motor that was available in sub $30k cars to a brand new motor in a $50k car?

    Wow, I don't think anyone will be shocked to see the Gt2 RS put down a record time, but I had no idea the SLS BS was so capable. Good video.

    What is the story with the motor in the rendering? 2 smaller 2-valve cylinders and a larger 4-valve cylinder?

    Great little chart... Pretty easy to see where the Z28 is winning it on this. What I'd love to see, and I'm sure they could do with their GPS data, is an animated version that included the little...

    Good point... this car will only get faster around the road course as you throw more power at it for a long time. I don't think I'd go past a H/C/I LS7, but that should be enough for over 600whp...

    Are those the standard intakes? The whole car is sex, but I'm loving the rear fenders in particular.

    Well, you quoted the gap in 0 - 100 times as your reasoning for why this time is hard to believe....

    Number of times "0 - anything" comes into play on a road course: Zero.

    One thing I...
  20. You guys must be new to the road course thing.......

    You guys must be new to the road course thing.... this isn't a drag race from one turn to the next. I've seen 120hp spec miatas, that would be lucky to run a 15 second 1/4, lap 600hp street cars...

    Impressive gains. These may end up being a tuning bargain with a few more years of Mercedes depreciation under their belt.

    That is a pretty broad, generalized and, most importantly, incorrect statement. It applies in a straight line, most of the time, but start throwing in curves and it is a WHOLE different ball game.
