If it were a VF-540 kit ok, but for a 620??

Not gonna happen unfortunately. No way a V8 will be put into a 2-series. A IL6 would be possible, but with current emissions witch hunting a turbo engine is far more likely. Beefed-up N55 most...

F22/F23: M2 CSL with N54 would be the tits!

OMG BMW can still do it! I was about to lose hope!
Transmission cooler would be awesome, as long as it's comptible with other cooling upgrades such as PPK radiator (space contraints...)!!
Looks so. No info on the web whatsoever :( Makes winning the trivia even more a lottery.
Need the info to win a trip to Le Mans :)
Does anyone know which Audi will be the safety car at the 2013 edition of Le Mans? The RS6, RS4 or TT?

I have the ER Sports Oilcooler, the AR oilcooler in front of the radiator and the PPK radiator in the driver side footwell.
My observations are the following: The AR OC won't do much. At the time...

Hopefully it will happen when they got their ass handed to them by AMG oftenly enough.

Now convince BMW to put that engine in a reasonably prized, lightweight sportscar and you're my hero :)
We can't turn back time, unfortunately.

You know, if M announced a breathtaking sportscar comparable to a F458 with a screaming V8 for the price of an M3, I'd start saving yesterday. But if the S65 is the best they can come up with in NA...

Where did I say that? I just said that the engine is not the most important part of an M car and that they got it right with the 1M.
Actually I was at a little meet last weekend with 5 local 1Ms....

The "fast in corners" times are gone for BMW M. Now it's all about offsetting the massive weight with huge hp numbers.

The M3 laptime seems fluked. Only 0.7 seconds faster than a Focus ST? Maybe going in reverse with winter tires?
The track was probably wet.

2.4 seconds on a 1.20 laptime track is HUGE. That's worlds apart.
Shows how much of a beast the GTR is on the track despite its weight.

My words exactly. Or an M1 revival.

Front looks great, but rear quarterpanel not so good. Not aggressive enough to match the front.

Which is something I'm totally against. I can see it making sense when it comes to gearboxes, but freezing engine development and making them last several races is against the proper racing spirit...

In theory yes, but you end up with teams changing the car designs just so that it works best with the tires. It just gets too extreme as tires are arguably the most critical component of the car when...

There were times with two manufacturers. The problem was that half of the field was hopelessly behind when their tire brand did not work on a specific circuit. In the end this turned to a rubber war...

It's ridiculous how important tire management has become.
05-14-2013, 02:00 AM
Please do it!!
The first loss always feels terrible. Reminds me of my first car, a basic Golf III with a mere 90 hp. Yet I had put alot of time and quite some money into modding it. Until on a crossroad a lady...

Bloody hell! In China the factories dump their $#@! into the atmosphere without filters but we will soon be forced to drive a Prius!! But no-one dares to put pressure on China since their industry is...
