    ummm? 13.9 and 13.6? I think he meant, 12.9 and 12.6? My Gti stock 1/4 mile time is 13.9 at 101... and my cobalt is about the same @ 104. I want to see the TTRS

    Keep in mind that they are testing in a airfield tarmac not a 1/4 Track.

    The TT-RS is not a true competitor to the 1M although some magazine suggest it. That comparo is just to sell copies.

    Its a 1/4 mile race between the RS3 and the 1M. You can see the advantage of the Audi AWD system in a real world road/tarmac as opposed to a 1/4 mile track.

    The RS3 wins the match but the 1M is railing in the RS3 as they reach the 1/4 mile. Trap speed for the 1M (@ 106MPH) was 3mph higher than the RS3

    I do understand there is a lot more to the 1M than straight line speed, but they should have equipped it with a JB4 from the factory!

    My times are unscientific (steering wheel), but I have done significantly better than that time on normal tarmac Click here to enlarge ... and I'm at altitude .. with a fat heavy car (it is with me inside!)

    The 1M needs wider rubber.

    AutoExpress drag races the BMW E82 1M Coupe against the DSG Audi RS3

    This is a great drag race to see but not really all that surprising. The Audi wins the race by virtue of its AWD launch and DSG transmission. Whomever was driving the 1M launched poorly. The 1M had the higher trap speed by 3 MPH so it is the faster car. Makes you wonder how the 1M would do with a DCT transmission. The video calls the Audi an automatic (not this again) and suggests it would win by a larger margin in the rain (as if drag racing the rain is smart or desired) leading both comments to sound, well, stupid.

    They didn't use a drag strip for timing. The point is just to look at the time and MPH difference not the final numbers as Brits don't know how to drag race or time properly.

    Maybe one day when BMW produces a proper sporty version of the Z4 again there will be something to compare against the TT-RS.
