    I believe FabSpeed made something like 506whp with Headers and no cats + re-tune. The base car did something like 460whp.
    Thanks, I didn't see that dyno.

    IIRC the 458 was driven by the son of a very generous father, who let him beat on his baby all day. Sweet car. But I was happy to see SRanch335 go nose to nose with it. Click here to enlarge

    LOL at the people doubting the epicness of the 458. Too f*cking funny.

    The 335i could have 1000hp. It is still a hunk of sh*t compared to the 458.

    What are you guys talking about? The 335i is obviously the same as a Ferrari now. Oh, and a Supra too.

    Weird to see some of the comments in here.

    Unless you're just some rich yuppie that has no concept of car modifications, why would you be the least bit upset at a car beating you ( ANY car ). Confused ? Sure. Upset ? Uh, no. A real car enthusiast knows where their money is going and understands the reality of life. That reality is: There is ALWAYS someone faster. If you need your loss from another car to come by some stripped down race prepped car, or something valued much higher than your car, you're pathetic. If I chose to purchase a 458, I know what I should and shouldn't be able to beat ( when comparing stocks of course ). Once a car is modded, you're advised to expect the unexpected. This vid was a simple display of that. I would do exactly as another member here posted. Ask for mods, give my congrats and drive home happy as I came. You know, what REAL car enthusiasts do.

    Simply knowing the mods will stifle any ill feelings and educate you to the capabilities of a certain setup ( in case you were to run into something similar again ). This video was certainly suprising. That 335 is definitely a beast ! And you're right Sticky, that runway really looks tip top.

    Drag racing is an ego contest and in a lot of cases it comes down to who's prepared to spend more $$$.

    Losing sucks. Nobody races to lose, we all want to win, it's hard to top that adrenaline rush.

    I'm sure the 458 owner won't lose any sleep over the loss but he will most definitely remember this loss for a long time.

    He will also gain some respect for what BMW's are capable of and give it a second thought about running one again, especially if he's got his woman or mates in the car.

    Losing to an equally impressive supercar, even if by bus-lengths is easier to accept, but losing to an entry level non-///M 3 series? It's a peasants car by comparison.

    He's never going to run into an RB turbo upgraded 335 on race gas on the street.

    This thread is full of lawls. I'm sure the 458 owner was ready to straight up trade cars with the 335 after the 2nd race and the 335 owner politely refused because his car was faster...

    The first part of your statement makes sense, it's the second part that is stupid. If you owned a 458 Italia and were so super concerned with straightline racing, you can build it to crap on any 335 in existence with just a stock internal low boost turbo kit. So there's nothing to be upset about. I'd be more angry about not being able to afford a 458 Italia.
    Well the 458 owner was at the event, wasn't he? So he obviously cared. And he's for sure NOT amused to see his bella macchina get spanked by a lowly bimmer and the vids spread around on the Interwebs.

    And no, he probably doesn't care if it's a 335i or an M3...

    Ok, not all Ferrari owners are arrogant pieces of $#@!, there's a handful of them which are enthusiasts too like we are. Sadly that's the minority.

    So because he's there straight line racing must be all he cares about? He could not have been there to have fun?

    Why are you speaking for him and coming to conclusions for him? Many people here have stated if they had a 458 they wouldn't care. You want to think the 458 owner cares as if that elevates the 335 somehow.

    I think "we" gets thrown around liberally. A lot of 335 owners aren't enthusiasts as if they were they would understand the 458 is a whole different ballgame.

    I'm not elevating any car and no one debates the 458 is in a different ballpark. Still nice to see the underdog make a hit vs a big player, no? Click here to enlarge

    Cheer up. Didn't any blown M3's run the 458? The vids should make your day.

    Yes, sure. It could even be done with an LS swapped insert car here.

    I'm very familiar with a blown M3's performance. I'd rather have a 458 and keep it stock forever.

    Great results. That RB car is very quick.

    (Shiv's single vs 458 for reference. Race starts at 5:50.)



    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5P6ZkjWl_qo
    so.. a 650hp shiv driven 335 is slower than a 500hp RB BMS 335..?

    This thread is just like the Stage 3 C63 vs stock M5 thread.

    The only difference is that the "race" car (if 8k in mod's make it that) is 1/4 the price of the 458. Rather than the other way around.

    You are correct sir. I guess "Chest Thumping" when its a non stock Beemer beating a stock car is ok but not when a Merc does the spanking on a BMW....

    Im pretty sure there are plenty of 135s and 335s w RB turbos running around on meth+E85 and im pretty sure there are dynos of meth+e85 putting up better numbers than race gas.

    That's a needle in a 3-Series haystack to run into randomly on the street honestly.
