    The Best and Worst of 2010 Award List

    Click here to enlarge

    2010 was a great year, namely because it was our first. A lot of changes took place and during this first year we had some great moments as well as some that made you shake your head. We feel this compilation reflects the best and worst that 2010 had to offer in our respective areas of coverage. Enjoy the list:


    Best Performance Achievement of the Year

    Winner: djborya sets new overall BMW 60-130 record

    Djborya has had quite a year running incredible 1/4 and 60-130 times in his turbo E30. We saw several records fall this year but becoming the only BMW in the 4's 60-130 is rarefied air indeed. Congratulations Boris!

    Runner-up: Mikewads and dodger63 both first in the 10's for their respective platforms, E92 M3 and C63 AMG.

    This was a tough one as we could not choose favorites, so we have a tie. Mikewads raised the bar for the E92 M3 in 2010 running record 60-130's as well as being the first to hit 10's. Dodger63 with his MHP powered C63 was the first to hit 10's on his platform as well as run some record 60-130's himself. We have to call this one a draw.


    Story of the Year


    Winner: Discovery Automotive destroys customer's car along with what was left of their reputation

    This was our most popular story of the year by far. Nothing even came close, all the major blogs picked it up and it really vaulted BimmerBoost into the mainstream. After this went up Discovery Automotive took their site down and has not been heard from since. Hopefully, their doors have been closed, permanently.

    [B]Runner-up/B]: ASR and the Twin Turbo M5 debacle

    ASR had a pretty rough year getting thrown out from BimmerBoost for basically conning members out of their money with promises they could not deliver. This story is long from over but this was one of the most important developments of the year.


    Article of the Year


    Winner: S65 vs. S54

    This was in our opinion far and way the best BMW article written in 2010. This article has made it onto every BMW forum, even those who refuse to acknowledge the existence of BimmerBoost, and has received routine praise throughout the community. A little self-serving, but we firmly believe it was the best of 2010.

    Runner-up: Nitrous Express EFI Nitrous Kit / Progressive Controller / Acces. **FULL REVIEW/DIY**

    Former_boosted_IS put out a good amount of top quality reviews and DIY's in 2010. This is just one of his many articles but we feel this one is the best. It explains why he chose the setup he chose along with the data to back it up. It is incredibly detailed and simply sets the standard by which all other reviews and DIY's are measured.


    Best Performance Development of the year:


    Winner: C63 AMG Black Series to get twin turbo V8.

    Several places are reporting this is the case and if true, we can all mark this down as the moment Mercedes surpassed BMW as the enthusiast brand of choice.

    Runner-up: Mercedes to expand AMG lineup

    The good news just keeps on pouring in from Mercedes. From more AMG models to a potential 911 rival, 2011 is poised to be the year of the Benz.


    Worst Performance Development of the Year:


    Winner: 1M Coupe gets stock N54

    BMW, you royally screwed this up and sold out. This marks the end of the M brand as we know it, thanks for the memories. Yes, it will sell, good for you but you lost our respect.

    Runner-up: BMW begins to focus on FWD platforms.

    It was nice knowing you, good luck in the future Toyota.


    Best Quote of the Year

    Winner:

    Stupidest Quote of the Year


    Winner:

    We will not even do a runner-up for this category as the stupidity of this quote deserves the attention all to it itself. Bravo Gustav, bravo.


    Poster of the Year

    Winner: LostMarine

    The guy posts a lot and has supported the site, what can you say?

    Runner-up: DBFIU

    The most underrated posts on the site, great mix of info and color commentary. Seriously, appreciate it.


    OT Poster of the Year


    Winner: e92

    If you have ever ventured into OT, you know this needs no explanation.

    Runner-up: e92

    He carried the OT forum by himself the first months, he deserves it.


    Most Annoying Member


    Winner: GG///M3

    Beep beep beep beep beep.

    Runner-up: GG///M3

    hi5


    Thread of the Year

    Winner: RB 335 vs....

    This one deserves it, clearly, even spilling onto other forums. An epic thread that evolved into who knows what with a little bit of everything thrown in.

    Runner-up: Interesting Procede Gossip

    If there was a thread that was more controversial or got more debate flowing from both sides we do not know what it is... doubt our server could handle it anyway.


    It was a great year and if we missed anything, we apologize, but this is what stood out to us. Thank you for a great 2010 and here is to a great 2011!

    Before I put this up on the front page considering a couple other categories.

    Product of the Year, but did not get any suggestions? I'm thinking maybe the Rob Beck turbos FTW?

    Tuner of the Year, thinking about doing this one but we may be criticized as showing favoritism if a vendor is picked.

    Also, engine the year, this might be good.

    If you guys like this I will definitely turn it into a yearly thing, could call it the Golden BB's or some cheesy award name which might be fun.

    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    For product of the year it would be something car related.

    For engine of the year it would be an OEM motor.

    Product and engine of the year are good ones. My vote for engine goes to the amg 63 v8. It has set some sick na numbers.

    I agree, leave the tuner of the year alone.

    LOL 2nd that.

    RB turbos for Product of the Year. Just look at all the work he did to make them what they are. Even made his own waste-gates, he is a smart man.

    I would not do tuner of the year, that is hard to quantify and will lead to lots of fire.

    Engine of the year would be for stock engines only, from any manufacturer?

    From BMW or Mercedes for now, Audiboost likely came along too late to be a part of it.

    I would say Rob deserves product of the year. He really put his all to get the aftermarket together on turbos for the N54. He gets my nomination.

    Engine of the year. That's a tough one, I'm going to have to think about that.

    Well there have to be more products than just the RB's that you guys feel are worth it.

    I was thinking the MHP headers for the C63 could get runner up.

    Yep, RB turbos for product of the year.

    Engine.... anyone like the Mercedes Bi-turbo V12? That is my dream engine combo. Perfect mechanical balance, great noise, tons of torque and revving ability......

    Not its year, when it starts routinely getting upgraded turbos and doing some significant things it will be in the running.

    I do. Probably buying an SL65 and getting MHP tune.

    Ummmm....fuel pump issues, maybe? BMW might want to release an engine with enough R & D to know that the fuel pumps are inadequate.
