    What exactly is there to be butt hurt about? MotorTrend just tested the new X6M, it was quicker in the 1/4 mile than the C63S, M3, and ATS-V. Not to mention the X6M was quicker around Big Willow than the F80 M3. I am sure the X5M has very similar performance. This guy needs to brush up on his car knowledge.

    You make a point but if you are going to go to large wheels (HRE's wheels are light for the size) wouldn't you go for a setup that doesn't compromise entirely what the car is supposed to be?

    The first car looks entirely like a photoshop job to me. Is that an actual car? Also, if you're going to put comically large wheels on a car, upgrade your brakes so they don't look comically small. Neither of these sets have any business on a car that is supposed to be about light weight and efficiency.

    This video is not being posted due to the cinematography. With no camera views from inside the cars we usually dismiss this stuff as junk. It is not hard to get a couple Go Pros these days and show clear HD video. However, the commentary of the butthurt AMG owner is glorious to behold. Which of these cars is faster stock for stock? The W205 C63 AMG S is both quicker and faster. However, as it is rear wheel drive it takes a bit more skill to launch. Need proof? A stock W205 C63 went 12.5 @ 119 in the 1/4 mile. A stock W205 C63 AMG S went 11.6 @ 120 on a better 60 foot. Almost a full second difference due to launch quality. A stock X5M will run low 12's at close to 115. You can look at a Dinan tuned example in the 1/4 mile (because it performs almost like stock anyway) here. If you ran the cars from a roll, the X5M would lose every single time. They are not running from a roll though and that means the traction advantage is with the all wheel drive 5000+ pound behemoth. The X5M in the first dig race gets the hit and wins easily. The second run has an even start and the X5M just edges ahead. That is the end of the racing and then the excuses begin to pour out from the AMG owner. First, he talks about how he put $50k down. Yet, he didn't spend any of that on drag tires or driving lessons which is where the money clearly needs to go. The AMG owner then asks for a 60-180 run. Seriously? You don't even know you have a 155 mph limiter on there? Plus 130 miles an hour is plenty to show who has the stronger top end. The AMG owner says in Germany a 1/4 mile doesn't mean anything. Well, even the Germans probably know you should know how to launch if you're going to run on the street from a dig against an all wheel drive car. Plus the 1/4 mile specs should tell him his best race is a roll. He's using the German argument here (poorly) to say the car is designed for the Autobahn. The X5M is from a German company as well though so he's reaching for anything. The guys on the side of the X5M did not give him a roll race and said they wanted to run again but in a 1/4 mile. So, they ran their race and won. The C63 guy says he has an E63 on order after that. Good, because it looks like he needs the all wheel drive of the E63 to mask his driving and his bullshit. Lulz

    Here you have two black BMW i8's. One is a matte black wrapped car that is also bagged which wears Vossen rims. The other black i8 has the factory black paint and HRE wheels. It is also lowered but not with bags. It retains the factory suspension design. Here are the Vossen specs: 22 inches is the same size as the HRE wheels. With the more exaggerated drop the wheels looks bigger on the matte black i8 but somehow also tacky. An i8 on bags? Isn't this supposed to be a sports car? If one is going for attention this setup might fit the bill: Here are the HRE specs: The HRE setup just looks classier here and also will offer better handling performance. The car is not comically low but definitely still has an aggressive stance. Make your choice:
