  1. I'd love to hear how they managed to make so much...

    I'd love to hear how they managed to make so much power on a 335is with just software when Cobb's gains were barely noticeable on my 335is. Also, minor correction but you have the 335is listed as...
  2. Dinan has never catered to the value-seeker. We...

    Dinan has never catered to the value-seeker. We get people in our shop all day long wanting Dinan stuff, it sells very well including their engine tunes. My best friend's father has a Dinan tuned E34...
  3. I really do think there was something wrong with...

    I really do think there was something wrong with the car I drove, I've only been in one other current-gen Cayenne (V6 hybrid) and I'm trying to remember if the shifts were any quicker. In any case, I...
  4. Aside from the big difference in weight, I...

    Aside from the big difference in weight, I imagine the PDK helped the Macan a lot. I spent most of yesterday driving a Techart Magnum Cayenne Turbo with the 8 speed automatic and I was consistently...
  5. Read up on the Multimatic DSSV dampers the Z/28...

    Read up on the Multimatic DSSV dampers the Z/28 is using. They really are a big step forward in damping technology, take a look at the list of professional racecars using this exact same type of...

    I think weight is the biggest advantage the McLaren has against any E90/E92. It's like 3,200lbs!
  7. F22/F23: I actually didn't wait for the image to load and...

    I actually didn't wait for the image to load and for some strange reason I assumed you would post that insane turbo four BMW built for F1 in the 80s.

    I agree about the M133 being an extremely...
  8. F22/F23: It feels much more nimble than my brother's F30,...

    It feels much more nimble than my brother's F30, I don't know how much of that is due to size/weight and how much is down to the new bushings, control arms, power steering calibration, tires, etc....
  9. F22/F23: BMW sells a Performance muffler for the 135i...

    BMW sells a Performance muffler for the 135i which sounds a lot like the M235i. You can get it from your dealer or find it cheaper online.
  10. F22/F23: M235i has much more space, I owned a 135i for...

    M235i has much more space, I owned a 135i for three years and I really liked it at lot but I got tired of always bumping my head (6'3"). The M235i only has a tiny bit more head room (still wish the...
  11. F22/F23: Please no, I spent the weekend in our shop's CLA...

    Please no, I spent the weekend in our shop's CLA 45 (~10 hour road trip and two track days) and I just test drove the M235i an hour ago. It's tough to say which car feels more powerful because I...
  12. True, I forgot they were using cylinder...

    True, I forgot they were using cylinder deactivation, but even the C6 Corvettes got great mileage and I don't think they were able to deactivate cylinders. My friend's base C6 manages almost double...
  13. I don't have high hopes for the 4.0TT's fuel...

    I don't have high hopes for the 4.0TT's fuel economy for a few reasons. The Corvette gets such great mileage largely because it's a light car and because it has long gears allowing it to stay at low...
  14. Of course, those shifts are just nuts!

    Of course, those shifts are just nuts!
  15. The 991 has a smaller, less powerful motor and is...

    The 991 has a smaller, less powerful motor and is a heavier car than the 997 4.0 and yet it still hits 100km/h full second quicker. That is the power of tighter gearing used in conjunction with a...
  16. Continues to boggle my mind that British...

    Continues to boggle my mind that British journalists think it's ok to test cars in the wet and think the results mean anything. Watch the 991 vs C7 braking test again and pay attention to how much...
  17. M10: The fuel they used back then was very different...

    The fuel they used back then was very different than what F1 cars currently burn. I just found out that the fuel modern F1 cars run is practically identical to what you can get at any regular pump....
  18. Motor Trend's competition is all about finding...

    Motor Trend's competition is all about finding the car that's the easiest to drive fast, but I've heard from a lot of people that in the specific case of the 991 Carrera, the 4 models somehow have...
  19. And to your earlier point about DCT, one of my...

    And to your earlier point about DCT, one of my cars has a BMW DCT and I still think automatics are superior for certain types of vehicles. AMG's customers don't necessarily want the absolute maximum...
  20. ...uhh what exactly do you want us to explain...

    ...uhh what exactly do you want us to explain about those cars? They're faster from 0-60 because of all wheel drive but are much more boring to drive because of it. All wheel drive adds weight, it...
  21. I seriously think German brands in general...

    I seriously think German brands in general underestimate how huge the US is and how many of us there are living here. We will buy anything you put up for sale as long as you give it a reasonable...
  22. F22/F23: I am an M3 owner :) it wouldn't bother me one...

    I am an M3 owner :) it wouldn't bother me one bit, but that's probably because I would have bought an M2 instead of such a thing was available. I came close to getting a 1M but I already had an N55...
  23. F22/F23: Why should that matter? At the end of the day,...

    Why should that matter? At the end of the day, BMW's profit margin on an M2 and an M3/M4 would be almost the same so why would they care if they sold a few less M3/M4s because those same people...
  24. 981: If you haven't driven one of these, go do so now....

    If you haven't driven one of these, go do so now. I test drove one last week before I picked up my M3 and it absolutely blew me away. The manual gear change is so sweet and precise and there is zero...
  25. S63/S63TU: He's looking at the point where horsepower and...

    He's looking at the point where horsepower and torque cross over which is supposed to be at 5252RPM in each of the runs.
