Thread: Damn...

    Default Damn...

    Went to Santa Pod yesterday with some club members on VXRonline

    Whilst in the queue I got chatting with a BMW owner (Carl)... he asked what car I was driving and I explained... he then asked if he could race against me, I asked what car he had.... he said a BMW 335D

    .... my worst nightmare, I asked if he had it remapped... Oh yes, he said.... .... 350 BHP and 550 Lb/Ft .....

    Ahh ****

    Here is the result of what happens when a remapped VXR races against a remapped BMW 335 DIESEL !!

    http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=6i0FIyuow7E

    Specifications

    BMW = 1/4 mile in 13.5 seconds : 105.75 MPH
    3.0 Twin Turbo Diesel
    Automatic Gearbox
    350 BHP
    550 Lb/Ft Torque

    VXR = 1/4 mile in 14.6 seconds : 98.49 MPH
    2.8 Turbo Petrol
    Manual Gearbox
    305 BHP
    389 LB/Ft Torque

    He litereally left me for dead.... and absolutely NO DIESEL SMOKE

    Ah **** !!

    Oh.. and that wasnt his best time either.....

    his best time was 13.3 seconds at 107 MPH !!!

    That even beat Chris's Uprated Supercharger and bigger injected VXR8 with nearly 600 BHP !!!!



    I'm going home.......... (where ever that is..... )

    It was wet, that probably didn't help, and your start didn't look too clever for the first second or so (wheelspin?).

    Even so, that Beemer has some midrange!

    lol... thanks for your support... but no, it wasnt wet... it was completely dry and Santa Pod dragstrip only looks wet.. but it isnt.

    Yeah, I did wheelspin for the first second... but still... it had me beat whichever way I look at it.

    The only other 'standard' road car I've ever seen perform like that was an Audi RS4... that BMW Diesel is awsomely quick...

    That should silence the diesel bashers
    You can see it pulling away constantly, different league of performance

    Nice run Steve, your time is pretty damn good mate!

    We have a standard 335d in our office. It is one of the fastest cars I've ever driven. At any speed you'd dare to do on a motorway, the thing hurls itself forward with a savagery that is normally seen in TVR's etc.

    As day to day transport though it's horrendously thirsty. Most v6 petrols have better economy!!

    God knows what it would be like remapped.

    I drove an old m3 a few years ago, a 52 plate, that was rapid, but I reckon this is quicker.

    Yeah, good point, I did ask him this question and he told me that he gets low 20's MPG, which is lower than mine ! (not on Santa Pod or the Nurburgring though, I get 7 mpg)

    However, he also said that if he drives really carefully, he will get 45 mpg... but he doesn't lol, so its low 20's average

    Oh yeah for sure !!... he told me he regularly beats his mates M3 and his mates Evo's etc.... he reckons its slow off the line !!!... but once on the move... nothing beats it !!!
