  1. General: That's funny if it's true - I still remember a...

    That's funny if it's true - I still remember a couple months back the boss of M GmbH saying that the M and i brands are "two book-ends" and "there are no plans for combining them", thus justifying...
  2. F32,F33,F36,F82,F83: It will most likely be on par with the GT3 in the...

    It will most likely be on par with the GT3 in the pricing segment. As it will be a limited edition model, it's likely there are enough people with too much money on their hand who will buy it,...

    A German car magazine has stated that the price will be between 140.000 EUR and 150.000 EUR (VAT included). That puts it in direct competition to a Porsche GT3, for example.

    Personally I find...

    So it's 3770 lbs without driver and luggage but with a 90% full tank.

    More photos can be found on http://www.mercedes-amg.com. From these it would seem that the coupé has the pano roof as a...

    Press release:

    Mercedes-AMG is setting a further landmark in the brand history: the new C 63 Coupé is the next step on the way to yet more technical and visual distinctiveness. The far-reaching...

    You can sometimes find newer TCUs on ebay. That's what a friend of mine did. After replacing it he was then able to use the Alpina TCU flash.

    Here's a bit more info from a German newspaper article that was published on the 26th of July. Currently Porsche is performing the last test cycle on the 991.2 facelift. The journalist accompanied...

    A bit surprising the 335i does not have the Alpina TCU flash. That accelerates the shifts quite a bit and is rather easy to program (unless you've got a really old 335i where the TCU may need to be...
  9. That's hilarious. Well done.

    That's hilarious. Well done.

    W205: I don't quite see a major weight change as the...

    I don't quite see a major weight change as the coupé is based on the same platform. It can still be faster than the sedan due to the wider tyres, lower center of gravity and a potentially differently...

    Well I still got quite a few friends with a 335i so I won't totally lose the connection...but personally yeah, it's a quantum leap in terms of driving experience.

    They don't know $#@! about the E9x platform.

    I had my personal experience with them back in 2009 when I wanted to have my 335i N54 tuned by them. A few weeks of downtime of my car and a $#@!load...

    I just wonder whether these rather extreme torque gains are not a problem for the double clutch transmission, at least for longer than just a few thousand miles.
  14. IMO a supercharger is the perfect fit for this...

    IMO a supercharger is the perfect fit for this engine. There are lots of turbo charged high-powered cars out there, and the R8 is one of the last with a natural aspirated engine. If you go down the...

    The MP4-12C are getting fairly "cheap", at least compared to the original list price these days. You can get a very low-mileage with ceramic-carbon brakes for 140K EUR these days.

    That's an even...
  16. The Dunlop Sport Maxx Race are also cup tires and...

    The Dunlop Sport Maxx Race are also cup tires and as such comparable to the Michelins. The Michelins are the newer model though, so that might be a slight advantage. The Dunlop however were also...

    That was the most recent AutoBild Sportscar. I will try to scan the relevant article.
  18. Pursuant to the information I read in German car...

    Pursuant to the information I read in German car magazines, it is certain that the V6 biturbo engine will be chosen and not the 5 cylinder from the TTRS. It's the more modern engine with bigger...

    This is great power - amazing to see how easy it is to extract more hp from that V10 engine.

    I do have serious doubts though that at this level of power the engine and transmission will last very...
  20. I can't quite believe that the stock transmission...

    I can't quite believe that the stock transmission can handle over 1100 Nm. I know of a few RS6 that have had transmission problems at far, far lower power levels.
  21. B9: I wonder if that's also going to be the engine...

    I wonder if that's also going to be the engine that we will see in an entry-level Audi R8. Seems likely as the V8 biturbo models would cannibalise on the V10 variants with a tune.

    Sure, I'm subscribed to that magazine. I can scan it and send it to you. Just give me an e-mail address where I can send it. Beware, it's in German though :)

    Interesting article.

    You could do something similar for the sportscars segment where the V8 biturbo becomes more common too. McLaren use it in every car of theirs, now Ferrari too in the...
  24. It seems to become more and more common to send...

    It seems to become more and more common to send manipulated press cars to magazines. It's seductive as it is so easy to change a map in the turbo era.

    Just remember the M5 Competition that was...

    I'd still take the F12 any day. That V12 howl! Just amazing.
