    As soon as you start tracking the car with R-compound tyres, higher g-forces in corners may cause oil lubrication issues.

    It's worrying to see these issues on stock M3s...
    The S85 is dry sumped...

    But isn't this thread about the S65? Click here to enlarge

    IMO BMW didn't implement a dry sump system due to costs, sadly. Just like they put crappy brakes on the M3 (the new M5 at least has fixed-piston brakes). But this goes OT...

    Yes but people are pointing out there are many dry sumped street cars.

    No doubt, cheap asses just do not care any longer.

    I think Mike @ VAC meant that aftermarket dry sump setups are not really ideal for street cars. Obviously, we all know some cars come with DS stock from the factory.

    Ya - buying a Z06 with dry sump system, is a lot different than fitting an aftermarket dry sump system to an M3 in full street trim. Anything is possible, and everything has been done by someone on earth, but its not likely or even smart.
