    Acura TL 6mt vs. E46 M3

    The TL had about 140lbs worth of extra body weight (235lb driver and 220lb passenger). There will be a rematch.

    Are those TL's really that fast? I beat a 3rd gen TL Type S on the highway before.

    Not putting miles on your Ferrari is like not f*cking your girlfriend so she'll be more desirable to her next boyfriend.

    Yes, and it is going to be faster soon. It should have been a closer race, the passenger slowed the TL down a little. You may have raced a automatic TL which is a 5 speed POS. The 6mt is a huge step up.

    Could have been, but I'm not sure.

    But a 545i weights in at about 3900 lbs, has 325 hp and 330 lb-ft. A TL Type S is about 3500 lbs, 286 hp and 256 lb-ft. That could make a pretty interesting race if both cars are 6MT.

    Yes, you should try to run one. 6mt TL's are pretty rare though.

    The TL beat me to 105mph on map 0, respectively. I am probably making about 295whp on map 0, so that is a pretty good run for the TL. I am pretty sure it would beat a stock 335i by a car or two to 130.

    Yeah, we want to run a completely stock one with no passengers. I think it would be very very close. Whoever won would win by no more than half a car.

    um.... are you and i watching the same video? or do you only count bus lengths as a victory?
    about what id expect from an m3 using 4:10 gears. as if its not short enough already.
    edit: what about short buses? lol

    TL had more weight take that out and race would be a lot closer.

    I'd qualify that TL as a sleeper. The auto ones are complete dogs and even my cousins 2nd Gen TL-S was pretty slow and consumed a few transmissions
    I'd like to see it with more mods, it's just to bad it isn't a TL-S. I love that car.

    I ran a stock 550 not too long ago. It was a 3 way pull between myself, a 6.0 gto and a clk 550. And the clk didnt seem that fast. We ran from about 50 to 130 and I was in front of the clk by a fender.

    The AT TL's are absolutely terrible. A FBO + tune 5-AT TL-S could not even keep up with the TL in the video, solely due to the 6mt. The M3 was definitely faster, but its also modded and we had a little more weight in the car. I know the M3 would have won regardless, but it should only be about 2 cars by 120mph, respectively. I cant wait to see how the TL fairs with the next modifications that will be added. I am certain sure that they will ensure victory. Although, the M3 only has to add a few mods, i.e headers, and it would murder the TL. I think both of the cars performed well for what is done to them. I hope we can get passenger-less runs in next time we meet.

    P.S: The M3 sounded amazing. The eisenmann exhaust is worth the money.

    Thanks! It was a lot of fun to see where both cars stand. I think it would be pretty close versus a stock E46 M3, especially if the TL was low of fuel. The TL actually walked my FBO + meth 335i (on map 0) from 40-105mph.

    I'd have to see it to believe it.... So how does a 550 compare to a 6.0 gto from a roll?
