    I'm not skeptical of the power figures at all, I saw the dyno. I want to see 1/4 mile times and 60-130 vbox times....I want to see how it performs in the real world. Driving impressions are opinions, while they are valuable, I would like some better data, that would be a complete review in my book. I think the fact that not one person has posted any of this data, besides shiv, is why everyone is anxious and skeptical of the real world performance.

    Yes, I thought the review was good. I'm starting to think you skipped parts of the review?? Did you miss the entire section labeled "My Impressions Driving The Car"??? Click here to enlarge I don't see why you are being so skeptical over the power figures. The guy did an independent dyno run which shows the power the car is making, the actual powerband, etc. I will let you know right now (since it's apparent the majority on this forum have not driven a larger single turbo car) it's not going to be an easy car to launch. Anytime you shift the powerband further right it will be harder to get off the line unless launched just right. I would imagine those looking at this upgrade are driving their cars like 99% of the other 335i owners.. around town and on the freeway. They want the increased power on the top end and it's easily on tap once moving as you are keeping the rpm up or can easily downshift a gear.

    and if you watch this video, you will see the 458 is ahead the entire race and lets off at exactly 6:17 for the cones.. Love how you exlude the facts

Make up your mind because all you're doing is adding fuel to the fire to stir $#@! up.
    I don't know what you find confusing here.

    Let's see what a car other than Shiv's own does on the strip. Let's see what guys with the kits hit on their own. What is so complicated? If it matches or doesn't match who cares but some more slips out of these would be great to see.

    Ok and?

You have to remember, there aren't many kits out there.. and while it would be nice to have more of their customers going to the drag strip to post times, do some illegal roll races with buggati veyrons/pagani zondas/a unicorn/etc.., not every customer of theirs will be interested in doing that.
    It isn't nitpicking to mention a timeslip was not posted and we don't have a single slip from owners. It's a big glaring hole and it is valid to mention it.

    It was a close race, but the video you just posted shows proof. Shiv passed him 2 seconds before the cones. Take a look at 6:15.

    yup, a magic 100 hp was gained right there... or a more likely scenario, as the 458 let off the throttle.. the world IS round..

    It did though hang with the 458 which is impressive in my book, but as mentioned not enough to justify the price tag for the single or the trouble to get one, for 10K + money on Bolt ons, i would want my car to run mid 10s all day long and this is currently not happening.
