Bimmer 1/4 TIMES?
 
Hello ha!

I find that BMW either has really good gearing, or the power specs are underrated?

Friend has a 323 manual, Ive seen them rated as low as 15flat, with only 170hp?
Anyone break high 14s stock?

How about 330 autos and manual? 1/4?

Also the 540 autos & those X5 4.4/4.6's in the 1/4...?

I have an ALTIMA 3.5 v6 5spd auto, so I would like to know if I would get sliced.... Nissan seems to overrate their HP BTW : /

I guess Im good for 14.6-14.9...
Many have gotten that in the OLDER 10less hp, FOUR speed auto...

cheers!!!

They´re geared pretty well, and the motors and drivetrain are pretty efficient.

My best so far is 14.7 with my slightly modded at the time 328is (with lots of wheelspin). I´ll be going back soon to try it out again.

i was just wondering what people consider lots of wheel spin?

like cant hook off the line until you let go of the gas or like cant hook second or perhaps 3rd?

IMHO, having to let go of the gas in 2nd cause you cant hook at 90kph is trouble hooking. Anything before that is gravy lmao

wheelspin on fwd car is pretty much gravy no matter how fast you are going

Saw a 328iS at Cayuga last wed... he ran a 14.44@97... I think that was his best.

I mean that I don't practice my launches, so all of first and second gear is wheelspin
