Where are the Bmw-Fanboys who said Bmw is better on Track then Mercedes? :))) You are just ridicilous and envious!
Bmw sucks. Benz is still King and the Ultimate Driving Machine.

Wait!!
It's as fast to 100 kph as the M5 F10 and has the same top speed???
If it's cheaper than the M5 i'm buying it!

These kind of cars normally run Pilot Sport's semi slicks, and sometimes even specially made for the car. The GTS runs Pirelli
Corsa's you can buy everywhere.
These Pirelli's are street tyres which you can drive in the rain if you want. It just lacks the grip for fast times. Put some PS2's on the son of a mother and it's a whole different ball game.
7:3x is no problem then.

0 - 100 kph -> 3.8 s Is it result obtained by testers on the tarcks or oficial from bmw? Everywere I find 4.4 for 0-100kph. Any explanations?

Tension

thats a matter of the tires, the semi slicks on the old CLS were much more radical towards track perfromance, the modern semi slicks on the M3 GTS are a compromise with some wet track perfromance left for daily driving

Only two secs faster than the old CSL?!

What is wrong with this car?

I have heard rumors that BMW brings a limited edition e90 M3 GTS 4door sedan with 440PS to the IAA ... has anyone more information about that topic?

That explains why the vote I\'d started has vanished! I\'ll start it again.

The hosting company. Doesn\'t matter.

I am continuing work to make it possible to add lots more performance data for carpages.

Who?

FastestLaps  6 years ago  

Yes. Everything added in last two days-or-so is lost.

The frustrating thing is, there was absolutely no need to do this.

In fact they took the whole site down yesterday. Without any warning.

torque is the key here and also those tires and spoiler are more than enough to control the 135i performance option..


User avatar

phavyarden  7 years ago  

It would need be much more lighter than that, and maybe a whole new bodywork, more aerodynamic.


User avatar

gt  7 years ago  

put the 400hp alpina power mods in a 135i ((e82) performance option) add that gts spoiler and tires to it and it would smoke this in every way..

It\'s not a really quick car for the price, i thought that it would be quicker at the Track

The logic of claiming you can spend less and have the M3 perform a lot better vs. the factory set up might be true. However, what happens when your personalized M3 has a problem? Do you think it will hold up? Do you have a warranty? Nope. Re sale value? LOL! That said, if it were my money I\'d buy a Porsche 911 GT3 or spend a little more on an Audi R8 V10.

sounds to me like the second biggest rip off in history

digi  7 years ago  

there's a run of 500 and ppl who can plonk down 100K won't give 2 arses for the price becoz u won't see many of them.

Also, ppl tend to forget that the buyer(s) want exclusivity. Its not a either or event for someone who's earmarked $500K for 4 wheel toys.

Nonetheless, a beautiful car...something for all of us here to dream of...at least BMW made something to compete with the higher-end P cars

To which car do you refer? You mean 997 Turbo? Or 997 GT2? If first, there is almost no difference in performance since 997 Turbo lapped Ring in 7:38 and still, it's hard to say that 997 Turbo could offer place for four adult persons! Actually, 997 Turbo is simply smaller car. If you refer to second, once again we have smaller car, not offering place for four adult persons, which has more power, more torgue, weights 50 kg less. Not mentioning huge price difference.
