Coincidentally, one turn would change/skew every result here, so again..

Nothing here tests the durablity of these tunes & modifications, less they put all these cars on the track and run them for 1.5 hours. THEN, with real data you can go back and look at "performance gain" between tunes.

But turning it up to 11 and letting her go is about phun. Not about durability and performance.
Well said.

I will add though that there has never been an event of this kind in the US, over 100 cars participated over 2 days, and what's even more relevant to posting all the results here on Bimmerpost is that BMW's represented 50% or more of the cars that were there. So while your post is well written, it's not just for entertainment purpose only, it was actually historic, epic and flat out "phun" for everyone who was there.
