He He, you got the other way around. Use M3 w/ friends and 550 for GF. Unless you bought the car for wrong reasons.

Video doesn't prove anything.

They didn't even race to the 1/4 mile. If the M3 was also a 6MT, that difference came down to reaction time. Also, it was a street race, anyone could let up for any reason.

Agreed - stock E93 M3 is faster than stock F10 550i in 0-60 (4.6 v 4.8) quarter mile (13.1 @ 109mph v 13.4 @ 106) and skidpad (E93 at 0.92g on 300-ft diameter skidpad per car and driver). Therefore no way competitive with e90/92 stock v stock...

Hate to bump this thread, but a couple of days ago I had the 550i (xdrive) and I was able to beat an e90 m3 from a roll.
I know I have a lot more torque so at the begining I would pull away but as we kept going he wasnt gaining on me at all if anything I was pulling away.
I highly respect the m3, but unless its from a dig and the m3 gets a super good launch I doubt it could beat the 550i
By the way I own a tuned 335i and my best friwnd has an m3 and I know the speed of the m3 and whenever I drive the 550i you can tell its faster in a straight line.
The 335 will pull on the m3 but at high speed the m3 beats it, however the 550 doeant have a small engine with small turbos that run out of breagh, the 550 keeps pulling.

Once again this is in no way to bash the m3, I love it and I mean cmon at the end of the day theyre both bmws so we gotta love em.

Edit: also want to add in, car amd driver tested the 550i doing 0-60 in 4.5 and 1/4 in 12.8
For a big heavy car it moves!
