How much power are you putting down to the wheels?
400whp...i am DCT....i didnt walk them but I got them by 1-2 cars depending on the starting speed and who got the jump.

For example, heres Drew running a tuned C63:



His best 60-130 was 10.71 and he is dead even with a tuned C63 (and even pulls in some runs depending on the speed).......I hit 9.8 on my last time out. Modded DCTs are good competition for a tuned C63. Anything more on the C63 the M3 needs a blower.

Wow how funny, i've seen that vid already.. lol
That last run was pretty accurate, I feel. both jumped at the same time.

Anyway, so your putting down 400WHP in that video, and he had what?

OP, sorry for threadjack.

Thats not me in the video, that is Drew's M3 back when he was N/A.
My VBOX runs have hit roughly 1 second faster (maybe a little less than) than him from 60-130....theres another member on this board MAXSEX i think who recently hit 9.7s

Why didn't you bid on that vt1 that was for sale recently? It is a drastic difference. Went from 114-117 mph trap to 122-125. Already finalized upgrade to 625 with ESS after Santa comes. I asked my wife for the vt2 as a gift idea and she practically through a pot at me

add 60whp to whatever c63s typically dyno stock....it was probably well north of 400whp....maybe 430? idk

the C is always going to need more hp to hang with the lighter, better geared, quicker shifting m3 dct

i get the whole enthusiasts thing about getting an M3 in manual, " full control of the car " and all that mumbo jumbo. Heck my current 335i is manual.


But i dont think i would ever get a manual M3. The DCT is the best of both worlds and then some. You will be left behind in your $70,000 manual M3 every single time.

DCT just makes the car, come alive.
