IS-F VS M3 Video

Thought this was interesting. Crappy driver perhaps? Need to see the IS-F VS M3 M-DCT.

Its obvious the M3 driver doesn't know how to handle the clutch from a dig. I've seen many videos from professional drivers all having the M3 ahead.

This sort of amateur video is more for fun than anything else in my opinion.

Nice find. I would think they would or should be neck to neck on any straightline race. But from that video, the race from a dig should have been even, the guy in the M3 either missed a gear or don't know how to launch properly.

Looks like a piss poor launch on the part of the driver in the BMW. Only tenths of seconds separate these two cars, making such a blunder nearly impossible to overcome.

Except for the C63 when it comes to straighline race. But i think it's pretty obvious the guy on the M3 is not that good with the 6spd manual. DCT equipped M3 i would suspect would be quicker as well.

Hmm....ISF beating out a M3 is a driver error....!

Anyway, my opinion will always be M3>IS-F

Perfect example of why MDCT is so great and convenient. In a situation like this above, the M3 will always come out on top. Unless its wet outside for that I'm not sure if the M3 will get better traction vs. the ISF.

MDCT FTW

Didn't know the M3 was a drag car.


Hit a road course, the IS-F can't even beat a C63 around a track.

It takes a decent amount of skill and luck to launch a rwd car with over 400hp, this is one of the reasons why M5Board run the drag races from 50km/h, takes this skill/lucky out of the mix.

It's one of the reasons why I will not be tackling any IS-F or RS4 when I get my M3, well off the line that is.

M-DCT will take car of that, bet the M3s with M-DCT will win by at least 1/2 CL or more every time and in every situation.....

I could care less if the IS-F WAS faster...IMHO the exhaust looks like Star Trek gone bad and the handling is nowhere near that of the M. For some people, they would rather roll in a Lexus, and that's fine, my wife has one (GX 470)...great car. But for me, I want the conering ability and balance.

So, even if the IS-F is faster, I could care less! Wait till they match up at a real track (like Infineon) and see who is "better".

From the photos it Looks like the ISF and M3 owners are friends. And i don't see why would the M3 owner/driver would rigged a video with him loosing in his M3. I would think he would have more pride than that. I just think he can't drive or race a 6spd manual that well.

i didn't see this thread earlier. I am the driver of the M3 and the IS-F belongs to my friend. The first video with this link

is the one which actually went well. The other two are the ones which I didn't see the green in time and I launched late. I didn't know he was going to post them. M3 may get an edge when done properly as you can see in the link above. M-DCT would be really good there with the launches and shifts. No matter how fast I shift, it's not going to be as fast as the automatic. The IS-F has a lot of torque compared to the M3 too. I slowed down at the end before the IS-F did as there was something in my way.

In a straight line, I would say these cars are very close. On a track, I am sure you guys know what would happen.
