"Modern and light sports seat reduces weight compared to the standard seat (3kg per seat)." Anyway this description is not M specific. So it would be good to know which 'standard seat' was considered for this comparison. Anything tells me a standard seat weighs less than the M3 seat (i.e. power seats not being standard in all models). Best regards, south

Absolutely amazing what you have done with the car. Best combo for looks and performance. But can only imagine how much $$$$$$$$ spent. Because I know how much I've spent WOW.

At 14% loss, that would indicate the following: 361 whp Stock 401 whp Modded Since you said they are already corrected for the conditions below, the weather info is irrelevant. You're seeing about 10% gain at the wheels, and you'll feel that. Nice! Finally, do you know what kind of dyno was used? Dynojet?

Probably it is only a stupid idea....but why not to post a video showing the
tachometer and the acceleration between 50/60130 mph or more and let us see how many seconds it takes? we can speak all the time about your results but since you feel a big change and the power is sure present into your car, it would be very simple to show the differences and convince everyone.I personally beleive in your report. This report is now discussed also in Italy in a similar Forum. And in many different Forums, there are some skepticals (it is absolutely normal)..so why not to show the results in a way that could convince many of them? This is not a disrespect against you, simply it is an idea. I have seen on youtube many videos, similar to this idea.. and it is very simple with a clock, to see how many seconds it takes from a speed to another. Sure someone more expert than me could suggest from which speed to another to make this test. Probably not starting from zero, since more difficult. This is only an idea. I am sure that 46 hp would have a releavant increase in performance... Just an example of the idea:

This is the calculator I am using: http://www.csgnetwork.com/relhumhpcalc.html Another explanation is that the reported numbers are already corrected for the test conditions. If that's the case, just ignore the corrected numbers I posted.

That makes sense then. I'll delete the part of the post on corrected values so it doesn't confuse people.

They are $31,250 pesos each with taxes and everything. A tad over $3 thousand each. Be happy to help you out, but maybe you can get them for less directly in Europe. I think its well worth it since they do have the side impact air bag and are made to fit etc..., etc... Let me know!!
