I'll challenge anyone with a US manual 330i to try get a time under 6.

ward, what is the point of double clutching? Isn't that why we have syncros? Couldn't it just be easier using the heel and toe downshift where you rev match, but by not double clutching? I don't know if there is any advantage, so if you can tell me, I'd love to know the difference. thanks.

I was calm??? I was actually laughing. The relivance is, you posted 330i numbers from a magazine. And some people on here (in the thread that was closed) think that an R32 beats a 330i. Well yea compairing drivers, conditions Ect. R32 will give you a run for your money. But I think 99 to 1 the 330i in stick should take it. Im just posting to show how in accurate magazine racing it. Like I have alwayz said. 2 different cars, same conditions same place same time. Those are real results.

Ohh and sorry but no one ever mentioned that. I just really know my shit, thats all.

So I was just posting an Example.
