Video: Chipped DCT M3 vs. Chipped 335

A 335 owner and his friend came on M3post and called out M3's to race. That thread was here: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...hlight=freeway

I said I was game and met up with the guy and his friend in my DCT M3. My friend taped the runs, 1 passenger each.

We constantly hear about how a chipped 335 is equal to the M3 in a straight line, nonsense. No one ever talks about what happens when you start modding the M3. The gain for the M3 with a chip is far less than the 335 gets, but it is enough for the M3 to destroy it.

See for yourself:

lol. M3 has a 24% shorter final drive and a redline 1400 rpm higher, which means more torque at wheels at almost all speeds.

And this takes a lot of extra torque on the 335 to beat, let alone a chipped M3.

Alright.

So your ECU chipped M3 now has how many HP exactly? Stock EU is 420.
With a EU chip 447BHP should be possible....

Every run was from a roll, one was just a very low speed roll.

Nice race, I thought it would have been a little closer but you clearly thumped the 335.
