2007 335i  [0.00]
Buddy just bought a Challenger SRT8

He's dropped in a Predator map, CAI and cat-back. Anybody gone up against one of these? He quoted (before map) 0-60 in 4.99 and a 13.25 1/4 @ 110. What are my chances? Cuz I know he's gonna want to sword fight eventually. I gotta get my damn downpipes soon!!

If its a 6-speed, and he knows how to drive it, youz gonna looze

The auto box in those things is pretty damn good. It's faster than the manual on a drag strip, and easier to launch.

I'm thinking he's going to have at least a car length on a stock 335i in a 1/4 mile run, maybe more depending on how effective that tune is.

Those are sexy cars for sure. What color did your buddy get it in? The orange with black racing stripes makes me want to wet myself.

Lipstick on a pig might make the pig run faster, but it's still a pig.

might beat you in a drag race but never in a million years would it match you on the circuit. the cars were built for different kinds of racing.
