I am by no means an engineer, but what about lowering tire air pressure for more contact?

Some people may be able to get the car to go quicker with full dsc off
Power: Sport Plus - *420HP
Power: Sport - *400HP

*98 octane fuel (reccomended in M3 E9X manual).

Even if 100% of the floor it is on the sport you will have a maximum engine power. At Sports Plus a little more throttle opens and you will have a richer fuel mixture, which increases the performance of the car.

Once again...I hope this is a joke. Please stop posting because you're doing nothing but confusing people.

The only 1 time I was wrong and wrote a thesis that you were right

This time I checked the car on the dyno ... the 100 octane fuel was measured under 456 power and 434 torque...

Here's a picture that describes the power and torque on 93 octane fuel, while the 98 has 420HP and 400Nm (torque).

The difference between Power settings Sport and Sport Plus also checked.

Eddie, the Power button, whether it be sport or Sport Plus add nothing to the horsepower. All it does it change the throttle mapping to make it seem like you're getting a better throttle response. Think of it like this: Full throttle is 100% of your foot down in normal setting, 75% of your foot down in sport, and 60% in sport plus. (Those are hypothetical statistics)

So what do you think, what changes this button? According to what you wrote it doesn't change anything ... On the Dyno showed that Sport Plus adds 20HP to the maximum power (I don't remember how the torque).

Dinan helps

Found Dinan flash, which makes the throttle response linear from tip in and on is essential for launch.

Then the dyno is faulty. Read the manual man.

They called the dealer ... said that the Sport Plus increases the power, the throttle opens faster .. called the second ... said that only opens the throttle and the power is the same ... The dyno was f ** ed ... I have it next to the dyno test. So now I am not giving up on similar topics, unless the car will be properly checked.

Btw. w00tw00t
