E92 M3 vs. E63

What do you guys think? I hate the 0-60 thing but my friend that just got word that I have the new E92 M3 challenged me to a race. He has the E63 SMG. Thinking in the next few weeks we will take our cars out to sears point for the 1/4 mile run. I will make sure to take video's

Yeah it's gonna be an ugly beating. The only bright spot is that it's not an E55. If it was it would be even uglier beatdown.

Not really a fair race, especially in a 1/4 mile. 420hp vs 507hp, not to mention the gargantuan torque advantage the E63 has. Regardless, it should be fun, so go for it. Let us know how it goes, see if you can video the run. Good luck and be safe, but most of all, have fun.

Why don't you do something interesting and race around corners?

Well yes, but the engine is in my opinion also an integral part of a car. Not just the suspension setup...

E63 is likely to blow you away!!! Torque is crazy, I have an E55 AMG and its faster than my E92 M3. Not too much faster though, so good luck!!! Now, if your talking a few chicans, you will blow him away then!!!! Let us know how it goes!!!

yep Wednesday nights. Still have about 700 miles before break in is done. Now it costs $20 for 4-7 depending on how many people show. More people less runs. But usally you get 2 free runs then you start the clocking.

Yep, I love Bimmer's as well, but AMG have some great qualities!! A bit different than the great feel of the Bimmer's though.
