Just got beat by a c55!!

ok, so me and my friend planned a race on a private road to his driveway. So we lined up and did a 10 mph roll. I honked 3 and we went. I pulled on him for a little bit and he kept catching up really fast. by 90 mph he was already 1/2 to 1 car length and thats about it. We just shut off after that. I didn't want to do from 0 because I really don't wanna launch my car. Its so bad to brake launch but it seems like I am going to next time. c55 and 335 are head to head 1/4 mile 13.3. But the c55 trap @ 108 and 335 trap at 106. So I guess retry

wow, sedan vs sedan or do you have a coupe? what's the weight difference if you know?

Also, I think the AMGs really pull hard top end

That sounds about right. Stock for stock the AMG should be a little faster.

Will a chip 335i beat a c55? I might just get JB2 or JB2. So I can beat my friend.

Wait a minute. A 335i lost a race.

You would have thought the 335i is fastest car on the planet, from reading some of the ridiculous kill stories.

It does it when you use it on EVERYTHING in the car. Such as body panels

I said "almost"... CF can lighten a car which makes it quicker.... but the money is better spent on a piggy back if he wants to run with a C55, not on CF. How much can you spend on CF for the OP's car to be as fast as his friends C55? Surely changing the trunk to all CF one won't get him there.

True.

I was thinking more in lines of Mclaren SLRS and Ferraris

With pretty much any "chip" you should pull him.

I beat one from a stop with only catless downpipes.

I might consider getting a JB1 or JB2. I just want something that will give me the extra boost and better gas mileage. ON average how much better gas mileage do you get with a chip?

Before i got my 335xi coupe i owned a c55. It was an awesome car. 367 hp 376 tq. I always strugled to get a good launch without spinning. When i had it i raced a few 335's and took them by 1-3 lengths. I would think with just about any piggy back the c55 would be walked by 1-3 cars. At times i miss that car but the 335 is so perfect

heres a pic of what she looked like when i sold her.

Didn't you get the memo? 335i can beat vettes*, porsches*, ferraris*, M3s*, and I might be wrong but someone might have mentioned a Veyron.










*really old ones

I had your car's big brother before jumping ship to the dark side

I killed a couple E46 M3s and a couple E92 335i's before ditching it

I really liked the older styling of the MBs.. now they try to squeeze in the look of the S class into all their vehicles and it's just blah now.
