Ditto...

Looks like from your 60 foot launch control had some issue or spin. That trap speed is almost 10 mph off as well.

That is a piss poor time. An Audi S5 can almost do better than that.

BMW M3 M-DCT
60ft - 2.023s
330ft - 5.628s
1/8mile - 8.590s @ 80.85mph
1000ft - 11.113s
1/4mile - 13.245s @ 105.62mph

http://www.rs6.com/forum/showpost.ph...09&postcount=4

Audi S5
60ft - 2.65s @ 27.5mph
330ft - 6.63s @ 60.9mph
1/8mile - 9.56s @ 86.6mph
1000ft - 12.00s @ 100.9mph
1/4mile - 14.06s @ 109.9mph

And according to the guy who posted these results he missed second gear which cost him an estimated 0.7s.

Didn't I make the right decision in selling the S5 and getting an M3?

The S5 can't keep up with an E46 M3 let alone the E92, it is on a whole different planet of fast.

Don't put so much into one persons times.

I don't agree that the S5 wouldn't be quicker than the older E46 M3, at least in stock form. I never did test my own S5 when I had it but I do know it was quicker than most people think.

This guy's times in the early accelerate speeds was awful, I'm guessing he could poor traction. Here are the figures from that complete post. I have written in red what I think was going on.

0-10mph - 1.00s
0-20mph - 1.73s
0-30mph - 2.76s
First gear change and the easiest of all, but here the guy loses a shit lot of time, I can only assume he missed a gear as he said himself.
0-40mph - 4.29s
0-50mph - 5.22s
0-60mph - 6.22s
Second gear change, definitely more difficult than the first but the 10mph + shift was completed in 1.16s instead of 2.53s
0-70mph - 7.38s
0-80mph - 8.65s
0-90mph - 10.03s
Third gear change, the 10mph + shift was completed in 1.76s
0-100mph - 11.79s

There is no doubt I have timed my S5 and it always completed the 60mph run in less than 6 seconds, once dipping to just below 5 seconds. But it would comfortable average a mid 5 seconds if enough were tested and averaged out.

The thing is I remember what Bruce said, that the time is the important thing and not the speed, if true then the M3 is comfortably ahead of the S5, after all it posted the 1/4mile run in 13.245s @ 105.62mph, instead of the S5's 14.06s @ 109.9mph.

But you can clearly see that if these two cars were to be racing side by side and the distance had of been great (say 1/2mile) then the S5 would have pulled ahead and then away.

One time from one car doesn't mean anything. We don't know temperature and altitude (which make HUGE differences) nor how much wheelspin.

The time is probably .5 to .75 seconds off the best magazine times (which have lots of runs and are corrected). The trap speed is slow indicating there was probably a temp/altitude issue, or maybe this particular car is just a little down on power or loaded with extra options?
