Ripped the soul right out of the car.......what is the point to that. All this horsepower people want makes no sense to me, because you could barely use all 414 that is in a stock ///M3.

If you can't match the rings times recorded by the stock version, why not spend money on your driving skills rather than stupid amounts of power.

Just one man's opinion....


Cheers,

Because it is a lot more work to make a Frankenstein engine/trans combo work together than it is to just use the two together in OEM combination.

It would probably be easier at that point to stroke the S65 and turbo it (which has also been done). Or, wait and use an S63tu/DCT combo from an F10 M5.

It would have been nice to see 19 inch wheels... the 20s look a little big for my taste.

crazy power though!

Fugly. The fender flares are terrible. Hood fitment is awful. I don't care how fast it is.

That thing kind looks like an X6M, with those giant back wheels and stance.

This thing looks hideous. That whole body kit and color scheme has to go. But at least it is fast as hell. Big ass brakes too. So this thing is AWD then since it has the X5M/X6M tranny?

I think that black one for £41k is a good price for the spec and young age of it

Could be a while before you find another

Manhart is in Niederheid? I lived in Waldfeucht BTW...
