Awesome numbers, love the color but talk about a lack of taste on everything else.

I've driven a X5M and disliked the transmission and not a fan of the s63 vs the s65

but this thing just seems too mean to not like

Reminds me of the Alpina air vent display for the E30 that I'm still kicking myself for passing up:

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.
On the aluminum block S65? Show me

With the increased weight of the S63 and increased tire stagger, the balance is probably ruined.

The gratuitousness is certainly cool, but the fender flares look like they came off a riced out 90's civic.

Are you saying that you think the S63 does not have an Aluminum block?

FI S65 strokers exist.

The S63 does have an aluminum block but also has cast iron sleeves to help the motor handle high boost, unlike the S65 (aluminum sleeves).

And yes, I do know FI strokers (pencilgeek, for example) exist - supercharger strokers.

Who said S65 is sleeved? i don't know about S63 but S65 isn't sleeved. The only sleeved running S65's are stage 3 Gintanis.

You are correct, I was running on fumes after the midnight mass and must've switched things up
