One never knows what the other driver is exactly doing in particular instance...the ISF in that situation was a tad faster than the E60 was (both a little slower than me) that's entirely possible he wasn't trying as hard, didn't hit the right shift points in the SMG if was manual shifting (having driven E60 M5s on a track, there is some initial hesitation when trying to engage the right gear), or maybe car wasn't optimally performing, or was a 5 yr old car vs my 1 yr old car (mileage, plugs, filter, etc etc). Also, I am tuned w/ bolt ons, so maybe that made a difference, maybe not. None of these war stories are truly controlled/scientific..the only thing you see is the result without fully knowing the inputs/variables.

The v10 m5/6 is an animal over 60mph and would absolutely destroy a non sc m3. Tons of vids on YouTube demonstrate the result...

I hear ya, I like to give the other party a reason to throw it back if they can. Sometimes they can and sometimes not, but that's the fun of it I guess But then some people get so serious about it, it cracks me up, and then the real fun bantering begins.

Bumping this. .. same results with me and I'm stock... ran the latest model s6 from a 20mph roll to 110 mph. Pretty even in first n second, by the time my windows all rolled up (had all for down) , I walked it in 3rd gear by 2-3 lengths. I didn't think that was possible considering the 1/4 mile traps they can put down.
