4.289 0-60 with no rollout. Should be at 4 flat with the standard 1' rollout allowance. Ran a 12.7 at the 1/4 mile track before meth and on OEM tires, rims and stock exhaust. Hoping to be close to 12.1 or 12 flat when I go back in March.
Man, how are you even hooking up from a dig with that power and an open diff? That's pretty impressive!

Your car is well put together and classy. I was wondering about your VMR wheels. I had Avant Garde M310's and they are junk. I sold them to a guy with an e39 and it rides so much better because he didnt need the hub centric rings as I did. Do your VMR's need them? I only want that style of wheel (the AG's and yours are pretty much the identical style) and want them in black. And what are the offsets?

BTW... I am quite surprised that you can beat an M5 from a dig as they have launch control and our cars don't. You kinda have to feel your way off the line more so than an M you know?

Tires I'm sure have a lot to do with it as well.

What's the advantage of doing a ww method kit vs a trunk mount kit ? And if you mix the meth into where the washer fluid goes what happens when you need to use your washer fluid ? Sorry if these questions sound stupid but I gotta know as meth is my next step

The WW meth kit uses the existing WW bottle which holds a gallon. The Trunk mounted tank is usually 2.2 gallon, so doesn't need to be refilled as often.
You can still use the windshield washer since meth is the same fluid, just higher alcohol content. So it's dual purpose.
I mix M1 meth with windshield washer fluid 50/50. Works pretty good.
The downside to a tank is that it takes up space in the trunk and has to be strapped securely somehow. Not particularly stealth looking.
Howerton is working on a tank that fits in the space where the spare tire is stored. This would have my interest. Totally hidden and tons of capacity.

Insanely well done mods; the exterior is beautiful, not to mention the sport front end. I just got an 08 550i - Space Grey. I like the overlays. Where do you purchase those? (We bought my wife's 535 from an individual. It came with pink overlays :0)
Love the look of your car - would like to try overlays on mine.

You REALLY need to get that car dynoed properly. You basically gave it all you can so sheet numbers would complete all your work. BTW, that exhaust has got to be loud as hell????
