That M3 IS fast... :yikes: Honestly, judging by the gap between the two at the end, I think the M3 would've won no matter what... Driver skills? :dunno:

The M5 is a bit slower coming off the line, but once moving, it gets ahead. This is what I was told from BMW Performance Center instructors :)

Considering that both are limited @ 155Mph, how's that possible? I mean, is the M5 quicker in the 1/4-mile/0-100Mph/0-120Mph? :dunno:

That is what he said :dunno:

"The smaller cars get the jump off the line, but the M5 quickly catches up and passes them" :dunno:

There aren't many cars as fast past 120mph either :p It keeps accelerating hard until about 170, then drag comes in a bit harder until 190 :lmao:

So is your dad's M5 back up to par? I remember something broke at the track a few months ago...Have you really gone that fast in an M5..?! :yikes:

Just the clutch, pretty standard for M5s. And yes, it shows 187 at 6500 in 6th :)

I know where this is!

Whoa! I know where these drag races where!
That is close to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

That's where I'm from... Amazing the amount of luxury, exotic cars you see down there... You can see a brand new Ferrari 360, Masserati or the likes like that on any given intersection right next to a beat up, smoky 1985 Buick Skyhawk barely able to stand on the road.

Last year, before anybody on this board had seen any new E46 M3's, I went there to visit family in February and saw 3 of them on the streets... it's sad for a country that is more poor than rich.
The rich get richer and... well, you know...
