I just never get this...if one is gonna spend the time, money effort to SC and tune a car...why in the hell wouldn't you start with a better product?????Anyone see this article? This thing looks like a monster. Gorgeous too. Even has an m5 interior.
This is from performance bmw magazine.
Sorry for the cellphone pic.
Why not just buy a real M5 in the first place, then supercharge that instead of trying to make a look a like?
insurance.... thats most likley why. but no matter what you put in or on it's still not an m5.
I doubt insurance had anything to do with it. Money spent on this car compared to the few hundred bucks a year... If this really is the reason, this person likely failed math.insurance.... thats most likley why. but no matter what you put in or on it's still not an m5.
It isn't. I raced one on a runway (from a dig and from 20mph multiple times) and I inched ahead from a dig until we hit about 90, then the M5 started to walk it.The E60 550 would probably be a pretty close race with an E39 M5. are you going to be sad about that, too?
same reason some people here try to make their M5s race cars - some people just get attached to that particular hunk of metal.
who cares!? it's an 450hp FI BMW that looks damn good.
