Wow...what a bunch of clowns.

"Um, sir, 07 M5s are rated at 507 bhp from the factory, so what makes this one 900hp?"

"I'm not really sure, let me ask my partner who knows more about this stuff...Hey Neal, what's this M5 got done to it to make 900hp?"

"It's got turbos and exhaust"

"Um, no, sorry but it doesn't have turbos, you're falsely advertising the HP"

"Some guy from Kansas called earlier asking about the same thing, I know there's a dyno sheet around here somewhere, I'll figure it out and let you know"

Keep calling folks, or ask for pictures of the turbos :biggrinbounce:

Oh...someone PLEASE go test drive that thing (and flog it like you're in a rental car and trying to make it on COPS during "sweeps week")! And if you can manage to GoPro the experience......OMG, that would just be too damn good! Who's close to where the poor car is being sold??

Just for ****s and giggles, I called them and spoke to a "Tony".

Me: I'm calling about the 2007 M5 you have listed on Craigslist
Tony: Yeah, how can I help you?
Me: It says on the ad that it has 900hp...
Tony: Well, the original owner spent about $7000 on an exhaust system...
We've been getting a lot of calls about it... He had it chipped, but took the chip out, so it's back down to 500hp...It actually has, uhhh, 500hp...
Me: *CLICK*


So apparently there's a "chip" out there that adds about 400hp! LMAO :grinyes:

They want nearly 50k for an 07 with 71000 miles?! If anything, what's been done to it should only make it cheaper.

I think what this Chinese chip does, is it hacks the dyno machine and tells it that the car has 900whp. When it's really only pushing around 430ish...

Wait what? So he is charging his potential customer for something the car had in the past, but is not longer on the car?

Wow that sounds like Porsche marketing to me. Charge more for less.

LMAO!

My immediate thought was "wow this must be another one of those Russian M5's making more power than anyone else in the world".. Then I realize the "thing" is in Addison lol

As for the tune.. It must have had a Benvo reworked Evolve tune to make 400 extra ponys! :eek:oohhh:

I know, I know cheap shot but I just couldn't resist :blink:
