2008 335xi e92 JB4 vs 2007 Merc CLS550

CLOSED CIRCUIT. I ran with this Mercedes from about 40 to 120. I have an AFE intake and a JB4 map 1 tune and I still couldn't catch up. What in the world??

I would do a log and see of everything is running smoothly. It could be that your so heavy (4 wheel drive) that it's slowing you down. Are you sure it wasn't a CLS55 AMG? Those things are quick!

I'm thinking about going to the dyno and doing a few runs this week. I have a small leak in my front differential, but I don't think that it would make that big of a difference. No it wasn't a CLS55 AMG, but it was a CLS550 AMG which only comes with an exterior AMG package and no engine tweaks.

That's really odd, I've driven an 11 e550 and have an 11 E AMG and the 550 isn't that quick and handles like a boat. The CLS from what I understand is a heavier e-class. I know you said it was 2007, but are you sure its not a 12/13 with the new turbo motors, they are almost if not quicker than the 6.2 amg engine...
