In redline magazine this month.

Hi Guys and Porscha,


Remember this thread?

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...agazine+thrash


WELL its in this months mag check it out


Just to remind you, i did

0-60 in 5.4
0-100 in 12.5
1/mile 13.77@104.s0mething, so slower than what ive done before (13.5@105)

Just to put that into perspective.


Code:
Vauxhall VXR8             0-60    5.4                      0-100        13.20
Imprezza RB320            0-60    4.8                      0-100        12.5
Audi S3                   0-60    6.2                      0-100        14.61
DXB335D                   0-60    5.4                      0-100        12.55
Stock 335d                0-60    5.8                      0-100        13.77

So even though a quick car such as the R320 is 0.6 ahead from a standing start a remapped 335d pulls that gap back, then goes on to pull away. Rolling start the 335d would pull away cleanly.

0.7 tenths quicker than a VXR8 (400+bhp) to 100mph. (All times with same equipent and on same runway)

Pics in the mag are nice. Check the mag out if you get a chance

I got ripped compared to some cars there but then again a civic which does 0-100 in 8.9 just beating a modified 911 turbo is one hell of a quick car lol


Carlos
