Hello fellow Modded E93'ers DC/VA/MD

Where are the DC Metro area E93's? I mostly see sedans and coupes around this area.. who's got a modded vert nearby?

I know the verts aren't gonna go for performance typically, but curious to see if there are some that bother doing some dragging around here. I'll be perfectly happy to crack into high 12's on street rubber, hopefully not too difficult even with the weight.

howdy! I love an e93 properly modded. Maybe you should be the first in the area.

My friend has a bolted e93, but he doesn't fancy the forms nor the meets... If I didn't tell him what the potential of the n54 was he still would of been stock.

I'm here to represent! I've got a semi modded e93 in the Fairfax area. I took the car to the strip when I was completely stock and ran a 14.1 @ 96 I think it was on a hot 90+ degree humid day down in Florida. I haven't had the chance to run it since I've gotten the JB4 and DCIs.

Nice! Only performance I have at the moment is a Cobb AP. Probably won't do much to it under the hood, but the tune alone sure makes this piggy scoot!

+1 for cobb. If you had a front mount and dps that will really help make a huge difference!

It would be close. I know the E90/92 Ran like 13.2 in the qtr stock. I know the E93 is heavier with the hardtop. Also depends on the driver as well. I have friends that are FBO and running in the low to mid 12s.

I can't lie that seems abit slow for a 50/50 mix of E85... The weather killed it for you

How much worse is drivetrain loss on the AWD?

Traction should have been great, and it's not the heavier vert, so yeah I would think mid 12's are more likely. Guess the heat was harsh.

They say 20% drivetrain loss.... Heat kills turbo cars

Won't be long now and you will be blasting that heat so you can still drive around with the top down.
