just had a race with an new bmw m5 (obviously on a private race track)
went up behind in 5th and he dropped two cogs (u could see everytime he changed, exhaust dust)
and i was all over him even had to back then he moved over and i flew past!
deeeeccceeent!!!

BUT THEN........................

a few mins later he pulled aside of me i dropped to 4th (thought i wud really embarrass him) and he smoked me!!!!!!!!!???????????????

he obviously pressed his ''M'' button!!
respect to the new m5 there are fast!!

im currently running around 400bhp, never thought i wud be beat in my liner!
im a bit gutted, oh well going to have to get the credit card out :)

**** the Revengenator... :D
Well 507 bhp in a rolling start are hard to beat, even in a lighter car but with 100 hp less.
There´ll always be somebody quicker or stronger out there, except for some few...

If you had about 380hp at the wheels I think it would have been a fairly level playing field. I stayed with a new RS4 trying it guts out to lose me but the M5 has a lot more power than that and even with nearly 400bhp in my GT-R I know I wouldn't chance it :sadwavey: .

Spend 5000 GBP on tuning your 33 and he needs some more of these "M" buttons:p

These cars are fast,for sure,but they are to heavy to be fast on the track:rolleyes:

You would win as it weighs over 1800kg :clap: 60 bhp makes a hell of a difference as does the gear you are in when the anchors are dropped - he could have been right in the sweet spot while the GT-R was not.

The new M5 with decent fuel has actually dyno'd at 534bhp. A chip will give you 50bhp more.
Nice, was parked beside one yesterday and a very nice car indeed so much better than a crappy M3.

It's difficult to say how hard the M5 is trying. I often take on the likes of a 330i from 50mph, with him in 3rd and me in 4th, just to give them a bit of a puzzler when I leave them for dead at 90mph.
