    i'm a little hard pressed to belive that, the reason being is there a few super cars that can achieve that, let alone an m6, i'm not saying it didn't happen, but it sure didn't look like he was going 205mph, it looked more like 150-160mph.

    watch the video again
    look at the location of the needle on the left (thats the speedometer)
    notice that it is all the way at the last didgits on the speedometer
    now look at this picture http://www.rsportscars.com/foto/04/bmwm605_hud.jpg
    notice the numbers where the needle was in the video
    330 km/h

    the M6 is electronically limited from the factory to 155mph
    but it has all the potential in the world to hit 200+ mph
    it has a 500bhp V10 (same engine that is in the new M5)

    200mph is not as fast as it once was
    hell the 200 mph mark has been acheived by a supercharged civic

    TRUE, i guess. i did notice the gauge was at 330klm, but when the camera looks up at the road, it doesn't look that fast, it could just be the camera. good job to the guy thou, 50 more miles an hour and he can keep up with the bugatti veyron!

    Some cars "feel" faster than others.

    I doubt it will keep up with a veyron...the bugatti will get up to speed a lot faster. Not to mention, the bugatti is "limited" to a 250mph top speed from the factory, just like bmw is limited to 155mph.

    i wasn't saying that the m6 could smoke it or anything, i was just saying its could possibly hit the same speed, sorry.

    belive me, that veyron will smoke anything, the m6 is no compitetion.
    still a nice car that m6 is though.

    One of the guys in my car club just took delivery of a new 06' M5. He's only 110 miles into the 1500 mile break in. Till then, he can't go above 6k RPM, or use the 'M' mode.

    The car is still the balls though.

    m mode changes the fuel and air settings to give it extra hp and on top of that it adjusts the suspension, to give the car a "race feel to it. it unlocks the beast within.

    Why not.

    You compare a $32,000 STi to a $60,000 M3 or $90,000 M5 all the time. [​IMG]

    I love the new BMW lineup, despite what the majority of people on here have said.

    My friend has a new 530i and its tits. Yes, tits, thats the only way to describe it.

    quote me one time i did that.

    go watch that top gear video... its in this forum within the past month.


    basically, it turns the m5 from a lincoln continental into a 360 modena.... or, as Jeremy says, BETTER than the 360 modena.

    You ALWAYS compare everything to the M series, how else would I know that you're a luxury whore? I'm sure if I looked there's a comparison to it somewhere - perhaps in the thread you talked about buying the M3 but I'm not positive. For you, since I joined the board, the measuring stick by which you measure something has always been the M series. Shit look at the emoticons [​IMG] Need I say more?


    ...sidenote, I don't mean that you had to directly say, "The M3 is better than the STi because...this, that, and the other thing" just that you compare them.
