Default S2k vs. BMW 135i

I raced with BMW 135i on i35 highway on Saturday. We did 3 pull. 1st from 65, I shift to 4th gear, and I was 5 car length ahead. 2nd pull: from 55, I shift to 3rd, I was 5 to 8 car length ahead. 3rd pull, from 55 to 120, by 120, I was 8 car length. We gave our thump's up and parted away. That's felt good. My is supercharged. I'm wondering how stock can match up with 135i, anyone?

I raced one when they first came out, it looked a little different than any other 135i's I've seen to date. it was a silver one but it had a black roof, black trunk & a black hood. we did 2 runs from about 60-90 and he got me by 1-2 car length on both runs.

I drive a 135 right now w/ a JB4. A stock s2k has absolutely no chance, what does your supercharged car make?

135i, 335i are monsters just with bolt-ons and a chip.

Wish there was a video.

My s2k makes 376whp. Yes Andrew Lin, it was an easy win.

The 1 series is a half ass sports car though - the basic formula has been clean sheet double wishbones, 2 seats and a convertible option since like ever. The 1 series right out the gate is handicapped by struts and the propensity to overheat.

The first time I saw one on track it was the berk car and it was skipping all over the track, looked like a complete mess of a sports car. But since it's a bmw I'm sure people will be all like nuh uh it's the shiznit y0!

It looks like BMW is moving back towards the double wishbone if the new x5 and 5 series are any proof so the next 1 series might be a much better car.

Stock they are set up for a much different audience than you and I. Modern BMW non M cars are initially really out of place. I mean the freaking thing has an open diff with that motor? The bushings are set up for the stock runflats rock sidewalls and are incredibly soft and the thing goes into limp mode from heat incredibly quick.

However... That Berk car you brought up is demolishing track and class records left and right. Breath on them a little bit and they are really, really fast. The short wheelbase and the N54 motor make for a seriously potent package. The 1M is undoubtedly the best platform BMW currently makes.

Here goes Duke Togo talking about suspension like he knows anything... STFU you idiot, a 135i (Especially the Berk car) will destroy your POS S2000 on the track.

Dude, ignore him. He's a retard that thinks he knows what he's talking about, he reads a couple of things about 'struts' and 'double wishbones' on the Internet and he's suddenly an expert. He does this all the time in the SoCal forum.

Lol ok, good to know. They are a really potent package and fly under a LOT of peoples radar. However there is a reason I have a 135 and want an s2k! I really, really like my car, it just takes a lot (read $$$$) to get it where I wan't to be where an s2k is there stock. Plus some aero and mild suspension and they are faster than my 400hp car w/ coils, control arms etc.
