Thanks mate! I hadn't actually thought about that.. would probably be a loud experience! Best run of the day was 162mph (165 on the speedo) over the 1.5 mile stretch - maybe next time I'll try it with the roof down! :smile:

If you go roof down, here's a thought....

Do Wind restrictor do a screen with attached parachute?:surprise:

Great run! Great soundtrack too. :tu:

Loved seeing the M3 in the mirror, that was a nice touch. :D
Thank you mate :smile: Oh yes, that's where M3's belong isn't it? :wink:

The car sounds sexual....:grin:

Very good run seeing as you had a passenger also.
Thanks :smile: - also had luggage in the boot!

Good job!

Are you stock? (Can't remember if you've done any mods).
Mods at the mo are the X-Pipe & Secondary cat delete and an engine & gearbox remap. Got it pulling monster torque now, which I'm happy with! Last time out on the hub dyno, was around 370bhp and 425lb/ft.

Do you have a in car vid vs the GTR? How did you fare?
I do indeed, however it doesn't have any sound for some reason.. stupid phone.

I'll post it later on or tomorrow. Needless to say, didn't fare too well.. :crying: He hit 190 and I did 158 on that particular run. 700bhp vs 370bhp >:D

:tu::Beer:

Well that was a no contest. :laugh: I think I need to scratch that GTR itch next.
Yep. He's a mate of mine who's just picked it up and within a week had a full uprated turbo kit fitted for many £'s! It's touching 720bhp and will likely be over 900 by the end of year.

Here is a list of the speeds from the day.. Ignore my 177 - they mixed up mine with my friends in the AMG GTS on one of our runs. My correct top speed was 162. :)

BMW kill

Good run mate. Is your car's speed limiter turned off with the reprograming of the ECU? I assume so. I loved seeing the Range Rover on the list. :nerd:

Thanks mate - next time I should probably get rid of my passenger and the luggage in the boot!

Yeah the car's limiter was removed as part of my remap.
