to set up the race, my car has an ECIS intake, uuc pulleys and fan delete mod. All i can tell about the g35 was it had the touring package and a 6 speed. So i was going home after a long day in school and i see a G35 coming up fast. So i turned traction control off and got ready to show him what BMW is all about. He gets along side of me going 50 mph and were slowing down for a red light ahead but im in 3rd gear and waiting for the light to turn green. The light turns green and we both floor it, i hear the guy in the g35 shift into 3rd. I was in kinda low RPM's in third but my torque kept me along side and once i got into higher rpms in 3rd i pulled a half a car. Into 4th i still had that lead but the g35 started to pull up on me. He finally passed me when i was at 110 mph by a half a car and than we both slowed down because a turn was coming up. it was a good race and afterwords we both gave the . I was very proud of my car considering he started in a lower gear!!!
the G35 was a coupe and not to make excusses, but he started in a lower gear and if it were the 1/4 mile i would have beat him. My car pulls hard in 1st so i think i would have him off the line. either way that was a nice brand new car that had to race till 110 to beat a 2.8 liter bmw with 97,000 miles! i also had a lot of weight in my car, 12inch sub, amp, 20lb books, and a full tank of gas. The next car that i want to race is Deloriant 328is, who would like to see that video???. this race was not a smoking, it was a great race.
Hi!! G35s wouldn't beat any "non M BMW models." Let the new 3-series come out. 258hp baby!! 10 more hp in the sport package in the Coupe. That's around 270hp. Now beat that!! I know the new G35 has 298hp but we all know that BMWs will less hp take out cars with more hp. The new 530i will also use that 258hp engine.
Also, don't forget that the current E46 model is 7 years old. The new E90 agains the G35, now that's a better comparison.
