    I'll take mine if I can do my Fiat too and add them together ? I reckon the Fiat could almost make up for the drive-train losses on the BMW.

    I would be up for this but not keen on driving massive miles for it, where too in Somerset or south west would it be?

    Was Performance 3000 any good mate? I am from Yeovil and have thought about putting my M on there rollers?

    Rolling roads are usefull if you use the same one a lot, they can vary so much if you use different ones its pointless. They give a representation of improvements made and are a good way to take data logs if you have no logger incar. In the same week I saw 419bhp and 402bhp at the wheels (4wd) and it was the same temps and humidity, just 2 different roads. Now I have a far smaller turbo however.

    If this is still going to happen, I'd love to bring the M3 up to see what's what.

    For what it's worth, and it's been mentioned many times already, I too have experienced a variety of different results with my old Leon Cupra R on rolling roads. I find if there are enough people/cars there to compare against then you can kind of get an idea for how the RR is operating that day. Most people know if there car is putting out well or not, and there is always somebody there who knows exactly what their car is capable of.

    One session I went to there were about 20 people, most of which were disappointed by the figures, but there were also a couple of chaps with perfect engines and their cars put out exactly what they expected. So it just goes to show how some RR's will either try to quote you happy or are set up badly. But in this case the RR was bang on.

    Mik
