Hi all,

went to santa pod on Sat/Sun, much much less grip than the road!

Best time was a 15.26 car is a touring 328i automatic completely stock with running in mileage of 143,000. Which as it turned out wasn't too shabby looking at stock times, i think a 328i is 15.00 (manual).

E36 evo convertible was doing very high 13s and a few low 14s
335d was doing low 14s

friends st200 was doing 16s all day and one 15.4 which was a turn up for the books, i thought he would dump on me.

friend in his cosworth couldn't put the power down, but managed a 13.6.

The photographer said i had photo of the day Saturday. So i will get it scanned and post it up,

Cheers

Rob,

all i know is its a monster, something like over 500bhp 4x4 and striped right out. Its a total monster and he uses it at the moment for drags etc, but pretty sure he has all the goodies to make it a track weapon when he feels like it.

There are a few videos of it floating about at the moment from saturday, you can see all 4 wheels spinning on the start line lol. Animal.

Do BMW have one of these kind of shows? and is there a big modification side to BMW? not things like neon lights etc, but performance upgrades, track cars, strip cars etc

yep there is the BMW show at Gaydon on August 16th (i think) and the Bmw show at santa pod in september (i think the 20th) if you look on www.santapod.com it will tell you :thumbsup
