Now running BootMod3 Stage 1, puts it up to around 630bhp. Hmmm, pretty quick for a big bus. Deffo good fun now.

Also OPF removed. Sounds lovely. OPF certainly kills the exhaust note.

Stage 2 is supposedly around 660bhp. Then I think it needs turbos for more on 99 fuel. Some guy running way over 700 (780 I think) on E85 :shock:

This new engine is going to make the new M3 and M4 crazy cars.

Yes. Going to be mental. if they stay stock (if that's 500bhp) they will be very very fast, even in the wet for a change and 500kgs lighter then mine?

I didn’t realise anybody else was in the BM club here. I’ve been in the Full Fat V8 Bi-Turbo version for the last 12 months or so and there’s not many supercars this monster can’t keep up with until the aerodynamics get in the way :mrgreen:
A bit of tweaking and you end up c.750bhp which is crazy in a bus :rocker:

X5M?

I am a bit of a Muppet when it comes to cars. Just about a new one every 6 months 😔. Had loads obviously, love V8s, miss my RS7 but turbos failed so fixed and flogged it.

I think the X5M is actually better on fuel than this bloody 3. 19ish is all I am getting. X5 just too big for what I need lovely car all the same.

Yep, X5M for me
Both cars are Donnington Grey, a great colour with a lot of depth

Mine is debadged for a little more stealthyness :FIREdevil:
