Battle of the Bimmers: BMW M3 v BMW 135i v BMW 335i
Before you start sending us flaming e-mails complaining that a comparison
between the 2008 Audi S5 and the 2008 BMW M3 Coupe is an obvious mismatch
from the get-go, you should know a few things.
Our first full test of the $53,000, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 was a bit
of a revelation. With a 354-horsepower version of Audi's
direct-injection 4.2-liter V8 under its hood, the voluptuous Audi S5 ran a
13.3-second quarter-mile at 104 mph, just 0.1 second and 2 mph shy of the
420-hp 2007 Audi RS4 sedan. What's more, the S5's slalom speed is within a
couple mph of the harsh-riding RS-spec sedan. "It ran a 13.3? With that
kind of speed, who needs a $67,000 RS4?" we asked ourselves.
We believe so strongly in the 2008 Audi S5 that it earned our Inside Line's
inaugural Editors' Choice Award.
So we acquired (hastily perhaps) another 2008 Audi S5 and set it against
the new 2008 BMW M3 Coupe, a car now fortified with V8 power for the first
time. Speed-reading the specifications sheets of these two cars, they seem
like natural rivals: the 354-hp, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 measured
against the 414-hp, rear-wheel-drive 2008 BMW M3.
But as it turns out, we gave the 2008 Audi S5 a bigger challenge than we
had initially intended.
E92 M3 Track Car Build by Turner Motorsport
This black 2008 M3 coupe was brought to us by it's owner with only 4,600
miles on the clock. He asked us to transform his M3 from a street car into
a dedicated track beast, custom built to his needs. It received a TMS
fabricated "standard" race/track cage setup, MOTON coilovers, full race Exhaust (with cat-delete), software, TMS
Power Pulley, carbon fiber roof (car originally had a sunroof with steel
panel), Forgeline 18x10" non-staggered race wheels with 275 width Hoosiers,
custom built center console, retained iDrive (strictly monitoring engine
oil level and other electronic features), BMW Performance Steering wheel,
fire extinguishing system, racing harnesses, baseline suspension setup, and
many many more features and products. The end result: This M3 is FAR
lighter than a standard "street" E92 M3, and benefits from added horsepower and torque over
stock. After some track time and dialing in of both the car and driver,
this Turner-built E92 M3 will be the ultimate weapon for track days.
