    Bimmers have great high end accelleration I used to have a `92 525i and my friends Golf VR6 would toast me all the time off the line or a slow roll. Until we hit the straightaway on a bridge one time from around 80 and I started to pull as we got above 100 and kept doing so up to 140 when we had to slow from the curve.

    I love teh Germans.

    Your friends are pretty understanding.

    If one of my friends hit 140 while I was in the car I would be certain to punch them in the throat once we got out.

    Not sure, Id assume it puts less down due to drivetrain loss but the AWD traction will make up for the difference.

    I dont think it would bother me, depends on how much i trust you i guess. I have one uncle that I would not let drive me down the block, and another who taught me how to drive with my knees.

    the AWD system weighs like 400lbs and is not nearly as smooth as ours or audis

    Rear biased Torsen differential. Its the same idea as Quattro and the Spec.B and 08 STI's AWD system.

    yea i heard it was the same one as on the x5 which would account for the extra weight.


    Edit: i am sure i have read reviews of the system vs audi and the Quattro was regarded as lighter and more responsive.

    I'm not 100% but they should be about the same. Both are designed to get you out of a snow bank, they are not for performance. Also they can start if only one wheel has traction which our AWD cannot (er pre 08, the VDC might help).

    Hummer, Mitsubishi S-AWC, Acura SH-AWD, Audi Quattro (non-haldex ie TT, A3), BMW x-Drive, Subaru Symmetrical are the top AWD systems.

    You were at a major disadvantage due to the extra 3 people in your car. Figuring they weight 150 average, plus throw in another 100 for the stuff in the trunk, that cuts down weight/power ratio pretty badly:
    Unloaded (just driver): 3250 / 303 = 10.73 lb/HP
    Loaded (3 passengers plus luggage): 3800 / 303 = 12.54 lb/HP

    You effectively reduced your your HP by ~14%, plus you didn't downshift. I'd say you ran very respectably versus the BMW.
