    18g wrx vs BMW 650i

    So my friend has a BMW 650i and I took a ride in it and drove it myself. The car is nice I mean come on its a BMW, but my friend thought about a race. I would like to know what the outcome of the race would be seeing as how I dont think I will actually end up racing him.

    So what do you think an automatic BMW 650i

    or

    An 18g WRX 5-speed???

    In case you dont know here are the specs

    Anything other than 18G and supporting mods?

    OTS map? Protune?

    I thought I made it clear I am not into street racing. Yes I know traction is MUCH better in school zones during school hours but thats not my style I was just asking out of curiosity.

    O and for the mods I have
    DW 750 injectors
    NGK 1 step colder iridium plugs
    Walbro 255 LPH fuel pump
    TBE
    STi TMIC
    protune at the end of the month currently on the OTS cobb map

    I don't think the regular 6's are that fast, they are more of a luxo barge. Now if it was an m6. They are nice looking cars though.

    BMW 6's are very fast...but also pretty heavy. The engines in them, like many BMWs cater to the top end speeds...in a quarter mile drag, you'd probably beat him pretty well with your 18g. But if you went any further, he'd really start to gain on you past 105mph or so.

    Good move on keeping it safe

    i did a 90 roll with one of them(645i) because we were already going that fast on the highway. i then got a 1-2 car headstart cuz of no turbo lag in 4th and he basically stayed on my ass all the way to 120

    No no no that's not right at all. The wallaby would obviously take it. I will admit from a roll maybe the platypus would have a chance.

    Where did that come from? I'm I missing something?

    The only response I saw was "take it to the track..."

    confused...

    Anyway, it's a BMW, so how can it lose?!

    He's refering to the famous 18G vs VIPER on 8 Mile post.
    That's when I race an old VIPER and get slammed by everyone.
    To each his own.

    Peace....I get slammed by everyone. It's almost not worth posting any more but whatever...
