I'm trying out my GTech so I'm driving along. An M5, newer model with black rims flys by me screaming something out... I stomp, SC kicks in and I'm reeling him... as I'm reeling him in, his passenger puts out his digital camera, recording me reeling him. We get to a light and guy doesn't put his window down, so I'm like whatever.. light turns green he jumps... I jump and walk him... i let off cuz I'm pulling... then he catches up and flys by again.. He makes a left turn, I follow him and pull up next to him, windows up and tinted dark. I motion over to go again at the light, but they shout something like.... '..you're driving a Lexus..'
Point of the story: You're gonna run somebody, run them. Piss on this you get beat.. the guy puts his brakes on , don't accellerate and then do a fly by like you beat him..
I'd like to see if his vid makes it to a BMW forum saying, '.. I took a boosted IS300.. check him out behind... :rolleyes: '

Sorry, but how fast is your S/C?

I've seen a few S/C and they are undoubtedly nice, but taking the e60 (2006) M5? A kill is a kill, but just curious for a little more specifics of this story.

i doubt a LMS sc kit could beat a new M5....i could be wrong but i dont think the LMS kit even puts down enuff to take the M5 maybe an older one but the new ones are a beast

So your S/C kit gets you to 60 faster than 4.5 seconds? By walking, I would assume 60 would be .5 seconds or faster.

I really, really hate to say this, but I think either this story is embellished/improperly told, or just flat out BS. I dont see how you could have realistically walked an M5 to 60, especially considering the fact that he "jumped" from the line.

I didnt even know the M5 is on the roads yet. Are you sure it wasnt a 525 or 530?

First deliveries for the new M5 were the first of this month, hardly enough time for people to break in the engine.

M5's will walk 550 maranellos and 911 turbo x50's and keep pace with Gallardos. Your car must be pretty damn fast to walk him.

S/C has a limit. I'm not sure what the HP is, but I dont believe its enough to eat an M5.

Hell, Stage III IS3's rarely even break into the 4s range to 60.

I'm just shrugging.

he's running a custom kit. Vortec SQ2 unit. Those units are very good at top end.

Definitely not Magoo/Miktrebla09... definitely not.

could have been a badged up 5 to make it look like an M, it was black, fixed up and all I could see was the M on the back as I was pulling. It definitely wasn't a 2006 model, I could tell by the front in my side mirror. Come to think of it I didn't see it on the side as I pulled up next to it.. I did walk him fairly easily for an M5..

I didn't really want to report a 'Kill', but just to vent about the idea of someone doing a flyby and there's only 1 reason you shoot a vid as you pull ahead, to show you smoked someone.
Yes, as Bob mentioned this is not an LMS SC, its a Vortech SQ2, spinning at its max. BTW, according to the GTech my torque was 282 :suspiciou and HP was 168 :suspiciou
I don't get this GTech..

your not getting good G-Tech readings because your supposed to go slow like 30 and shift into like 3rd or 4th gear and then gun it, like a real dyno. If this is done properly, you'll need a lot of clear road ahead of you.
I have found that the Dyno part of the G-Techs aren't very accurate. you might get a more accurate 1/4 mile.

A 540i would still give a nice run.

Ok, so you're saying it was the previous generation M5?


I'll definitely give you a :approve: for that! I've just heard that the new M5 is rediculous, my friend is a manager at a local BMW and he had the chance to drive it...its just sick.

Well if it was the new 545i, that would be the newest model. He said it definitely wasn't the new model, no?

yeah... its not the newer model, the difference in the headlights are very pronounced.
the black wheels were definitley aftermarket. Maybe I'll see him around again. Just pissed me off you know.
Are you gonna run or what? Don't do this... get beat.. then speed up to pass once the other car is slowing down. For pete's sake, I slowed down to let him come up and compliment him on his ride, not to rub it in. Oh well..
