Popping My M3's Redline Cherry (Rated R For Redline)
Just under a month ago I picked up my 2011 M3 on October 11, 2010. I took
the M3 in for it's 1200 mile service on November 5, 2010 which means one
thing and one thing only...taking the M3 all the way to it's redline and
seeing what this car is truly capable of.
Let me leave it at this: this car is an absolute animal and if my reactions
don't tell you that part of the story. You really have to be in the car to
believe how much power it really has.

BMW M3 E92 - Revs & Acceleration
In this video you will see this great looking M3 E92 revving and making a
Thanks to the owner of the car.
Here is a review of the car:
Similar to the previous M3 generations that introduced a new engine, the
fourth generation M3 did the same: the BMW S65 engine. The S65B40 is a
naturally aspirated, high-revving 4-litre V8 (based on the S85B50 5-litre
V10 that powers the E60/E61 M5 and the E63/E64 M6 to date), delivering 414
bhp (309 kW; 420 PS) at 8300 rpm, with peak torque at 295 lb·ft (400 N·m)
at 3900 rpm, which represents a power increase of 22% over the E46 M3. The
engine weighs 15 kg (33 lb) less than the outgoing six cylinder for a total
weight of 202 kg (450 lb). A six-speed manual transmission is standard. As
from April 2008, BMW offers a new Getrag double-clutch gearbox, called
M-DKG (Doppel-Kupplungs-Getriebe) or M-DCT (Double Clutch Transmission) as
an option, which reduces shift pauses to less than a tenth of a second and
shortens the car's 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time by 0.2 seconds vs.
manual. It features both automatic and manual modes similar to the SMG
gearboxes in the E36 and E46, but with more speed and efficiency.
The E92 M3 coupe inherited a carbon-fiber roof similar to the one used on
the E46 CSL. For 2009, the E9x M3 received the same revisions as non-M 3
series models. Those changes included revised front and rear bumpers, and
LED tail lights. Recent testing by Car and Driver magazine has shown that
the 2011 M3 equipped with an M-DCT transmission accelerated from 0--60 mph
in 3.9 seconds and went on to record a 12.4 second quarter mile time. This
is almost half a second quicker than 2008--2010 M3 models with the same
engine and transmission.
E92 M3 Launch Control Tutorial (In-Car)
I know a lot of E9X DCT M3 owners are a bit confused as far as how to
activate launch control. It's actually pretty easy.
1. The car has to be warmed up.
2. The car has to be driven a few miles.
3. You must be at a complete stop on a level surface.
4. Turn traction control completely off.
5. Set transmission to S6 mode.
6. Push the console mounted shift lever forward and hold it in that
6. Floor the gas pedal past the detent switch under the pedal.
7. The RPMs will rise to 5500*.
8. When ready, release the center console lever and you'll launch...
*The launch RPM can be adjusted in 500 RPM increments by using the cruise
Please keep in mind that as long as you have the throttle to the floor, the
computer will upshift at the rev limit. If you get out of the throttle you
will have to manually upshift or the rev limiter will be hit.
