2009 CLS63 vs. 2008 BMW 335i JB3
Friendly race between a 2009 CLS63 AMG and a 2008 BMW 335i Sedan with a JB3
tune @ 15PSI (v1.3 map7) vishnu intakes, straight Exhaust from cat-back. The BMW had a 1 second
jump on the CLS, and pretty much stayed ahead by a car till the end of 3rd
gear, after than... the video speaks for itself.
If the CLS was launched in Manual mode, it def would have jumped on the
335i and stayed even til 70. It also had heavy ass 3pc 20" wheels on 25
profile tires and a passenger (camera man).
The BMW raced an 06 M5 (experienced driver) and took it by 2 cars, as well
as an 08 M3 sedan.

BMW E39 M5 Maintenance Cost - How Expensive Is It Really?
Vehicle Virgins discusses the maintenance cost on Parker Nirenstein's 2001
BMW M5. While the car is by no means unreliable, parts and labor are very
costly so it is quite expensive to maintain. In his 2.5 years of ownership
a combination of tires, brakes, clutch, driveshaft and other miscellaneous
parts have totaled just under $10,000. Is it a lot? Yes. Is it worth it?
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.
