2013 BMW 335is - Launch Control Demo
1st Attempt Using Launch Control @ 2,927 (s)miles on the clock.

Got one good launch in around 2.5K and paddle shifting.
Still showed 0-60mph in 4.9 and 0-100mph in 10.5
Guess I need to take it to the drag strip next...

to move over. (Someone was about to get into my lane.)
BMW 335is Cold Start
Cold start on our 2011 BMW 335is Coupe. Exhaust is coming out of the right pipe until
warmup when the flapper valve opens and allows Exhaust out of both pipes, just after 1:00
minute. First couple of revs are to around 1000-1500 RPM, second is to
around 3000 RPM, and the last one is to around 6500 RPM (normally a no-no
on a cold engine but just for demo purposes).
The much-talked about "burble" of the Exhaust is heard as the RPMs come down after a
The camera is a Canon point-and-shoot set on a collapsed tripod about 40"
