Nice Rob!



Tuningwerk is also another company that offers everything and they are in Germany. In fact their 2 series was on the front of bimmerpost for awhile. They also offer an upgraded fan and oil coolers to keep the heat at bay as well when pushing the power.

I should have been right there on mine, Rob does have downpipes installed but i dont know if he had them when he ran this. Awesome time though. Would love to get a roll race in, i think i shift better than my truck.

Your truck should have it! Those downpipes really get it off the line. I went out about 2 weeks ago and just wasnt launching well at all. Track was in terrible conditions.

You know... I really can't remember. It has to be close to 3 years ago. I think I was manually shifting, traction off, M mode and what not. Too many beers...

LOL no worries Ill try to figure it out. Nice trap speeds in your M5! How do you like the car? Try any AMGs before you got the M5.

Great thread guys, it's awesome to look back over years of guys racing these trucks. As soon as we have ours later this month I will start documenting the gains we see with tune, downpipe, etc. Still torn on which tune to select.

1/4 mile X6 50i

Ran my 2011 X6 50i at the track last night. Island Dragway NJ. Temp was 78 and humid. JB Stage 1(default settings) and AR catted DPs. For some reason my computer wasn't reading my USB cable correctly and couldn't connect to the software to up the boost more.

Best was 13.002 @107
She def has high 12s in her. Other runs were 13.053 and 13.028 all at 107. Need to solve the USB connection problem to adjust the boost. Otherwise, I'm hauling ass for a 50i with the Stage 1. Stage 2 must be amazing!

Here's a post from the heartbreaker track of America, Bandimere Speedway, at 5800 ft elevation...

I took delivery of the car Thursday (back from the transporter - it never got shipped - long story) and drove it back to Denver, and continuing a tradition of taking our new cars to the track as soon as you have them, we went out to Bandimere Friday night. My wife got launch control (probably?) figured out, and this was the result:





That run was with me in the passenger seat, 3 kids' car seats in the back, the spare, etc. There's probably at least 1/10th better in there without the additional ballast.

13.5 is pretty quick for any stock car at Bandimere. As an example my CTS-V ran 13.0 @ 107 stock. Looking forward to getting her car into the 12s with downpipes and a tune!

Did you ever get times/HP readings with your gutted cats? You for sale post is the most conclusive mention I've seen that they're still a good option over $1300+ aftermarket pipes. Can you say why you chose ESS over all the companies out there?
