    I think I just came in my pants!:scared-eek: They arent too bad. Definitely added some NVH but not unbearable. Its just more pronounced now with all the other modifications and wear of everything around it. Im running the BMW Performance SSK for reference.

    Interesting. Seems like they built new manifolds because the turbos location is much higher than in the stock M275/M279. Reminds me of the Red Dragon SL600 from Speedriven, where a comparable design was taken even further, with the Turbos sticking out of the hood. Would be great to get more details, maybe the owner can chime in if he reads this.

    I saw a pic of custom 8.8 rear axles for an E92 chassis on DSS instagram, assuming they are yours?

    Some good news for some N55 owners. Many N55 BMW owners were updated to a new ROM version during their latest service visit. The ROM update from the dealer resulted in the Accessport no longer being compatible. This affected any 2011 135 or 335 with an N55 engine using the Accesport that received a ROM update from the dealer. Now, this new ROM (98G1B) is supported by the Accessport! Support can be added throught the Accessport by a firmware update. So anyone with an AP, that got screwed with the factory update on the N55. You are now supported. Just update the AP firmware.

    The new G11 generation BMW 7-Series is supposed to be leaps and bounds ahead of its F01 predecessor. Sharper, lighter, faster, more comfortable, more luxurious, and technologically superior. Well, it gets some of these things right. It is not what you would call light. 4832 pounds? Seriously? Ok, it has all wheel drive but that is SUV weight. A Porsche Macan weighs 600 pounds less. A Jeep Grand Cherokee is lighter. Where is the weight loss BMW? The previous generation F01 750li (long wheelbase) weighed 4602 pounds. BimmerBoost is sick of BMW claiming to build lighter cars only to not deliver on its promises. BMW flat out lies. The G11 was supposed to shave 200 pounds off the curb weight. It is not like the Mercedes is a lightweight as it comes in 80 pounds heavier but at this level what does 80 pounds even matter? They both have 53 to 47 percent front to back weight distribution anyway. The Mercedes has the slightly larger engine with the 4.7 liter M278 twin turbo V8 motor. BMW has the 4.4 liter N63TU and it is the better engine design. Horsepower between the two on paper is essentially a wash but based on previous dyno results of these motors the N63TU should have the advantage both in power and torque. Dynographs of S550 4matic and BMW 750 xDrive models are hard to come by. MotorTrend gets caught up in the crank ratings as they always do. They do drag race the cars which reinforces the point that the BMW is underrated a bit and making more power where it matters. The 8-speed automatic's tighter gearing likely helps too but the BMW runs away from the Mercedes in a straight line. For some reason it doesn't click for the presenters that the power is not actually the same. These are indeed luxury cars and not dragsters so which one delivers the best luxury experience? The Mercedes is praised for its interior comfort but criticized for a lack of buttons. Maybe MotorTrend is getting old? It's honestly not that hard to figure out how to increase the volume on the radio. Speaking of which you can use hand gestures to raise the volume in the BMW. That might confuse some of the older buyers but one would have to assume BMW let's you turn this off. Then again, it's BMW. The BMW is criticized for having the same N63TU engine but it is not like Mercedes put a new engine design in the S-Class. The M278 has been with us for quite a while too and it never saw an update while the N63 did. If you're going to criticize BMW here at least mention Mercedes is doing the exact same thing except with an even less impressive powerplant that was never technologically updated. They do get it right that the BMW 7-Series is a lazy refresh. The styling does not push the envelope because BMW is scared of ever doing anything resembling the Bangle era ever again. BMW plays it very safe. The car just adds some gimmicks over the previous generation. Overall, the S-Class does a better job being a luxury cruiser than the 7-Series. BMW forgot where their strengths lie. They are so caught up in electronics and gadgets these days they completely forgot offering the best driving experience was how they made their name. It's a shame the company is so confused about its identity. Both are great cars but the S-Class is a bit more true to its roots. Mercedes has not lost their way. If anything, they are better than ever.

    Hahahaha very funny guys. I was honestly hoping for a update. I know it will be overpriced and no one will buy it but after all that designing and planning it would be nice to see some numbers.
