" MB is sure on a roll lately. All their designs are gorgeous IMO. There is no doubt in the mind that they exude luxury and prestige. This is probably the best interior so far, it is beautiful! I hate to lust over cars but God forgive me "

" Getting close to the decision making stage of the process, outside of pro days and in-house visits, most of the tape study is done. From a high level standpoint, we’ll now start to put together a big board, and get a rough feel for specific players we feel strongly about (good or bad). Here's one I am personally on the fence about. I should add more interior players, but the reports for a guard or 3 tech tackle aren’t particularly sexy reads.

Bradley Roby 5.010 194

Positives:
-Prototype reactive athlete. Very good-excellent traits all around in that regard. Tested as a top level player in the relevant drills (3 cone, standing broad, 10 split, vert leap). Athleticism carries over to the field, not a shorts and tee shirt guy.
-Sudden and explosive out of his back pedal. When playing off or in a zone look, can break down and drive on the underneath crossing or comeback routes.
-Loose hips and ankles. Again, movement skills are his finest attribute and are near rare. Potentially the best in this class. Longer arms help him play taller than listed height.
- Very good long speed. I see a true 4.4 type player who won’t be easily run by at the pro level.
-Well proportioned build. Thick upper body with good muscle mass to re-route players. "

" BMW was never known for the best sounding exhaust notes. Besides the S85, nothing else from BMW comes close. Yea, the S65 is loud, but what V8 isn't. This car will perform much better than an other M. The exhaust can be modified. "

" Car sorted!!! DME replaced and the fuse holder behind glove compartment houses the power distribution relays inside of it which you can't get to unless you strip out half the car. So it was a power spike from the live wire touching the ecu when the tuners were busy with the JB4. "

You think its maddening? Try multiplying that times about 50 and realizing all these good people are waiting on something promised so long ago. Its beyond maddening. Bottom line is, if I just brought it to them first it would have been done long ago, but they have had it for a while, I need to see some more progress. But they are an awesome shop and great guys, I know this is not the only project they are working on. "

On the street I bet it makes pretty good boost by 3000RPM, making it a TON of fun
I honestly doubt this is the case, a lot of people are willing to spend $2500-4800(depending on options and who does the install) for 450-550WHP, not many are willing to spend $6000-$9000 for the same with a little more reliability. We actually have something coming soonish which should fit right in between these 2 areas. "

Depends on the kit and what you include. A high quality turn key kit from FFTEC is probably around 9k installed. "

Planning on it. The backup car is DrN55 which would be a huge drop off. Jon @ BMS is racing our M5. "
