F10 M5 60-130mph time

15 September 2013 - 06:58 AM

Yesterday morning it was nice and cool in the DC metro area and I took my F10 M5 out to a private road to get some vbox data. My M5 only has drop-in K&N air filters and Supersprint Race mufflers... That is it. The car had a smidge over 1/2 tank of 93 octane and my 240+lbs behind the wheel.

1st run I decided to just stomp on the gas at about 40mph and let the DCT do its thing. I ended up running an 8.57s 60-130mph time on a 2.03% decline in about -220' DA conditions.

I circled back around and immediately did a standing start. The M5 put down the following numbers (without launch control, without airing down tires, no cool down and no track prep as this is just a normal road) with a 1 foot roll-out like most US car mags use:

0-60mph: 3.67
0-100mph: 7.70
0-120mph: 10.70
0-130mph: 12.49
1/4m: 11.69 @ 125.56 mph (if I average the last 66' like a drag strip it was 124.75mph)

Btw, in the same state of mods it ran 11.835 @ 120.87mph in 2K'+ DA at a track not know for its prep and trap speeds (75-80 Dragway). The same night an '09 CTS-V (auto) with intake and tune was trapping 116mph.

SOLD ***Black Edition Wheels, Dunlops, TPMS

12 May 2013 - 06:31 PM

I recently traded my '09 GT-R and put my stock rims and Dunlop all season tires back on. I had purchased the Black Edition wheels back in late December 2012 from a fellow member here on GT-R Life (I didn't put them on the car until the end of February to avoid exposing them to winter weather). He claimed to have less than 4,000 miles on this set and I have put less than 2K miles on them during my ownership. The wheels are literally in the same exact condition I bought them....which is excellent. The tires are the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx's and have probably more than 50% tread left on them (I am pretty easy on my tires). The package includes the TPMS sensors. EDIT: PRICE DROP:
