Oh dear, I can't stop laughing!
Thats the stock form of a Vti.I'm guessing that would be a no. lots of answers all avoiding the question
100bhp per litre was quite impressive when the Mclaren F1 produced iirc 627 bhp from its 6 ltr BMW engine and the E(whatever) M3 of the same era produced 321bhp from its 3.2 ltr N/A engine , but when its 160bhp from a 1.6 shopping trolley its not impressive at all, bearing in mind most modern diesels produce more bhp with a massive wave of low down torque to drag the slightly heavier body down the road, even less impressive when that's about half the specific output of your crappy daily @Matt-SRI
As previously mentioned the BM would be round the bend and over the horizon before the Marbella has even thought about where the apex might be
Or to put it another way, 160bhp/0.9= 177bhp/tonne against 315/1.5=210bhp/ tonne - whichever way you look at the BM is long gone
Unless of course the magical Malaga has a lot more power, but without a gallery thread we will just have to take the word of someone on the internet
I await to be proven wrong
You know you're replying to someone who isn't me don't you?Thats the stock form of a Vti.
Look up my cousin whi helped me build my Del Sol.
With non stock control arms, tie bars, and camber on thw rear... not to wvem mention the brake upgradesI have. Your Nazi wagon will be screeching on the bends like a jew in a gas chamber to search for grip as my Del Slo goes round effortlessly.
The Civic EG Im building which is twinned with cox motorsport car of mu cousin has proven itself.
Like I said, your stock lumpy Bmw does not even have me sweating unless it's a straight line drag race.
Even my Transstop is removed to add lightness..
What you may not realise is that the EG civic and the del sol are the same car.
Problem is with a bmw. As soon as its a bit moist, all that torque is not usable. Just like when i spectated at brands hatch.. time and time again. Rwd is excellent in perfect and dry conditions.
Loads of torque, no good without traction.
Also, how late can you brake in a 1 series? Not that late compared to a Del sol.
Lets see how many threads pop up on your 135i over the next year about fuel pump issues and rattling turbos.
I use to work in a hospital and my colleagues were doctors and had them cars from new.. saw all the issues with them.
Ill post a video up of my EK.. i dont care about figures. Football games are not won on team lists of paper and races are not won by dyno runs.
Ill upload my old turbo set upif i find it on my phone.
Depends on the track/driver.Take it to the extreme, do you think the bmw would beat a lotus elise round the track with it's poxy little engine?
Would be slightly less useful as a workhorse for me then thoughThat 135i.. rip the seats out.. remove the window mechanisms..weld the rear doors... switch to perspex windows and minimal inteior leaving only air con and a watered down stereo..
Then upgraded conrrol arms and srive shafts... the bmw will be even more agressive with a remap ans sime negative negative camber on the rear.
For mods, the BMW has overwhelming potential.
Ouch!! Better than me. My partner would cry if i spent that in one go.So back on topic
1800 miles this month brings us to 43600. I've just done my last work journey of the year so it will probably only do 100 miles between now an Jan 2nd.
No outlay this month, will need new rear tyres in the not too distant :barefoot:
RFL - £280 - October '17
M performance exhaust - £375 - October '17
Exhaust clamp/bush - £33.75 - October '17
Exhaust fitting - £35 - November '17
Interim service - £150 - November '17
or £5955.58 per month.
You can always have vote to have me suspended you ignorant dumb c*nt.Nice workhorse Matt, they sound wicked too. Ashlee sounds like an absolute helmet, you call it banter, the funniest bit was the youtube video.
Admin should clean the thread up as no one gives a f*ck about a del sol.
Oh and happy new year!
