this is the description from youtube, it seems that quite a few people miss it xD

"decided to try a dyno with my car, it has 240k km, 1997.I was hesitant at first since i thought i was going to be disappointing by having less HP than the car is supposed to have, but luckily i was wrong.
I had 94 octane gas in it, engine was warm,the engine is pretty much stock besides the K&N filter ( not cold air intake),straight pipes and brand new spark plugs.
the car new is supposed to have 282 hp and 320 ft of torque,
According to the dyno the 540i got 303.6hp and 324.3 lb of torque
( 264 whp,and 282 torque at the wheels) I was very surprized to know that a 15 yr old car still has factory spec HP after such a long time, and so many KM.

Given all your research, what makes Mopac's dyno one of the best all around in Vancouver?

Also, what makes Mopac's dyno one of the best in Vancouver to bring a BMW to or is the automaker irrelevant?

It makes them the best in my opinion because thats the one that most people used/suggested in Vancouver and they did a great job.Who cares though?

You're saying Mopac is one of the best dynos in the area and that you've done a lot of research to support that statement, I was interested to hear your research based justification, that's all. Clearly you didn't actually do much research though.

Let's get this straight,.

You drive a 318is and you're insulting a person who drives a 320i, right, makes complete sense. You wonder how a person who drives a 320i could live with the knowledge a Corolla would win in a straight line race against them, well, you can probably answer that question yourself, because the 318is has 12 horsepower less than the 320i. I make that statement with assumption of an E36 to E36 comparison.

320icar doesnt even have a bmw anymore, and has had plenty of cars since his old 320i days.

also his older 320i was turbo'd. just sayin.

hahahahahahha this OP is pathetic. there is no other words to describe him and his incredibly miniscule penis. he even tried to troll my user page

http://www.revscene.net/forums/membe...itor_messaging

in the past he has tried to dig up old threads of mine and troll them on other websites, only to find out that those cars are long gone. he only succeeds in making himself look more foolish.

just give up on life already man. seriously. if you didn't act like a jackass on these forums, we would never troll you. but hey, when you pop up on the next random website, rest assured we will already be there to belittle you some more.

This is Nestea69's forumula

Post about his cars to try and get compliments ->
get insulted because the work he has done are shit ->
try and defend his shitty work with statements like "my 318is is better than a M3", or "my 318is gets more attention than an aston martin ->
get called on such statements ->
create new online account to back himself up ->
insult other members on cars they no longer own to feel better about himself

First order of business: get that M badge off.

The people that truly appreciate an M5 know that is not a true M car, and the people that don't know what an M5 is aren't impressed by a badge.
