    It would be cool to get those cars over here... but I would just miss the sound of a gasoline engine... but 500ft lb of torque is enticing.

    1) Thank you for this.
    2) That dyno room is you could eat off of the floor!
    3) That rear on that e60 535d is so hawt5! What spoiler and it has quad exhaust pipes unlike the 535 gasoline model? More pics now!!!!
    4) Massive torque...I wonder if the top-end dies like a bird hit by a shotgun blast. 4000rpm and then what?

    Usually the newer diesels are better than the classic diesel "1200 rpm power band". I am not sure what the modern BMW diesels rev out to but I bet its pretty usable!

    European shops are far cleaner than American shops typically And yes, yes indeed very hot e60!

    I am amazed at two things:

    the power that those oil burners are pushing. :drool1

    the idea of just using the tow eyes to hold those cars down. I've snapped 7 of those hooks so far in various recovery and other attempts and these guys use ONLY them to hold down a car?! maybe they ship us the defective tow eyes?

    Hey man, I'm a professional!

    all new diesel are going past 5K now. rev up to petroleum engines. i blame californian for the diesel cut. more likely the stop of tuning vehicle soon. i would love to get audi a3 2.0L turbo diesel quattro.

    oh wait look who has a 335d for sale.

    manual? I thought BMW failed in this regard as they were only importing automatic diesels?

    ....I love the American muscle representing there, they seem so out of place yet so perfect to enjoy there.

    Beautiful facility you have there. Looks like the operator is wearing a lab coat in one of the pics.

    FYI Cam, that's an E60 with the full Hamann Widebody treatment.

    Beautiful, thanks for posting. I got the diesel love every time I drive the Chevy. It would be great to have it packed a sexy BMW body like some of the cars in the first post.

    Wait, did the C6 Z06 put down 477hp to the wheels? Stock? Don't understand...

    Hmmm, so is that a general consensus that the C6 Z06 is overestimated? I would've thought the contrary...
