Being a turbo though and thus quite easily liberated, he might have had a bit of work done - chip + increased boost.

It still looked bloody wobbly in the corners, either that or old mate is not a good wheelman
That explains it. You can probably achieve 6.6 by putting your foot down and letting DSG do it's thing. Not as easy in an M3 in S4, DSC on and shifting early.

It was very wobbly, even under brakes it didn't look very stable.
