Non M Laguna Seca Lap Times?

Just did two days at laguna and I am wondwring about lap times.

Car:
330i, 3450lbs, 255 RS3s, TCK DAs, eBay header,

Day1:
1:59 damp track

Day2:
1:50.1 all dry

I saw that spec e46s are hitting low 1:40s but that is much less weight and more hp so I'm just curious where I'm at.

Spec E46 is capped at 225 hp, so you are probably close to that if you have a 330. Weight and tires will make a difference though.

You can find lap times on Harry's LapTimer. Your time seems pretty good. Hard to compare times with different setups though.

I think the biggest difference (don't know your set up) between your car and SE46 cars is going to be suspension (SE46 uses MCS single adjustable), weight and rubber. A good diff can also play a big role.
