That is amazing

How was traction for you before with the 270RWHP? I wonder also how traction will be with now with the supercharger. I drove a 3.0si Z4 6speed manual yesterday and was surprised with how much traction it had ! Felt very planted to the extend that it was hard to get the tail out even at low speed. It felt like a roller coaster with the low ride position.

This was all part of a BMW event for breast cancer awareness Susan G Komen and they had an ALPINA B7 which I did not sign up for I only realized how much power it had after I signed up. I saw it up close and the smart people that did sign up accelerate in it. The exhaust note and sheer acceleration of a 4500 lb monster was amazing !!! [BTW - They bent one of the 21 wheels the night before and it took them almost a day to get a replacement but they did. BMW did not spare any expense. I think one wheel was $4500 ]

All the best.
