    Interesting.... So are we talking a Stage 1 S3 (only remap, no CAI/exhaust) vs a standard 335i? What does flashed mean?

    From the video there doesnt seem to be much in it....

    Even with that dodgy white roofliner the S3 is so much better looking than that 3 series. That rear light cluster is the worst look to ever come out of BMW - they improved it pretty quickly with the shape on the new M3.
    Looks like that 3 is faster than the S3 to me though - do you know which map the S3 has ?

    Seems to me like the S3 loses out on the gear chnages more than anything else. Otherwise fairly close i'd say..

    Think thats a pretty good result for the S3, them 335i with re-map are quick!

    What sort of power is it running mate?

    as has been said the 335i will be circa 360-370bhp

    IF thats a manual ( S3 ) v ( 335i ) auto it's a good result when you way it up.

    No the 335 has just got much longer gears.

    The remap is by a local company called Frieling-Racing. Makes 281hp on all 4 wheels & 318 lb-ft on the wheels. I think that's around 350hp at the engine, but I have to go back to the dyno to confirm.

    ^^^^^That seems high from a remap + intake 315-330bhp would be in keeping with what we have seen so far with the S3

    I have been in a mapped 335i and I would be very surprised if a mapped S3 could better it, the 335i is easily producing 360/370 bhp, there is a slight weight disadvanatage as the 335 is a big car.

    I would like to see the same duel between a mapped 135i (On my wish list) and a mapped S3, if its dry my money is on the 1'er, if it's wet game over !!

    ^^^^^^Thats the point Spin , if the OP's S3 is 330bhp and the 335i is 370bhp then the S3 is doing well to stay with it!

    You would have to think that a 135i with 370bhp would run away a little from a mapped S3.

    steve jnr at stattler reported the same thing when they raced an s3 with giac and evoms against a mapped 335i.

    He pretty much said there was nothing in it which given that the bmw is 3.0 6cyl bi turbo is pretty impressive!!!!!

    325psi : How about a video of your 335i vs ur S3 ?

    That I am sure will be BLOOD on the dance floor for the S3.

    Hey Bhai, it's hard to drive 2 cars at the same time ;) Just kidding, I ran them a while back. 335 is a bit stronger, especially up top. But mine is the older spec with the older ECU, so FRC have given me a bit more boost.
