    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....

    It's my S3. It has remap + intake.

    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.
