C280 Vs. Bmw X3 Si

Hi Guys,,, Last night I was almost 1400 KM, when i have decided i wont wait for that extra 100 km to be finished... Streets were empty and lots of midnight racers were roaming the streets seeking a prey.

So i took it for the first spin alone ( rev the engine to the utmost) before engaging with someone and get smoked...

Honestly,, the engine with the 231 BHP is ok,,, but it can not be compared to my X3 3.0 SI (272 BHP).... Althought,,, Merc claims a 0-100 km/h in 7.2 Vs BMW 7.5.... The Bmer feels alot faster,,,, And I mean ALOT!!

I dont know what the hell is wrong with Merc ; 232 compared to the 272 BHP 330i !! although they have the same displacement.

I am really considering a kit or anything that would boost some power.... any recommendations

Get sprint booster or throtle reprogramming, that will help launch your car a bit faster. BMW tune their car to sprint faster off the line. MB has a delay on the throttle.

...wrong car. Should have gotten the 500hp version. Bet that would smoke the competition.
