Anyone want more power?

Wow - this would be pretty epic. Although the current power output on my M3P+ is brutal when my right foot is in the mood, so with an extra push the thing will be verging on top end supercar territory! :eek:

Agree with adsheff in that more range would be good. Although it isn't something I worry about - even with a lower efficiency in the cold weather.

Our cars just get better with time :) when have you ever heard of that?! ;)
The V5 for a performance is 360
So the M3P was originally circa 444BHP, it got a 5% increase a few months ago taking it to circa 466, and now another 5% in a couple of weeks.... that’s knocking in the door of 500BHP!

The V5 states a max of 360KW so if 5% more results in ~489bhp then it is my understanding that is pretty much the max it could be without having to inform the DVLA

My first car was a T reg Escort 1600 sport. No matter what i tried ( sports exhaust, spare tyre out, wing mirrors in) it just would not do 100mph. 97 or so and that was it.

My girlfriend at the time had family in Inverness ... so when visiting we enjoyed the fabulous long steep hill on the A9 (Daviot) before Inverness ... you could get any beat up car of the day to indicate 100mph going down there (including an 1100 Escort that couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding ... I thought it was going to explode)! [Speed monitoring, the law, and general traffic situation means no longer recommended I'm afraid.]
