    If you talk to Germans you know they think their stuff is the best. They don't even entertain buying anything other than German unless it's some exotic or something. They have a bit of a superiority complex.

    We are seeing more and more tunes for the M276 DELA30 motor. The W205 C43 AMG 4Matic which is essentially the new version of the C450 Sport. The car has 362 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque as rated by Mercedes. The Renntech baseline dyno shows the car is slightly underrated as they calculate the crank output at 375 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. The wheel output is measured at 311 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. Renntech's ECU flash tune bumps this to 345 all wheel horsepower and 382 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels. In other words, over 400 crank horsepower and a large torque increase. Not bad for just an ECU tune without any supporting mods. It will be interesting to see if these get over 400 all wheel horsepower with just basic bolt ons. It is available for all of the 43 AMG models except the new E43 AMG which has larger turbochargers. RENNtech is proud to announce the release of the ECU Upgrade for the all-new M276 3.0L V6 BiTurbo 43 AMG Series. Available for: W205 - C43 AMG | C205 - C43 AMG Coupe | X253 - GLC43 AMG | C253 - GLC 43 AMG Coupe | W166 - GLE43 AMG | C292 - GLE43 AMG Coupe | R172 - SLC43 AMG With the RENNtech ECU+ Upgrade the M276 - 43 AMG gains up to +41 HP and +62 LB-FT, based on power numbers measured by RENNtech. Please note that the Mercedes M276 engine performance when measured, obtains higher numbers than rated from factory. The maximum power number reached with the RENNtech ECU+ Upgrade for the M276 - 43 AMG is 416 HP and 460 LB-FT. Note: Mercedes M276 engine performance when measured, obtains higher numbers than rated from factory. Power gains are calculated with stock numbers measured by RENNtech Crank Performance Numbers are calculated with a 17% Drivetrain loss on 4MATIC vehicles. Our numbers will be dependent on conditions and fuel quality. 93+ Octane gasoline is mandatory with this Performance Upgrade. Performance Numbers Overview 43 AMG (M276 | 3.0L V6 BiTurbo) Stock Performance: Rated by Mercedes-Benz: 362 HP @ 5,500-6,000 RPM;384 LB-FT @ 2,000-4,200 RPM Rated by RENNtech: 375 HP @ 5,600 RPM;398 LB-FT @ 3,300-3,600 RPM Mercedes M276 engine performance when measured, obtains higher power numbers than rated from factory. 43 AMG (M276 | 3.0L V6 BiTurbo) Modified Performance: Rated by RENNtech: 416 HP @ 5,450 RPM; 460 LB-FT @ 3,250-3,600 RPM 345 awhp @ 5,450 RPM; 382 awtq @ 3,250-3,600 RPM

    Current tariff on imported cars to the US is 2.5%, EU has a 10% tariff on imported cars. China has a 25% import tariff, among numerous other taxes. Trump has basically scared all US car manufacturers from moving plants to Mexico now and in the future. Now he is giving warning shots to other manufacturers. Trump's point is we are getting screwed on so many trade deals. BMW is getting huge tax breaks by the Mexican government for building the plant, no state or local taxes. If they want to sell cars in US built in that plant, they should think about passing on those tax savings to US market. Do current BMW owners even want their next gen 3-series built in Mexico? No more euro deliveries?

    Ford released official picture of the convertible Mustang GT shortly after the coupe debuted. Somehow the convertible looks even better but the real focus here is not as much the styling but the technological changes. The dual fuel injection system on the Coyote V8 and the bump in compression to 12.0:1 is a big deal. As is the optional 10-speed automatic transmission. These are great upgrades to a car already offering great value. You also get a digital gauge cluster, suspension upgrades, styling upgrades, etc. The 2018 Ford Mustang is a winner.

    A Lamborghini Huracan is a vastly superior vehicle to an old Nissan GTR. It looks better, it has more technology, it sounds better, it is far more exclusive, it has the bigger engine, better transmission, you name it. That does not mean it is faster than a modified GTR. You can make anything fast. Anything. Especially GTR's which are well known for their aftermarket prowess. This Huracan owner bit off more than he could chew running his mouth with a stock car. He comes off like a tool saying he doesn't do the 'tuning thing'. Well, ignorance is bliss. The R32 makes 800 awhp. This was not even a race. It was an ass kicking. The Lambo owner then says the R32 driver is a cheater blah blah blah. He says the 'deal is off' because the car doesn't have 500 horsepower. Well, don't have your mouth write checks your ego can't cash. The Lambo owner loses his cool and starts a pathetic fight looking like a complete fool. You can't make stuff up.

    Seriously, you see a "track" car with stickers all over it and want to believe that your "stock" car is going to mop the floor with the "track" car. I am sure there are posers out there, with stock cars and lots of stickers, but the fact that he was putting all the cash he could find on the line should have given him a hint. A fool and his money are soon parted, case in point.

    Fair enough, but what kind of moron puts $4,500 down on a roll race based solely on information provided by the other driver? The kid was scrambling to get every dollar he had in there...for most people that would raise a red flag, but not for Captain Lambo because he "saved his money and did it the right way". He got swindled but as the saying goes there's a sucker born every minute, and this one has more money than brains. I don't have any sympathy for him.

    He's got a point as much as I hate to say it, that car is obviously well north of 500, and the kid knows it. He did act like a cocky jackass, and the fighting was out of line. But I can't blame the guy for being pissed and thinking he got ripped.

    To be fair, BMW has a large plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. This plant churns out BMW SUV's which are eaten up by the US market. The SUV segment is the only one which did not take a huge nosedive for BMW in 2016 in the United States. Trump's tariff rhetoric on cars built outside the country already had an effect on US manufacturers including Ford. As stated, BMW builds plenty of cars in the USA and employs close to 70,000 Americans but BMW also plans to open a new factory in Mexico in 2019. BMW's head of sales and marketing Ian Robertson stated the following: BMW makes more cars in Spartanburg than at any other BMW plant. It is true, their commitment to the US is strong. However, BMW intends to increase their volume significantly with cheap Mini variants. That is where the Mexican plant comes into the picture. Trump's response to BMW? BMW does not plan to make any changes at this time to its Mexican plant and other German manufacturers are continuing on with business as usual. It is important to note that the US is the largest car market for the Germans. BMW, Porsche, Audi, Mercedes, and others will not achieve their stated sales goals without it. We will have to see who gives in first.

    The Americans have already improved to such a degree I don't think they need tariffs to help them. They need to continue doing what they are doing which is offering better cars for the money.

    This is what I meant. For US sales, the 3 series and X series represent the large percentage ( about 50% US sales). If they were to be taxed 35% it would kill sales. So to stop that from happening they would have to try to mitigate the issue now by creating jobs / expanding SC plant.
