    The D should be damn good this year, if not i'd start to wonder if there's is a schematic or coaching issue. 8 of the projected starters are former 1st round picks, obviously that's not the end all be all but it says a lot. If we're talking pure talent, this gives the 03 team a serious run for its' money (and that defense was stout as hell). I wonder about passrush and depth at linebacker, but the front line talent on day 1 is as good as any team in the league IMO. Jamie Collins could be an all-pro type player, watch out for him to become a national name this year. RE: Gronk, i've always found it interesting how people alter their opinions with access to results. He missed 0 practices and 0 games his first 2 seasons in the league. Since then he's essentially had a run of awful luck, but "injury prone" to me is just incorrect. It's splitting hair I guess because the bottom line is he was not on the field, but the implication that he is somehow fragile or prone to injury is not based in fact and ignores half of his career to this point. With all that said, no Gronk, no superbowl. He completely alters what they can do on offense. Such a dominant player in every facet of offensive football. So they need him when it counts, which is not in September.

    You can say PM me for further details if you want to verify legitimacy rather than. You could also provide quality content rather than post whore for example to build rep. Regardless, you probably should go sell your cable elsewhere.

    Well, since I'm finding out there are more than one site that deals with BMWs, and people are skeptical about dealing with someone who appears to have zero posts and no reputation, what's a person suppose to do? I could have been a post whore just to get the points, but I'm trying to be a nice guy and offer this cable up sooner rather than later and avoid "spamming" other posts. If my response doesn't sit well with the admin team, just delete it. I can sell this cable just as easy on the other forums.

    Sorry to put a damper on the parade but the flash tuning capability of the new turbo M models is greatly overstated. A couple of days ago results were posted of a flash tuned S55 inline-6 which is the turbocharged M motor featured under the hood of the F80 M3 and F82 M4. It is true that this car was flashed but after seeing the article BimmerBoost was contacted by a tuner who wanted to set the record straight on what is actually going on. Nobody at the moment has real control of any modern ECU used in the turbo BMW's. This includes the F30 models, F10, F12/F13, F82, F80, and so on. The tricore ECU's in these cars have not been cracked. So what exactly is going on? The tuners claiming the ability to flash are all using the same trick but they are not uploading their own custom tuned software. They are essentially flashing the same files that originate internally from BMW. Some of these files are just press files. Oh, you did not know BMW uses different software on cars they let the press test? Well, namely with the F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6 they do. Why? The BMW press software will allow a higher margin for a CEL (check engine light). That means you will not see any of those nasty reviews saying the cars went into limp mode. This among other things like traction control changes or higher boost itself. Some tuners have even been using the BMW Competition Package software which is not real flash tuning. It is just uploading BMW's own file. If anyone needs proof of this ask for a custom dyno tune for your F10 M5 or F80 M3. It is not going to happen, at least not yet. Tuners can play with the bootloader but if they modify outside of certain parameters the checksum fails. If it fails, the software will not flash. All of the big boys are struggling with this believe it or not. Dimsport which is traditionally the source for a lot of automotive ECU cracks that then spread out (for $ from others) can not flash tune the Tricore ECU's. Some guys may be using this Russian software for the Tricore ECU's to read out of the files but what can they do with it once they do? The tuner that contacted BimmerBoost said to ask the tuners for proof of their ability. No tuner that has contacted BimmerBoost stating they have the ability to flash tune has demonstrated it. So how do you get a dyno graph showing gains with a flash tune? Well, you can run a car until it is hot and then flash BMW's own software that leaked out and once the car cools down showing gains with a handpicked before and after graph. BimmerBoost stands by this report that nobody has true flash tuning ability at the moment. BimmerBoost will also state that many tuners make their living simply flashing factory files from Europe over on US cars at a markup. We will not name who it is that predominantly does this but the readers here are smart enough to figure it out. The flash tuning era of the F80 M3 / F82 M4 and F10 M5 / F13 M6 can not even be stated as being in its infancy as the development is not even that far along. We will see what happens but internal sources at BMW that traditionally have helped can not. You would not either if it meant losing your job.

    I gave you rep to PM. You come here and your only posts are regarding trying to sell something and then you tell people to other websites? Well, that is classless.

    Finally some solid testing data for the Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4. This data panel comes to us from German publication Auto Motor Und Sport. They managed to hit 0-100 km/h (62 miles per hour) in 3.1 seconds. The 400 meter sprint which is just slightly shorter than 1320 feet in a 1/4 mile comes in at 10.8 seconds at 132.352 miles per hour. Very good figures from the 3406 pound Huracan. A great curb weight considering the all wheel drive system 610 horsepower 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10. Keep in mind this weight is 6 kilograms lighter than the previous generation Gallardo LP 560-4. Full data panel below:

    The upcoming entry level Jaguar XE sedan has a lot of people excited and for good reason. The aluminum architecture and F-Type inspired suspension mean the platform should be lightweight and offer sharp handling. The last thing in the world anyone would worry about is the interior or exterior styling which are usually Jaguar strong points. This picture of the production front end just does not excite. Certainly not in the way that the teaser photos of the car did. Take a look at this production photo Jaguar posted: And now the early front end teaser: The teaser photo is obviously touched up but the front end looks much more aggressive in that photo. We will need to see more pictures of the production car before we can reach a definitive conclusion.
