Nürburgring times and what Mods

Post by Finfast » Mon Aug 13, 2018 5:20 pm

Hi I recently bought a e82 135i and I love it but I’m looking to modify it so that it becomes a capable tool for the Nürburgring, what times are people doing in these cars and what coilovers would you use? Moton, intrax or something else?

Thanks

8.24 but was first visit, mods and advice listed here:

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=98187&p=1266972&hi ... r#p1266972

TBH the chassis needs the work, Ive got M3 arms, diff and ARB's, Meister GT1 coilovers and serious brake pads, it would arguably break 8 with just that.

Really impressive lap that mate

I went last month and did a 9.22 in a bone stock 130i on eco tyres. I'm not as quick as you but I think with my M3 LCAs fitted an NS2Rs on a sub-9 is within reach.

P.S. I recognise your username - did I see your car at Brands at a 750MC meeting?

Thanks mate!

9:22 is a highly respectable time in a completely stock car, tyres make such a huge difference, Sub 9 is 100% in reach with those mods.

I’ve been going to ring a few years now so a lot of my time is in track knowledge I guess. I’ve since fitted eibach pro springs and I plan to fit m3 arms eventually. So I’d like to see my time drop into 8:20s maybe?

Yeah I was at Brands 750MC meeting earlier in the year, a friend races in club enduro and roadsports so I was spannering for him. I’m usually at most MSV TDT and TDC meets.

8.20s would be insane! I know there's a video of an 8.00 on Youtube by a guy called Alex Hardt but the car looks highly modded and the guy obviously does a ton of a laps there.

Ah nice, I did Roadsports last year (sharing the E36 with Sam, if you know him). I'm about to start Locosts with the club so maybe see you around.

Yeah I’m subscribed to alex on YouTube, he’s a local lad, a seriously talented driver and knows the place like the back of his hand!

Ah cool, tbh I spend more time in the msv stuff than 750mc so I don’t know a lot of the 750 paddock. Sounds good, I’ll keep an eye out for you for sure!

my target for 2019 is 8:40 BTG.

this is in a bone stock E36 316i compact ( 110bhp) . Have a German registered car with no engine mods bar a good service, 16 inch wheels with AD08's Some cheap TUv ready Coilovers from eBay,set of endless pads and a set of bucket seats and stripped of weight.

decided we have more fun in low powered cars refining the track and learning it than we do in high powered cars, MX5's re o much fun. Also not prepared to take the risk of no insurance anymore.
Some 2.0 Civic thing

Sorry no. I figured plentry of others would find their way onto youtube so didn't bother.

We had the advantage of being 2nd on track. Out after the GT3RS.

8:37 for me in the 130i. I think experience is the key. Was struggling to get below high 8’s for a couple of trips, then did 15 laps in a day this year taking my all time lap tally to 34. It was that day that the times dropped just by being out there and repeating / learning. I can go quicker but it’ll be local knowledge / time spent that’ll do it, not mods to the car.

Given what those 15 weekend laps cost me in Euros, I’m convinced a trackday is much better value than tourist driving, and without all the insurance risk.

E87 '05 130i; BMWP Brakes, intake, & exhaust. birds arb's, quaife, meister R coilovers, m3 lca, goodridge lines, oz Ultraleggera and 595 RSR's.
