Impressive time, considering the conditions... Seems to be quite easy Said to be a bone stock car with Michelin Supersport tires, 6-speed manual.

That track is rather slippery when wet, and you can tell that the driver is holding back in all the scary places. The time will be significantly better in the dry.

You are comparing apples and oranges now. The M135i only ran bridge to gantry, not a complete lap.

Now I've seen that it completed the North Loop of Nurburgring...
Still curious to see the time for the entire lap, completed by some pro drivers

I think that will also be around 8 minutes. The M3 CSL did it in 7:50 on Sport Cup tires with 360 hp.

I thought the M5 did it in 7:55

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Add 20-25 sec. to BTG time and you have a full lap. Like on other tracks (check fastest laps site, narrow it down for M135i for Hockenheim Short etc.), it will be significantly faster than an E82 135i but a bit slower than a E92 M3 or E82 1M, as expected.

That was a good effort for the conditions,I think he could take another 10 seconds off that if it was dry

I think he could take more. With a very good driver, I am guessing a complete lap in 8:00 minutes, plus/minus 5 seconds.

Particularly impressive to see how stable the car is with that BTG, just looks like a nice and easy drive!

BMW PR representative Dave Buchko neither confirmed or denied the time, stating that it, is not an official time, so Im afraid Im not in a position to provide confirmation.

Not fond of the way this thing looks but, with an LSD, BMW Perf suspension, proper tires and a tune, this thing could be a monster.

If the rumored M2 coupe exists and, actually is a turbo 4, I doubt this package would make it to American shores.

sorry, but i just have hard time believing this is a stock car.. My m3 has a lot more body roll than this. This guy does have a lot of balls to push it like that in damp weather, I've seen way too many accidents to risk my baby like that. I have 600hp M3, with NT01's, and I turn around 8 flat, and trust me, it looks a lot more dramatic than this (stock EDC).
