I'm feeling a spam link is gonna show up in a few days.

Congrats on your two-year-old car, MassiveG.

I bet someone knows a really good link for some car quotes... you know, maybe someone that resurrects dead threads and talks like ChatGPT?

I am a car guy for sure. Love the stinger.

An acquaintance of mine has a stinger. He flashed it with a performance tune. Bumps it from 370 to 400 hp and 370 ft/lbs to 440!!!!!!!!!!!!!

just for a software flash. Supporting mods you can get even more.

The stinger is faster than mine even stock but that thing RIPS with the flash tune.

I wish I could get my car tuned for no other reason than to disable the "cold start" (the process that warms the cats up and pisses off the neighbors), but right now, there is only one person in the world that can crack the ECU's. You have to send them to Switzerland for a week. They're legit, but I still have warranty in effect, too.

I love my stinger. Luckily I got one of the last batch made as they discontinued it for 2024 and beyond.
I only have 7 k on the clock and maybe one day will tune it, upgrade the exhaust and cold air for some serious speed. I almost bought a used 2019 GTS that was in Texas with 40 K on the clock and had about 25 k in mods including alcohol injection and tuned to 515 hp.

Nice car brother but how the hell do you get in and out? LOL. I had a 2015 BMW M6 Gran Coupe as a weekend kind of toy. I sold in in 2020 and bought my daughter her car but it was funny how hard it was for me to get out of that damn thing. I really want a corvette but I looked at one and its just too low and I am too damn big... Congrats bro.

Really, Switzerland! I wonder if he did that? Possible, he has the stinger and a pickup so he can be without for a week. I had no idea. I tuned my ecoboost long before it was out of warranty. I have a 87 tune, 93 and a E30 tune. that puts me at 265 hp and 350 ft lbs torque out of a little 2.0. It is out of warranty now and I thought about big turbo but i don;t care. i am putting my $$$ in the suspension. that is where I have fun. corners. If I wanna go fast i jump on my liter bike and rip

the stinger is a beast stock. with that tune another animal. With supporting mods!!!!! They are crazy quick. congrats again man.

Well I guess I probably should have said mine isn't a Stinger. It's an M5. I bought it during my second mid-life crisis when I made a lot more money. Now it's a fucking financial anchor, but I still love it.

The next M5's seven-year cycle begins next month, with the adoption of electrification. I absolutely refused to have any of that shit in an M car so picked up one of the last pure ICE M5's on 2/8/23 in Spartanburg, SC. Leaks show the next M5 is going to be a bit of a disappointment, so I'm hoping that may create some demand so I can unload mine. I'll still have to take a loan to cover the gap, but hopefully I can make that gap more narrow.

I want another sports car toy. I am trying to decide now if I want another Benz like a GT63 or if I am gonna get a GT500. I looked at the Camaro ZLI with the track pack but I like the GT500 better.

Have you looked to see if Bimmercode can disable that "feature" for you? I turned off some things with our X5M and X3M40 that were annoying. There are no warranty issues yet only crappy thing is you have to recode after every software update.
