Default M235i vs IS-F

Anybody see this yet? My buddy who is a BMW fan sent me this and now everybody on the M235 board are ripping on the IS-F. I think this would totally be a different outcome if it wasn't in such thin air, but I do give the M235 some credit. Does look to be a quick car.

I don't know why they even drag race if altitude is a factor. It does make me miss my Supra TT though...lol

Those guys in the video are annoying. I've watched a few of their videos and its nothing to compare with. Altitude really does make a difference and turbo cars don't take as much of a hit in higher altitudes compared to NA engines.

I just read page 2... This car isn't for everyone. I bet most of the guys on that forum have never been in an ISF, let alone driven one. Bad brakes? Bad transmission? What a joke lol

I've never seen anything close to the ignorant/dismissive/abusive bashing by bimmer fanboys. It's almost a hate crime

Skip to 2:13 for the actual "race." Pretty sure both us and the M235 crowd can at least agree the guys that make these videos are giant douches.

Those 2 guys are idiots, very annoying.

High altitude hurt the ISF, but 235i is very impressive. BMW greatly underrated the hp/tq figures on its cars.
M2 will be incredible.

Cant wait to see M4 vs RCF....although i think result may be similar.
