F Series N55 1/4 Mile Database / Repository

EDIT: Database/Ranking started! Please comment with your times if you can so I can continue to add to it



Hey folks, did a little searching and saw a thread like this for the N2x platform, but none for the N55 and thought it'd be fun and informative to start one for the N55. I remember researching upgrade paths when I first got the car and being frustrated that there was very little info regarding 1/4 mile times.

If anyone who's run the 1/4 mile would chip in with their car, times, mods, etc. it would be tremendously appreciated! If we get enough I'll gladly rank them and put them into a spreadsheet. Videos and timeslip pics are encouraged! If you don't know the DA, altitude, or temp it's okay, but I found mine using https://airdensityonline.com/ and hitting the "historical" button under the info and finding the date I went to the track.

I'll start (open to suggestions on format/info):

Car: 2015 335i xDrive 8AT EWG
Mods: VRSF Catless DP, Chargepipe, 5" intercooler, GFB DV+, Pipercross Filter, BM3
Tires: 235/40/19 265/35/19 Continental ExtremeContact Sport Max Performance Summer Tires
Track: Route 66 in Joliet, IL
DA: 190 ft
Ambient Temp: 51 Fahrenheit
Altitude: 650 ft

Best time: 12.14 @ 111 MPH, CaryTheLabelGuy Custom E30 Tune



Second best: 12.29 @ 111 MPH OTS BM3 Stage 2 E30 Map

Bump! Spent an embarrassing amount of time putting a spreadsheet together. It's incredibly difficult to find a lot of this information floating around, and a lot of it's outdated. If anyone wants to help or chime in with their own times, it would be tremendously appreciated!

I'll continue to update the sheet as information is gathered.

Love the idea, once I get to the track I will add mine. Looking forward to seeing this grow.

I totally missed it! Super bummed. For some reason I'd had it in my head that it was late May. My buddy went though and won the 11.5 class in his S4, so that's cool. I'll definitely be there come October!

12.445 @ 111.25



Car: 2014 435i RWD 8AT EWG

Mods: BM3 stage 2 93oct tune, VRSF Catless DP, eBay Chargepipe, Amazon intercooler
Tires: 235/35R20 255/30R20 Michelin Pilot PS4
Track: HRP in Baytown, TX
Ambient Temp: 66F
Density Altitude: 588 ft



Going back tomorrow to hopefully get a better time. Changed rear tires to Michelin Pilot SS 265/30R20, OTS E30 tune, & BM3 transmission flash. I currently don't feel like these current tires grip as much as the previous tires. Zero wheel spin at the track with the PS4. Hopefully I can get an accurate weight on this car.

I currently don't feel like these current tires grip as much as the previous tires. Zero wheel spin at the track with the PS4. Hopefully I can get an accurate weight on this car.

I'll make this quick comparison with BM3 OTS tunes since I don't have the time to look up all the data at the moment.

Stg2 93 -- 12.4@111 (Michelin Pilot S4 255/30/20 -- zero wheel spin launching as hard as possible)


Stg2 E30 -- 12.3@114 (Michelin Pilot SS 265/30/20 -- some wheel spin)


Stg2+ E30 -- 12.0@116 (Michelin Pilot S4 265/30/20 -- zero wheel spin)
**added necessary fueling mods


I will add that raceweight is 3800lbs and I'm RWD. One note is that on the Stg2+ I tried the left lane and spun really bad launching as hard as possible, so i jumped over to the right lane and was about to get traction with easing into the throttle the first 15ft or so. I did not get an opportunity to launch at full throttle. Since I do not have the time slips on hand I will come back with weather conditions. I do believe my intercooler (on the smaller side) along with not having the M sport front bumper with the larger opening is hindering performance as my IATs do rise more than what I would like and timing is pulled.

Pretty sure i was having the same issues with the sport line bumper. IATs seem 10x better after changing it out.

Unfortunately, i had a very disappointing first day at the strip. Sucks because the weather was great. Got two runs in and spun the entire first 60 ft or so on both. Also, didn't preload on either run... launched at 600 rpm from a dead stop lol.

Good to hear, I'm just waiting to get have mine painted.



Is your meth turned on? If so, that could be hurting you since you're not tuned for it.

Didnt think about that. It is turned on and spraying at the recommended intervals by my tuner. But it was still added after the custom tune was done. I have a log for the second run going to take a look at it.

The turbo is definitely loosing steam once i hit the 1/8.

As mentioned in the other thread, you need tires if you want to imrove 1/4 mile times. I can launch (without LC) with 255/35/19 PS4S and have little to no spin on just normal surface streets. MHD stage 2+ E20, IC+CP+DP+TIC+MST inlet+CTS intake, completely stock Msport suspension. I don't have a LSD, either. AS 3+ are great all season tires but they arent going to hold power launching from a dig in RWD, and a prepped surface doesnt really help with A/S tires.

If the weather permitted, i would have still had MPS4S's on and maybe turned out a slightly better time. I take it your thinking even without being tuned for wmi, the tires had more to do with the time then any other factor. Not going back with A/S 3+'s on the rear lol

Funny enough, the second run was against an e90 335 who also had A/S 3+ on all fours. I was wondering why he just stood at the tree when it was time to boogie. He most definitely was easing into it.

Edit: Preloading would have made it much worse. Phyrexia ran a 12.2 on the same tires so something else is wrong

Same here. Trying to beat that time. What’s your setup?
