Wow sounds like it's a beast with insane power! What company did you go with for the flash tune?

I was interested in this model (M8 convertible) until I found out they will discontinue series in '24. What kind of updates/improvements etc. can you expect if they'll quit making the car in 4 years? BMW is just going to go thru the motions until it's killed off.

New M3/M4 will do it in 3 seconds and will be way more practical, plus ///MxDrive. That's the category that a C8 stingray should be compared to. Not a M850i

Sure it will
Mine M5 on winter tires did 3.05 1ft rollout 2.85
Most of us got into 2.8 and 1ft rollout 2.55
That is damn fast.

0-60, 1/8, 1/4, 60-130

EDIT: with a 1ft rollout that time is 3.2x

EDIT AGAIN: my sillyass just seen there is a 0-60(1ft) on the bottom. 3.24 0-60 to be exact with rollout, faster than what Car and Driver did
What app is this ?
It's called a dragy. It's free in the App Store, you can download it and check logs of any types of cars from 0-60 times to 1/4, 1/2, 60-130, 1/8 and it even will give you a 60 ft time if you do a run to the 1/8th! They recently added the 0-60 (1ft) rollout which was the only thing missing from that and VBOX. If you're planning on buying it's $150 USD and I got mine off amazon! Comes with a charger and 2 magnetic tabs to hold it

I'm sure that doesn't affect the time. Maybe it's the placement of the dragy and location of the run? Dragy was low on my seat leveled with a notebook (hence the low satellite). The slope is perfect but there's trees surrounding one side of me and nothing on the other side. I took the car out 2 days ago in the same spot which were also invalid passes but the times ranged from 3.51 best - 3.69 worst (which also seem like normal numbers) So I'm 99% sure that time wasn't a fluke. I tried to get more passes in yesterday but my dragy was dead and I didn't even know until after I left

People with dragy, where do you guys place yours and how do you get it to stick if you put it somewhere near the dash? Pictures would also be appreciated if can
