    You take your SUV to the drag strip!

    I had a chance to take my X3 M40i to the track with the MP Stage 2 tune installed to see what I can do.

    Specs.
    MP Stage 2 Tune
    96 Octane (E30)
    4475 race weight

    THAT'S IT... no modifications anywhere else - stock intake, stock exhaust, stock wheel, stock tires (All season), etc.

    This is literally a Tune Only run and nothing else.

    One mistake I made was arriving with my tank 7/8 full ... whoops

    So how did I do?

    12.380 @ 110.02 was my best time
    111.20 was my best MPH
    0-60 ~ 4.11 (per my Dragy)

    Some videos of the X3 beating up on different cars -









    Big thanks to ALEX at @[MissionPerformance](contact:248300) for creating an amazing tune (28+mpg on my way home too).

    Overall pretty impressed with a 6 cylinder turbo SUV that can surprise the heck out of a couple people!

    I think you would get wrecked by any SRT, Audi, or Porsche suv. Some guy posted his stock maccan going 11’s.

    Cool I guess?


    But I hate SUV’s and blame them for the death of performance cars and manuals so don’t mind me lol
    Glad you had fun.

    Guess I'm easy to please because that's pretty damn awesome! How do you like this over the Edge Sport? It's obviously faster, but your Edge wasn't too far behind.

    Impressive times for sure. I was at a BMW driver day event and they had teh X3 M40i setup on the autocross course. I was really impressed with the X3 and how well it could be tossed around.

    As someone else said, you'd have a stock SRT Jeep covered.

    SRT8 Jeep and Durango I would beat both easily. Audi SQ5 is a second behind. Unless it's a Macan Turbo or Cheyenne Turbo all other models are going to be in my rears... but for the $$ I would expect them to be.

    BMW is better 100% in every single aspect except auto start through the remote... legit only complaint. Edge was about 1/2 slower which was a couple cars easy when going through the 1/4.

    I almost bought the m40i when looking for a new ride for the wife, The bmw really surprised me performance wise. I ended up with a 2018 Jaguar F-pace S because we didn’t see any around. I think I need to take it to the track now

    From google:

    18 edge sport base price is 40k.

    18 x3 m40i base price is 55k.

    It may be better, its not 15k better and bmw prices go up quick

    Jesus. That is an expensive mini SUV. I thought the Edge Sport was expensive.
