Bluebird Sylphy

191-193Nm @ 4400rpm

vs

316i
220Nm @ 1350rpm


Look at those figures closely. Max torque at 1350 RPM............ vs 4400 RPM.
Also, the 316 outputs is max HP at a lower RPM as well. That sylphy never gonna pull like the 316.

Why these engines being compared like they in the same class anyway?

Without knowing how that power is being put to the ground. .. comparing engine specs is only part off the story.
I am speaking mainly about the transmission.

Rear wheel drive will win.

All cars raise a little off the front wheels when taking off, sylphy will lose traction while 316 will gain more traction.

Lol.... Should of known better
Not sure about the transmission in the bmw but with a cvt being able to keep the engine in the power and letting the trans sort it out. ...I am thinking it might be closer than engine numbers would lead you to believe.

While rwd vehicles are fun. ... fwd cars are better able to recover from an unplanned slide :smile:

I personally believe bmw quotes whp as opposed to bhp in their figures. Also if the bmw has the smancy new 8 speed tranny it will be sublimely fast for that engine

Sylphy more likely to be stolen before any comparison can be made between the two :P

What I meant is they wouldn't care. Driving a BMW why care what a sylphy can or can't do? Most won't think anything of it passing them by.

I'd prefer to drive a slow BMW than a fast sylphy
And lets be real there is no such thing as a fast sylphy

Good night guys,

Anyone of you all with the 2012 Jetta having A/C issues?

Mine just cut off this morning, not blowing any air or nothing, but the lights are on..switched off and on again and nothing..

But it sounds like the compressor is coming on but no airflow..

Any ideas?

I could be wrong, but it seems as if there are not as many Jettas being sold. I've hardly seen any newly registered ones, compared to a year ago.

Wait.. BA NOW gonna officially open the showroom?
I feel they bussing...

Alot of used jetta's on the market now, from pcu's to pde's. Hard to consider a new Jetta when you can get a 1-3 year old one with low mileage with almost 100k of the price.

I think they were waiting until they got the amarok in stock to properly open the place.
Starting to see them on the road now see 3 new ones already.

hadda try ah ting boy bunny!
