What's faster stock 135i or stock e46 m3

Hey so I've been doing some research trying to find out what would be faster on the free a stock e46 m3 6 speed or a stock 135i 6 speed as well? Also this past weekend I raced another stock e46 m3 which was smg with exhaust and the driver was a good driver I pulled on him by a car and I am stock as well. Thanks

Stock vs stock, an M3 should be faster. 135i is very easy to get power out of though... so anyone who's interested in racing probably would chip it.

Go for a longer race than a simple quarter mile drag. The turbocharged engine in the 135i makes substantially more torque at low revs (and at peak) than the M3, meaning that it will launch harder initially, so you need enough space and speed to let the M3 really stretch its legs. The naught to 60 and quarter mile times for the 2 cars are quite close.

looks like you'll do just fine from a roll...
first part of the vid is from naught and M3, although close, doesnt have time to catch up
in the second part of the vid from the roll M3 easily takes 135i, although by the end it looked as though 135 might be able to pull it off if the runway was any longer.



and some interesting highway pulls

Don't like it? Don't look at it. I don't understand why you care so much if you're not interested.
