played tag w/ an E46 330Ci

This is probably a shot in the dark...

I played tag all the way from Katella on the 57S to Jeffery on the 5S with a black E46 330Ci tonight....

Anybody on this forum? hehe...it was pretty fun...i think i did pretty well with my 190E, too bad I wasn't in my SLK so I could've entertained him while driving in a straight-line...

I remember you from the 190 revolution forum. I met you at a get together @ Hard Rock NB. You were one of the nicer guys in that group. I sold my Benz to get my new E46...

no chance, the SLK230 cant keep up with a 330Ci. Slk is a supercharged 180HP car that weighs more than the 225hp 330Ci. And we all know that nothing beats natural Aspiration

sorry, man...but i'm afraid you are incorrect...

not trying to start a MB vs. BMW conflict here...but here is the technical data from BMWUSA.com

330Ci

Weight
Unladen 3285 (3362) lbs
Figures in ( ) apply to vehicles with automatic transmission.

technical data from MBUSA.com

Curb weight 3,033 lb/1,375 kg (automatic)

So,

the SLK230 is, indeed, lighter...

FYI: SLK stands for Sports Leicht Kompact (Sports Light Compact)...

But the, 330Ci is, no doubt, faster than the SLK230 Kompressor.
