Yap! right, I just wonder why they did compare very current two cars(335i and 135i) with 8 year-old senior car(M3).

And for the 0-60, I could not understand how they got 5.4 sec.
My car is 2006 E46 M3 comp pack. I did not exactly measure my car but the mechanic measured and mensioned 4.5 sec to 4.6 sec.

Anyway, I would agree if they used 2006 E46 M3

My Ride: E46 M3
Is it possible the E46 M3 ran such a slow time because of high heat? I read the article too and that was the only excuse I can think of. I think I remember saying that all the times were pretty high with the n/a car suffering the most.

The 0-100km time they got for the m3 seems about right for an average driver.

My Ride: 135i
my dealer let me drive a 135i they're not supposed to let you unless your 21 or something like that but the guy was cool and let me (I'm 17 )
and it was a blast! I've never driven anything quite like it but I didnt drive very aggressively so I didnt get to see what it could really do...

335i FTW!!
But on the track the m3 took it home.

30k for an 2002 m3!!! that really expensive. Imagine a 335ci with simple bolt ons nad boost controllet!! that would be at least 70 hp
