isnt it true that the 330 engine is actually a detuned US SPEC E36 M3 engine? Thats wut my sales told me. Then again, they can be liars.

that is BS one is not a detuned version of the other...they have many many differences...and also a difference in displacement. One being a 3.2 litre engine and the other a 3.0 litre engine...

Well, they are essentially the same "block". just diff specs.

On that note, it would be true.
