it is the heaviest of the E46 model line, it is strapped with awd and likely an automatic

the OP taking off the AC belt will LIKELY NOT be noticeable

very stupid to do this.. 1st, it doesn't give you any extra performance, 2nd, you should cycle your AC once in a while in the winter as well to maintain proper functionality.

I bet it would have an equally unnoticeable difference on any other car.

Unless you have a supercharger on it, your Dinan 3 is going to get pwned by a supercharged ZHP. So I suggest you quit while you're ahead and come up with more hiliarous methods of getting more power out of your engine.

inB4 $400 Dinan AC belt removal kit to extract an extra 0.5HP (though they will claim 5-7hp) from an E46 M54.
