This article is funny BTW where the 305hp TL is 0.5sec slower than an N52 328i (of course with 230hp) in 0-60. 75hp "advantage" and its slower.

Actually the E36 M3 and E90 328i are very close in terms of straight line acceleration. Here is some food for thought:





Won't let me post image for E90 328i so here is the link:

0-60 5.9
0-100 16.1
0-120 24.9
1/4 mile 14.6 @ 96 MPH
