Bmw M3 0-60

It may bear the M3 name, but compared to the E30 M3, the E36 is an almost entirely different car. For starters, BMW dropped the lighter four cylinder engine in favor of a three liter straight six engine that pumps out 240 horsepower. It packed on a few pounds, too nearly 800 of them. But don’t go thinking for a second that the E36 M3 went the way of Val Kilmer; it reaches 60 mph in 5.6 seconds, which is quicker than the old M3 by nearly a full second. Gone is the ethos of a lightweight road racer; the M3 is a refined, powerful sports saloon you can even get it with an automatic transmission. If the current prices for E63 M3s are any indication, it’s perhaps the least desirable M3 out there (which is like saying Christie Turlington is the least desirable supermodel) but we consider it underappreciated. If you can find one that hasn’t been neglected, poorly modified or hooned to death, a used E36 M3 is a veritable performance bargain, and is only likely to go up in price.

In a continuation of earlier efforts to shed weight from its performance-orientated M division models, BMW has provided both the M3 sedan and M4 coupe with a carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) roof panel. The hood and front panels on each car are fashioned from aluminum. According to official figures, the M3 has dropped 187 pounds over its four-door predecessor at 3,351 pounds, while the M4 is 183 pounds lighter than the old M3 Coupe at 3,300 pounds.
2014-BMW-M4-sedan-photo-gallery%2C-specs-and-price.jpg
BMW says the new M3 and M4 will run the standing kilometer -- now an essential figure in performance claims among Germany's performance car elite -- in 22.2 seconds. As with all BMW M-division models, top speed is limited to 155 mph. An optional M Driver's Package raises it to 174 mph.

O yeah the M3 is an excellent car, if i had tha money i would definetly get one, but i am a lil bit curious as too where they got hat 4147lbs of weight from, i have herd 3725 US spec with a full tank of gas ans liquids and all the optoins, so where does that extra 400lbs come from??
BMW Z8
Just been on BMW website. The coupe weighs in at 1655KG but that's EU spec (or something) which includes a 75KG driver. So the actual weight of the car is 1580KG. The convertible, thanks to a steel folding roof rather than carbon fiber + all the other gubbins comes out at 1885KG on the same comparison chart. So in reality, the convertible 'only' weighs 1805KG. Still heavy though - kinda puts me off. I think it's more about how light the coupe is though, rather than the convertible being especially heavy. It's still lighter than a CLK63 cab and that has a fabric roof!
Photo Of BMW M3 Cabrio E93
yeah the coupe has pulled a 9.2 i read it somewhere either in an article or on the internet. i wouldn't be surprised if the cabrio managed a 9.7 either, its got the power, and sure the weight is a bit high, but 9.7 is a reasonable 0-100 time for that car. how much does the dkg or dct put on the m3? i'm not sure what its called but its the f1 transmission. thanks for any helpful answers :)
Photo Of BMW M3 Cabrio E93
i don't see what the big fuss is about, the m3 is a great car, whether or not its a convertible. 10.6 or 10.7 sec 0-100 is very very good for a car that weighs in at 4000+ lbs. the carrera 4s and m3 are two very different cars. one is built for fast acceleration, 0-60, 0-100,1/4 mile while the other (m3) is a quick sprinter, but more of an autobahn cruiser. so whoever the anonymous douchebag talkin bout how gay an m3 convertible is, shut the fuck up and keep your damn comments to yourself.

2016- BMW- M3 1
Under the hood of the M3 is a 3.0L inline 6-cylinder powerplant capable of churning out 425 hp and 406 pounds of torque. Revving of the engine is expected to be as high as 7,600 rpm. There will be two available transmissions: an optional 7-speed automated transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters and a standard 6-speed manual with automated rev-matching. With the former transmission system whilst utilizing the integrated launch control feature, the new 2016 BMW M3 will be able to deliver a 0-60 mph dash in a record 3.9 seconds. On the other hand, the 6-speed will achieve the same spring in 4.1 seconds.
2016 BMW M3
Another feature provided as standard is the automatic engine stop-start function. No details have been published by EPA pertaining the fuel consumption, however, going by last year model, the 2016 BMW M3 should be expected to improve slightly on the 17/26/20 mpg in the city/highway/combined figures of the previous model. The automobile giant is conscious of the fact that at such top speeds, although they have not released those for 2016 M3, are crucial for safety of its driver and passengers. Therefore, the M3 will come standard with antilock brakes, front side airbags, traction and stability control, front knee protection airbags and side curtain airbags. Optional safety features include front and rear parking sensors, rearview and top-down cameras, blind-spot monitoring, frontal collision warning, lane-departure warning, and automatic braking for frontal collision mitigation. High-performance carbon-ceramic brake discs are also optionally provided.

2016 BMW M3  Release Date, MSRP, Colors, Price - Very few vehicles carry as much weight among its fans as the BMW M3. For a couple of decades now, the model has been able to set the benchmark for seamless combination of handling and acceleration of a sports car with the comfort and room of an entry-level luxury sedan.

As impressive as the upcoming 2016 BMW M3 might sound, it is set to face some stiff rivalry, nonetheless. Key in the competition is the Mercedes-AMG C63 sedan, which sports a turbocharged V8 engine capable of yielding 503 hp. Alternatively, another potential rival is the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V. Despite the fierceness in the market, the new 2016 BMW M3 will emerge victorious on many fronts due to its striking balance in its offerings.
2016 BMW M3 Trunk
For 2016, the vehicle will is based on the latest-generation 3 Series just like in the previous model. However, you might notice that this review has referred to the M3 as a 4-door sedan. Fret not, as there is an available two-door coupe and convertible version. The vehicles have simply been renamed M4 and have been covered in a separate review on our site. Irrespective of the body style, these M cars will certainly have a way to make their enthusiasts very content.

Much of the joy that comes from being an M3 fan, like I am, lies under the hood, where an agile turbocharged inline-6 is able to crank out 425 hp. More details will follow in the Engine Specs section below.

RADIUM Fuel Rail For E46 BMW M3
This fuel rail is compatible with all BMW models equipped with the S54 engine: 2001-2006 BMW M3 2001-2002 BMW Z3 M Coupe 2006-2008 BMW Z4 M Coupe
RADIUM Fuel Rail For E46 BMW M3
Adapter Fittings  - Adapter fittings are available for flexibility when plumbing a custom high flow fuel system.  The adapters are available in -6AN, -8AN, and -10AN. This is intended to be used when building a high horsepower fuel system using aftermarket pumps, hose, and fittings. This option includes two adapters but  does not  include a feed hose. Use the two fittings as an alternative to the factory dead end system. If your system will be plumbed as a dead end like the BMW rail, only one of these fittings will be used and the included plug (or optional fuel pressure gauge) will be used for the other end of the rail. Professional installation is suggested when building a high flow fuel system.
RADIUM Fuel Rail For E46 BMW M3
Stock Configuration  - This configuration includes all the parts required to mount the fuel rail. Also, a 41" long high quality -6AN PTFE (Teflon) replacement fuel feed hose is included which connects to the OEM BMW fuel pressure regulator as shown below. This hose is also E85 compatible. A plug is included (in all configurations) for the opposite fuel rail end. This is an excellent drop-in upgrade for a stock or slightly modified fuel system.

2016-BMW-M3
But there are some added technological updates and gadgets for the inside that makes it quite useful. The latest-generation Navigation system Professional with LTE, for instance, is a great admired addition and is certainly something the fans will be the most excited about when using this car. This is perhaps the fastest mobile standard currently available that the car gets but it is offered as optional in the M3, so be sure to include it when purchasing this car. There are some added upgrades that will be given as well but they will make its way into the car shortly before the release. This time the BMW decided to keep us in the dark about certain updates but we are hoping they get to be some good ones as the car is going to need them.
2016 BMW M3
Under the hood of the 2016 model of the BMW M3 is the same engine as before. You will see the use of the same 3.0-liter inline-six engine that has already powered the car which produces 425 horsepower between 5,500 and 7,300 rpm, and 406 pound-feet of torque from 1,850 rpm to 5,500 rpm. As before a standard transmission is the six-speed manual transmission, but a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is offered as optional. Using the manual transmission the car can hit the 60 mph mark in 4.1 seconds, while with the DCT it lowers the 0-60 mph to 3.9 seconds. The top speeds also remains 155 mph. The fuel economy is not a strong point for this vehicle as you are looking at numbers which say 17 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with the manual gearbox and 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with the DCT one.
2016 BMW M3 Front
Yes some will regard the exterior update of the new BMW M3 as somewhat disappointing. Perhaps the lack of ideas or the fact that they thought that they already had a good design kept them of adding too much to the car has stopped them to develop it a bit too further. But the truth of the matter is that the car does not feature a significant update and looks pretty much the same as before. The hype around the car was actually just a hype which enabled the people to get interested into the car as much as they could while leaving them with a vehicle which has done as much as to change the lights. The lights, both front and back, have really been exchanged and have been made to look similar to the ones in the 3 Series. They now also include the added LED technology update, but this is not what all the people were expecting for as it remains the only significant updated to the look of the car.
2016 BMW M3 Back
M3 Release Date, Price, Review, Colors - It was back in 2012 when BMW released its 6 th generation of the 3 Series vehicle, but then without any particular reason decided to leave it on the bench for a while. The car waited till 2015 in order to receive its update and to get remodeled in a big way. This was welcomed with a lot of praise by the fans so the new 2016 redesign of the M3 is something that is going to be highly appreciated as well. This time the car gets a light remodeling that gets to show the car in a modern and updated look.
2016 BMW M3 Interior
The release date has been set for this year. Expect the BMW M3 model to hit the stands this as soon as year although it is being released as the 2016 model. The price is already available and it is $64,195 base MSRP.
2016 BMW Z4
There are also some limited additions to the inside of the car as well. Although the BMW M3 vehicle has been renewed for the previous model in a great sense, the same thing did not happen for the 2016 model. The inside remains virtually the same with a few tweaks here and there and some additions that makes it look okay, but not in any way regarding this as a completely new design for the car. The newest additions are in fact the chrome highlights. You can see them on the center console, the center stack and the dashboard as well. This has been an attempt to make the car look newer and different than it actually is.
2016 BMW X5 Series - Review
But to make things a bit more interesting, BMW has added a choice between three new colors to choose from. The now available ones are Champagne Quartz Metallic, Smoked Topaz Metallic and the highly exclusive Tanzanite Blue Metallic, and with the already present Azurite Schwarz Metallic, which was also available with the previous car model. Yet we can agree that the M3 is a good looking sports sedan, despite the lack of its updates. We appreciate seeing this car on the road in the future.

To be both a convincing, high performance car and a daily driver convertible is a lot to ask of one vehicle. The skill sets of the roles are different, and like a chef's recipe, there's an art to getting the right ingredients, and the right blend of ingredients. The M3 Convertible has it. It's wildly capable, yet still manages to be passably practical.

So the little Italian red head is fresh, athletic, and pretty thin to boot! But is she smart? Alfa Romeo claims the Giulia QV will offer four distinct driving modes that will transform the character of the car with a click of a button: Dynamic, Natural, Advanced Efficient, and Racing.
Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-8856
In addition, the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV will also introduce a new electromechanical "Integrated Brake System," which serves to provide instantaneous brake response, and stability under braking. Together the QV is expected to wow us with remarkably short braking distances.
Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-10
Despite the power disadvantage, the BMW M3 also boasts a 0-60 mph acceleration of 3.9 seconds, equaling the 503 hp Alfa Romeo Giulia QV. The V8 powered C63 reaches 60 just a fraction slower at 4.0 seconds.
Alfa-Romeo-Giulia-9
Obviously, we've yet to know the handling characteristics of the Giulia QV. That said, the emphasis on weight saving, weight distribution, braking ability, and active aero all points to a sharper and thrilling driving experience, more similar to the raw BMW M3 than the grand touring feel of the powerful AMG cars. This is a blessing for driving enthusiasts that want a little variety, but it can also be a curse for Alfa Romeo. How many automakers vowed to create an M3-beating rival to only fall short on the promise?

Now, perhaps one could argue the M3's greater everyday usability justifies some of that price, or perhaps that the Corvette is just a ridiculous, unparalleled bargain. Perhaps one could also argue that the M3 will be out of production in about 15 minutes, effectively reducing this contest to one between a new Corvette and a used, perfectly reasonably priced BMW M3.

The Final Tally Of course, there's also the matter of cost. Even if you ignore the one-of-200, already-sold-out Lime Rock Park Edition that adds an obscene $10,000 to the price (for ostensibly different rims, a flat-bottomed wheel and some orange paint), an equally equipped 2013 BMW M3 with M-DCT and the Competition and Premium packages would hit the register at around $73,000.
2014 Chevy Corvette Vs. 2013 BMW M3
There is reason to praise the Corvette's cabin. The quality of materials and construction is indeed reflective of its price and performance, and with the LT3's extended leather package, it certainly looks more dramatic than the M3. However, the BMW is without question built to a higher standard. The gap between the two has been reduced monumentally, but it remains.
2014 Chevy Corvette Vs. 2013 BMW M3
The 2014 Corvette Stingray 3LT with Z51 package costs $69,375 and includes equipment the M3 doesn't offer like cooled seats, Pandora radio and a head-up display, not to mention its dual-mode performance exhaust and the magnetic suspension. If we're talking value alone, it's no contest.
2014 Chevy Corvette Vs. 2013 BMW M3
One could argue anything they'd like, but there's absolutely no denying that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the performance champion here and ultimately the better weekend plaything or extra car in the garage. That's what most people in this segment want, and the Corvette delivers in ways the M3 can't match.

The new BMW M3 sedan 2016 release date is expected during the last quarter of 2015 with the starting price of $62,000, which will be slightly higher than its predecessor.
2016 BMW M3 Front
Similar to its predecessor, the new M3 sedan will come with the same, but a fine-tuned six-speed manual transmission as standard, but it also comes with a seven-speed double-clutch transmission as an option. Through the manual transmission, it attains the speed from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds, and a mileage of 17 mpg in city and 26 mpg on the highway. On the other hand, through the double-clutch transmission it attains the same speed in 3.9 seconds, with the mileage of 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway(9.8-13.8 l/100 km). However, it gets the same top speed of 155 mph like its predecessor. The 2016 BMW 3-series have four petrol and seven diesels engines, but without M mark.

The new BMW M3 2016 comes with limited interior updates, which consist of only new chrome highlights on its dashboard, center stack, and center console and other minor twists all over the cabin. The new sedan comes with the modern Navigation system Professional among LTE as an option. It is expected that the new sedan will come with supplementary customizing options, but the manufacturer has not yet revealed those options.

The high-performance 2016 BMW M3 is equipped with the same headlamps as that of its predecessor, but with some slightly modified LED strips and double-lights that move further apart. Around its back, the taillights get innovative LED graphics. The manufacturer also introduced it with two fresh Individual exterior body colors, such as Champagne Quartz Metallic and Smoked Topaz Metallic in addition to the existing Azurite Schwarz Metallic and Tanzanite Blue Metallic body colors of the earlier model.

BMW introduced the completely redesigned sixth-generation 3 Series sedan for the 2012 model year, but it kept the M3 sedan on the shelf pending it restarted the speedy four-door 2016 BMW M3 Sedan. As it will be equipped with an extraordinarily powerful engine when compared to the earlier model, buyers will get a more agile and a faster sedan that ever before. The new M3 sedan is expected to come with a mild refresh.

The new BMW is expected to be equipped with the same engine as that of its predecessor. The engine will be a 3.0-liter I-6 engine that offers the sedan the necessary power of 425 HP between 5,500 RPM and 7,300 RPM and 406 lbs per foot of torque between 1,850 RPM and 5,500 RPM.

Keep in mind that there are a number of factors that need to be considered when looking at 0 to 60 and quarter mile data. The factors that have an effect on the 0-60 times and quarter mile carstats include, (but aren’t limited to), the amount of fuel the test car has, the engine temperature, the condition of the race track surface, the tune of the test vehicle, outside air temperature, barometric pressure and variance between the diverse group of professional test drivers (typically former race car drivers) …

When it comes to races, the BMW M3 has registered 5 wins in the Guia Race in the year 1987, 1988 and then back to back three years from 1991 to 1993. In the 24 hours Nurburgring, the BMW M3 has 5 consecutive wins from 1989 to 1993 next to its name and in the Spa 24 hours race the car has the glory of 4 wins in the years 1987, 1988, 1990 and 1992. In 1987, the BMW M3 has also won the World Rally championship

‘s performance center). Undeterred by the idea of summer tires in the rain, we head out. The water is an excellent medium on which to demonstrate how much this new 3.0-liter twin-turbo I-6 (S55 in BMW-speak) changes the driving experience. In numbers, it makes 406 lb-ft of torque at 1500 rpm — 111 lb-ft more and 3000 rpm sooner than the V-8 it supplants. In a test a month earlier, we recorded 0-60 mph acceleration of 3.8 seconds (0.4 sec faster than our 2008 long-term M3) and a quarter-mile run in 12.1 seconds at 117.8 mph (0.6 sec and 7.2 mph faster).

With 414 hp and a redline that exceeds 8 grand, the M3's V8 is a thriller that'll pin your ears back with its smooth, potent rush from 3,000 rpm to that 8,400-rpm redline. The six-speed manual's shift action is solid and precise, with less of the somewhat rubbery feel found in the previous-gen M3. With its firm resistance and progressive action, the clutch is just what we'd expect in a performance car — in hard driving it feels just right, while around town it's not so stiff you feel like you're doing (left) leg presses at the gym.

If you want a sporting car to drive every day rather than every third Sunday, performance is obviously vital, but there's far more to consider than just lap times and lateral Gs. Since the Corvette and M3 have a similar price and are both known for being more livable than a typical razor's-edge sports car, it's not unthinkable that a fat-walleted bachelor, DINK or empty nester might think to themselves, "Which one would be better as my everyday car?"

Let's be honest here, we're not going to get a 4.1s 0-60 time the vast majority of the time, if the car can break loose from a standstill 2nd gear start at half throttle, there is no way we're going to get enough traction off the line in an everyday situation to even come close, BMW'ss of 4.5/4.7 are probably what we should expect on a good run, 4.1 if everything goes absolutely perfect and your diff explodes.

I understand different conditions, drivers etc. but they(autoexpress) just tested the e92 m3 vs RS4 and they did 0-60 in 4.9 and 4.7 respectively. 335i's have been known to hit 0-60 in4.8 seconds and edmunds even said that it was a hair slower than the RS4(which is a similar outcome to this test) in their full test. I have no doubt that the M3 will be faster than the 335i (when tested together) but can the M3 be that close in performance to the 335i w/o any modifications?

For the latest Bmw zero to 60 and quarter mile stats, we have taken the time to gather the most accurate level of information possible. We consider a wide range of things when gathering our quarter mile and zero to sixty sec, including the skill level of the driver, the source of the information, and the specifics related to Bmw cars. There are numerous Bmw cars, and each make and model is different. Everything from weight to driver experience to tires can have an influence not just on mph times, but on zero to 60 times and quarter mile times as well. With that in mind, we know that getting data from the best possible source with the best possible level of accuracy is a must, and we believe in delivering the best results down to the tenths of a sec whenever possible. However, it's important to note that 0 to 60 times vary greatly, and depending on the source the information may vary. Mph and.25 mile results can vary as well, and while we've done everything we can to ensure the validity of our 0 to 60 sec speed results, we still can't totally guarantee the accuracy of the speeds Bmw vehicles may reach. These results are based on the latest information on Bmw vehicles derived from the best 0 to 60 tests available.

M3 Release Date, Price, Review, Colors - It was back in 2012 when BMW released its 6 th generation of the 3 Series vehicle, but then without any particular reason decided to leave it on the bench for a while. The car waited till 2015 in order to receive its update and to get remodeled in a big way. This was welcomed with a lot of praise by the fans so the new 2016 redesign of the M3 is something that is going to be highly appreciated as well. This time the car gets a light remodeling that gets to show the car in a modern and updated look.

BMW spared no effort in developing the latest M3’s engine, once again a straight-six after a one-generation V-8 dalliance. The M3’s new twin-turbo 3.0-liter develops 425 hp and sings up to 7,600 rpm, at which point the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic rifles to the next gear. We also appreciate that the BMW holds gears in M mode and that it shifts to the lowest possible gear when you pull and hold the left paddle.

My car is only a 318i which contains a 4 cylynder 1.8 litre engine putting out about 150 horse power. I tested it tonigt and did 0-90 km/h in 8.9 seconds... Slow right? To be fair it was raining all day and the road was slippery, to add to that I spun on some gravel on launch. So in perfect conditions your looking at 8 to 8.5 seconds when running that small of an engine which is pretty slow yeah, but the sound is incredible. Also, dose anyone else feel like around 5.5 and 6 thousand rpm tbe engine gets extremly shaky and almost unstable you could say. The car revs and shifts really well at 4.5 to 5 grand which sounds perfect too. Anyways hoped that helped. All these 6 cyclynder m3s with their 260 horse poeer have the advantage, and if any of you have one of those engines needs to sell it I'm willing to take it off your hands.

Drove the base model ATS this year at AMP in Arizona.  Absolutely blew my mind how Cadillac nailed the dynamics and ride quality.  If you haven't driven this car in a track setting, you're really missing out on how great the base chassis is.  I can only imagine that the V version really is an M3 fighter with the extra power.  Surely the Pilot super sports in a wider spec will provide the extra grip needed in the corners to hang with the Bimmer.

Just been on BMW website. The coupe weighs in at 1655KG but that's EU spec (or something) which includes a 75KG driver. So the actual weight of the car is 1580KG. The convertible, thanks to a steel folding roof rather than carbon fiber + all the other gubbins comes out at 1885KG on the same comparison chart. So in reality, the convertible 'only' weighs 1805KG. Still heavy though - kinda puts me off. I think it's more about how light the coupe is though, rather than the convertible being especially heavy. It's still lighter than a CLK63 cab and that has a fabric roof!

Bmw

applies lightweight materials including carbon fiber, aluminum, aluminum composite, and plastic to keep the weight down wherever possible. The Alfa Romeo QV is said to have a power-weight ratio dipping below 3kg/hp. Expect the QV to weigh below 3,300 pounds and have perfect 50/50 weight distribution front and rear. Finally, the new QV features a double wishbone suspension setup in the front and a Multilink suspension at the rear.

Originally built for racing homologation purposes, BMW s E30 M3 was designed to push the envelope of what an already capable 3-Series could do. It was an automotive icon back in the 80s though now its power output is now easily eclipsed by a Toyota Camry. Over the decades, the M3 has only grown in power, performance (and in most cases, weight), growing from a niche sports sedan to one of the most popular performance-focused automobiles in the industry. BMW even created spicier one-off versions that upped the ante on the base M3: the E30 Sport Evolution, the E46 CSL and the

For 2016, the vehicle will is based on the latest-generation 3 Series just like in the previous model. However, you might notice that this review has referred to the M3 as a 4-door sedan. Fret not, as there is an available two-door coupe and convertible version. The vehicles have simply been renamed M4 and have been covered in a separate review on our site. Irrespective of the body style, these M cars will certainly have a way to make their enthusiasts very content.

I have an 2004 m3 e46 convertible. I'd like to know it's REAL 0-60 time, as i've found different places claiming different time. some places say it's 5.2sec some 5.4sec and some 5.5sec I'd like to know what is the real 0-60 of the vert. also would the time decrease if i was to fit a hard top and remove the soft top? and also would the 0-60 time take longer if i was to accelerate from 0 with top down? as i know with top down you have more drag. please let me know people. thank you.

The automotive enthusiast magazine said that the new Z goes from rest to 60 in 5 seconds which seemed a bit awkward to us since the new Z is smaller, lighter and more powerful this year. Well, to our delight Motor Trend has just released their figures and they have reported a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.7 seconds. Motor Trend also reported a quarter mile run of 13.3 seconds at 105.7 mph. Pretty impressive for a car that starts at $29,930. For arguments sake the new $57,500 BMW M3 Coupe also does 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 second and the $56,610 Lexus IS-F reports a 0 to 60 mph time of 4.6 seconds. Click through for the video...

The engine will feature BMW's patented induction process known as M TwinPower Turbo. It uses two low-inertia turbochargers running a maximum 1.3 bar of boost pressure and fed by a innovative water-to-air intercooler system mounted atop the engine. Meanwhile, weight-saving features, such as a magnesium sump, see the new engine tip the scales 22 pounds under that of its predecessor, at a claimed 452 pounds.

3 is a high performance variant of BMW's popular 3 series. At the heart of the rear-drive M cars is a 4.0-liter V-8. The normally aspirated engine channels 414 horsepower and 295 lb. ft. of torque to the pavement. It's matched with either a six-speed manual or an optional, seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. My test car had the latter, and so fitted, the M3 is a sub-five second, 0-60 car.

Hi, I am interested in buying a Euro M3 from Japan and shipping it over to Canada. I am trying to find the performance time on USDM M3s. I checked on wikipedia, and it states both Euro and USDM M3s have the 0-60 time for M3s are about ~5.5 seconds. Version Power 0-60 mph[citation needed] Top Speed 3.0 L-24v I6 Euro 210 kW (286 PS; 282 hp) 5.4 s [5] 155 mph (249 km/h)[5] (electronically limited) U.S. 179 kW (243 PS; 240 hp) 5.6 s 137 mph (220 km/h)[6] (electronically limited) 3.2 L-24v I6 Euro 236 kW (321 PS; 316 hp) 5.2 s 155 mph (249 km/h) (electronically limited) U.S. 179 kW (243 PS; 240 hp) 5.5 s 139 mph (224 km/h) (electronically limited) It seems that the performance specs are kind of identical for 0-60 time. Is it worth it to buy Euro spec? Are these times correct based on your experience? Thanks.

This big bore fuel rail is machined, polished, laser etched and then anodized for a stealth surface finish. It is compatible with stock and aftermarket fuel injectors. It features a large 0.65" internal bore with 3/4"-16 female threads (-8AN O-ring port) at each end to accept a variety of adapter fittings for custom high flow fuel system builds. It is compatible with all fuel types including popular alcohol mixtures such as E85. It is a direct bolt on for all S54 BMW engines with no modifications required.

So, here's one of my most interesting/curious observations. Saw the S60 R video on Top Gear. He suggested turning off the DSTC and go to the "Advanced" suspension setting for maximum take off. I also use Amaco Ultimate and had about 1/4 tank of gas. With all of these factors working in combination, I was AMAZED at how fast this car accelerates 0-60!!! Although I didn't have a stop watch on it, it "felt" and seemed identical to how fast my M3 accelerated. Is this possible???

So went up against a Mercedes C63 AMG last nite on my way to philly... from a stop i had him going into 3rd(which i shifted too early),about half car length. He was pulling on me in 3rd but i hit the brakes due to a truck in front of me so i don't know what the end result would have been. Anyways moral of the story is per the Benz website the C63 boasts a 451hp 6.3l V8 that goes 0-60 in 4.3...with just the DINAN Stage II I would agree we are looking around 4secs. BAD ASS!

BMW introduced the completely redesigned sixth-generation 3 Series sedan for the 2012 model year, but it kept the M3 sedan on the shelf pending it restarted the speedy four-door 2016 BMW M3 Sedan. As it will be equipped with an extraordinarily powerful engine when compared to the earlier model, buyers will get a more agile and a faster sedan that ever before. The new M3 sedan is expected to come with a mild refresh.

It's a great step up from the E60 M5. The 5-series since the E34 and E39 was basically built from the same platform/Chassis as the corresponding 7-series (E32 and E38). When BMW came out with the 7-series E65/66 they switched the 5-series platform on it's own, the E60. To me the E60 was too hard riding and not enough luxury and comfort for what you paid for. The E60 was all Sport and always harsh and not convenient for everyday driving. The new F10 platform switched back to using the 7-series platform. I find it to have the right combination of Luxury and sport mixed in.

With every generation BMW has managed to squeeze water from granite, approaching perfection by improving upon its core tenets of composed chassis and vehicle dynamics in spirited driving; the ultimate driving machine. Cars built as homage to their factory racing efforts like BMW’s M Division are enhanced by addressing the tactile necessities of a racing machine. Steering where hand movements and car direction are one, brake feel to the point of brake texture, and instantaneous engine response.

So I saw an F10 5 series yesterday and loved it. I was near a dealership so I stopped in to check one out up close. Once I sat in it I -really- loved it. BMW has fixed everything I didn't like about the E9x and E60 interiors. The dashboard now wraps around the driver a little more, the center console is raised up, etc. It feels a lot nicer than my M3. How big is the performance difference between the two? Obviously the handling is not going to be there because of the softer suspension and additional weight. But in terms of just straight up acceleration, how close are they? The M3 is about is slow in a straight line as I can handle. If the 550i is close then I may have to get one. I don't really think I want an M5, though. A 550i seems to fit more of my preferences these days. Either that or I'll just stick with plan A and get a GTR - a totally different car, but like I said I love acceleration. The interior of the F10 is so good though, I can't stop thinking about how nice it was.

, which varies both intake and exhaust valve timing for greater power and torque spread as well as reduced emissions and better drivability. The engine also has a separate throttle butterfly for each cylinder, which BMW uses to quicker pedal response than a single throttle plate. A new electronic management system comes with the engine, not only regulating the engine itself but integrating the clutch, gearbox, steering and brakes, along with on-board diagnostics and control of engine ancillaries.

German magazine AutoBild is out this week with some fresh M2 speculation. 374 hp and 400 ft lbs or torque. Further they believe pricing should be right around 56k Euro for the would-be M4 killer. With figures like that, it s not hard to question who wouldn t stretch from the M235i to the M2. Further it s not that hard to see the M2 putting a dent in M4 sales. Obviously we re not suggesting BMW will kill either car but it s easy to see how the M2 could nail the sweet spot in price vs performance versus the M235i or M4.

True... I was never able to break 4.7 sec to 60 in my E90M3 MT, whereas DCT has been measured as low as 3.9-4.3 both in publications and by M3 board members. The short gearing in M3 MT through 1st gear makes launches even more difficult vs the DCT, as more torque is applied to the wheels in 1st vs the DCT. I knew this going into my purchase and after testdriving both the MT and DCT, the choice was obvious for me.
