My brother has an M Roadster w/ the 315HP motor and its fast as hell. It seriously feels just as strong as my other friends STI. Theres no way my alltrac can keep up with it especially on the freeway. You must have one fast st185 if you can beat it, let alone keep up with it.

M3's arnt that fast around town it seems. I've gone neck and neck with one while I was at 9lbs on a dying turbo (this is also at a somewhat high elevation). However, one on the freeway at high speeds he would kick my ass.

Keep in mind that most cars can hang with most faster cars all the way through 2 gear w/ a good driver of course. Thats why freeway racing is a good indicator of how much juice your car really has.

HAHA that reminds me of a story my Step dad told me about racing a 911 in his Honda CVCC. He said he stayed with him...till he had to switch to second...!

just because you beat one doesnt mean they are slow, actually i beat a guy in an E46 M3 with my 330 once because he was such a bad driver but my 330 is no where near as fast as an M3...and you said yourself the guy was a bad driver, so besides that one race what are you basing your statement on? either way if you think they are slow just wait for the E90 M3 with the 400hp V8 based on the E60 M5's V10. *drool*


anyway....i too am curious of what mods you have

The point is you don't buy an M3 for an out and out fast car. They're relatively inexpensive for a European luxury sports car, and many all-tracs on here would lay down faster ETs and 0-60mph times. You buy an M3 because you appreciate a WELL ROUNDED car.

BTW, im betting it wasn't an M3 CSL that you raced. If it was im impressed!

i beat a dodge avenger two days ago on the freeway going about 110, and i was still pulling on him. I felt pretty cool.


then, 15 mins later, on bellevue way, i got my ass spanked a by a hatchback civic with a b 16 and some serious mods. I may have been carrying two girls but that was no more than 250 extra pounds - but jesus i got fucking beaten

not sure where Razzo is but if he's in the US there is no way it was a CSL as we dont get them here, the closest we get to a CSL is the competition performance package which is just CSL wheels, upgraded brakes, 14.5:1 steering ratio instead of 15.4, and less intrusive DSC (dynamic stabilitly control)

i dont think anyone meant to flame you, if i came off that way i apologize...i was just trying to say that with a good driver in the M3 you probably wouldn't have beat him, considering your 14.2 1/4 and a stock M3's 13.3...
