Bmw m 3 e 46 vs . 5.0? Who wins?

my friend just bought a 04 m 3, he said he beat a.13 gt mustang on the hwy while rolling. The GT had a boss 302 intake manifold. The bmw had a dinan tune and an.exhaust and cold air.intake and said he smoked the mustang. He also claims the m 3 runs 4.2 0-60 out of a 3.2 liter 6 which stock makes 330 hp. Does this sound realistic?

Your friend needs to stop sniffing glue.

Those are classed in with me, and it does not go well for them.

The M3 did not get "fast" until the body after his. The 4.2 second 60 run is a neat trick considering that the next body with the 4.0L 400 hp V8 would not always be able to do that.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.

The CSL, a factory "hot rod" version of the 04 M3, had 360 hp and was 240 lbs lighter than a standard M3, yet it could only manage to pull off a 4.8 second 0-60.
Although I think that it is unlikely that your friends car could beat a 13 GT, I have seen videos of cars that will walk a BMW from a dig, and get walked by that same BMW from a roll.

If all of the planets are in perfect alignment, it is plausible that your friend beat that Mustang. But, as with any legitimate experiment, the results need to be repeatable... Your buddy needs to beat that car a few more times for the right to claim a solid victory.

It could have been an old guy in the wrong gear or someone who just wasn't really trying too.

Although Dinan M3's 0 to 60 times did not improve substantially over stock, doing so in the mid to high 4 second range, Dinan would add 3.91 gears at the customer's option.
If the one he raced had those gears, this could have helped immensely in a roll on. Especially so since with the higher Dinan rev limiter, they still reach 60 mph in second gear.

lol ok! went with my nephew when he was interested in an e92 m3, I test drove it, it did not feel like a 400hp car, I can guarantee without a doubt, my car would eat that car's lunch 7 days a week! and I'm at a little over 400rwhp, so yeah, your buddy is FULL OF ****!!!

I love BMWs honestly but the majority of owners... they're like the type of ppl who pull the covers up and dutch oven themselves if they fart in bed.

I didn't own one. It was my moms. I loved beating on that car though. She traded it in for a 2015 Rubicon (when did Jeeps start costing $50K????).

A lot of housewives around here drive them. I told one of the guys who owned one that my mom has the same car, I never saw that car in his driveway again....

If the BMW had a Bama tune, then it would have been a whole different story

If the BMW had a LSx swap it would be a different story...


I got to check out a well done clean E36 M3 with a LS2/T56 in it and MY GOD... I just about needed to change my pants afterwards.

i walk E92 M3s from a roll, so it would be pretty ugly against an E46. FBO/tune 335is seem to be a lot faster than the V8 M3s
