I've seen 315 and 325 but also saying that it's the same engine as in the M3, meaning 333. it could be differences in exhaust but who knows - it's not even on BMW's site anymore of course.GTOWILL said:Phobos: My bad dude. You're right. I've also seen it refered to as the M Z3. You might be right about the HP too. I did a quick search and found 315, but I don't really know.
Either way...it was fun!
They don't make the M anymore. M roadster has the exact same set up as the M3 including the quad exaust pipes in the back, Exceptphobos512 said:I've seen 315 and 325 but also saying that it's the same engine as in the M3, meaning 333. it could be differences in exhaust but who knows - it's not even on BMW's site anymore of course.
I think they got rid of it because the new Z4's were coming out or its too dangerous for such a small car. Z4 has what 225hp max, big step down from its M brothers.Edmunds said:Last year, BMW installed a massaged 3.2-liter inline six underneath the dome-like bonnet of the M coupe and roadster. Capable of brewing up 315 horsepower at 7,400 rpm, this is an increase of 75 ponies from the previous engine, and provides 251 foot-pounds of pure pin-you-to-the-seat thrust at 4,900 revs. It makes slightly less horsepower than in the M3s because some of the engine components had to be reduced so that it can fit into the engine bay of the smaller Ms.
WKDWS6 said:You must not be stock huh? Those cars run a solid half second faster in the 1/4 than a stock GTO. They Dyno at 315whp.
NICE KILL...probably shocked the driver...
isn't the C5 in your sig refering to your new Z06? if so, i wouldnt call it a 'stock" C5. kind of misleading
