...but I crept my way back in 2nd, and waved bye-bye in third. I shut it down not too long into third because we weren't exactly on the best road for street racing.

That thing is quick out of the hole, but the LS1 just had too much torque for him.

It's an M powered Z3. I think it's got 315 hp. My thread title is incorrect, it was a 2003 I believe.

It's called an M Roadster dude. There's also an M Coupe (it's basically a hard top Z3 - pretty ugly though).

You don't see them calling it an M330ci do you? That's what I thought. :)

And according to what I've read, it's engine is the same engine as in the M3, which means 333HP.

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!

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.

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, Except
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.
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.
