    E46 M3's typically trap at 106+mph and run low 13's in the 1/4 mile (13.1-13.4) depending on driver.

    I'm hoping my '03 wrx with vf39 + supporting mods + helix tmic can trap a little higher.

    I would think typically the average driver wouldn't be hitting low 13s in a E46 M3, I think they are a mid 13 second car with the average driver and with a great driver can hit 13.3 or so.

    A good driver will get 13.0-13.3 @ 107/108mph

    A decent/average driver will get 13.4-13.6 @ 105/106mph

    That's been my experience as well. I've seen stock E46 M3's trap high 107's to low 108's in the 1/4 mile.

    I have never seen a stock E46 come even close to a 13.0, I guess the ones I have seen at the track don't have great drivers, although I also think the best mag number I ever saw for an E46 was a 13.3. My buddy's boss has one and he races it alot (track racing), he got walked pretty hard by a stock SRT-8 300M and his M3 has a chip and exhaust and a few other goodies.

    Head over to the M3 forums.

    There are quite a few people in the 13.0-13.3 time bracket. Again, they are the better drivers though obviously.

    its extremely difficult to find one of those so if you run into one on the street or a drag strip, dont be scared.

    It depends "what" you run into it with on the street, lol.

    stock wrx = be scared or better yet, dont bother

    stage2 wrx = be scared. It will be close from a dig and you will get spanked from a roll

    stage2.5 wrx = your're good from a dig, but will likely be edged out from a roll still

    stock STi = worry. From a dig it will be really close; a drivers race... From a roll, close until you hit higher speeds and the M3 will take over.

    stage2 STi = don't be scared. You're good from a dig, and should also be good from a roll... but probably not by anymore than 2 car lengths.

    i pretty much agree with everything but now the 2.5's can be protuned making them stage 4!!!

    Depends on the turbo and the tune.

    VF34 and VF22 turbo's trap pretty similarly which is anywhere from 106-110 depending on driving and tune. The VF30 and VF39's tend to trap a bit lower however.

    i dont care if they are tuned or not, anything smaller then a 16g to me isnt considered stage 4.
