    Two: Older Mustang 5.0, Older M3

    Wound up next to some kid in an older 5.0 Mustang on the parkway. Looked tiptop, sounded nice. Pulled even and he gunned it. Dropped to third at 60 and wound third out to redline. Pulled alongside him and it was even until the end of 3rd.

    Ripped the ass off an older M3 while merging onto a parkway. Driver was unhappy with this and tried to continue driving at insane speeds, slamming on his brakes when coming upon traffic, tailgating, taking off in the clear sections only to come back to normal speeds for another round of assery.

    Not sure the year, definitely not a new one.

    The M3 started in '95 and had 240 hp back then...I'm pretty sure a stock WRX would be able to take one of those. Good kills, nonetheless!

    M3s weren't made between 92 and 93, there are 94 M3s that were Euro imports running around.

    E30 M3 - 88-91 had about 180-190 stock hp. Evo+ versions can be upwards of 300hp on the S14 4 banger.

    E36 M3 - USDM - 95-99 had 240 stock hp, be careful of the turbo ones that can run over 550rwhp.

    E46 M3 - 2002-present had 333hp stock.


    Nice kill

    Isn't there a limited eurospec e36 with 320hp? Man that would be sooo sweet to have the styling of the e36 with tons more power from the factory.

    There are 2 versions of the Euro E36 M3. The version based off the S50 motor (years 94-95) had 280hp and the versions based on the S52 motor (years 96-99) had 321hp.

    Why can't we get Eurospec cars over here in the US
