    Why would a car with less power, worse aerodynamics and higher drivetrain losses pull harder?

    CAI and exhaust for the M3 is probably more like 10-15hp gain.

    I'm just wondering why do some of you guys really believe the M3 is "really" fast from the roll? I mean it's quick, but not that hard to pull 2-3 car lengh on them for me at 120-130mph from 65-70mph roll. The M3 and the 996 Carrera will probably tie from the roll.

    Re: Thanks guys..

    I've beaten all the porches I've run across, or into also. I like pulling up to porches with a couple of old people in them, revving my engine, and making them eat my dust!!! WOOT! I then like to watch their faces grimace in my rear view as I pull train lengths... stupid old people...

Porches can't even take the M3 .. and on top of all this this guys M3 wasn't stock. I don't think he had 400 hp like he said but with his mods he must have added 20 hp at the wheels atleast.. M3's are tweaked already and very hard to make faster..anyways It was cool !

    Peeps probably think it is quick from a roll because the STi and WRX don't put down enough whp stock to take one out from a roll.

    Your car on the other hand does... stock..

    1. The video is proof...even though not stock.

    2. Don't have to believe or "buy" the posts, but it's a fact. A stock STi will pull on an M3. Done it time after time. Comparing specs and visuls is not the same as real life.

    Just me and my mouth running OT.
