    e36 m3 vs. R32

    sorry for posting here, but i am still a wrx owner, but racing my r32 at the time.

    Ok, so... driving down the highway towards a bmw dealership to get some parts for my friend, i see this nicely waxed black e36 m3. Had an exhaust system, chip, intake... those i knew for sure. I remember this guy when he first got his car, but he didn't remember me. Anyhow, we ran from a roll from about 40mph - 100mph and i pulled on him about 1/2 car lengths. Mind you, i didn't have my chip flashed yet, because i had just returned from the dealer. I was working with a cai and the free exhaust valve mod.

    Nice run imo.

    I won't call BS because you were obviously racing someone who couldn't drive. I looked at your times and specs on your homepage. The M3 runs the same times as your car bone stock, not to mention much more HP and TQ stock PLUS he had mods. An M3 with those mods would spank you all day long from a dig or a roll.

    i think your thinking about the e46 m3...which is significantly faster. The e36m3 and r32 are drivers race, stock for stock.

    i had my bro run the sl500 and i was in my r32. we did it from a stop, he spun while i gained instantly a few car lengths. We stopped there

    I also ran like 3 e36 m3's with the sl500 on night, from anywhere from 40mph -120mph, and every time i would pull on them uptop easily.

    I know man. It' sOK to be open minded......there will be always someone faster, richer, better looking, cooler, taller, younger than you....These guys just need to accept that and everything will be OK
