    e46 vs. awd launch?

    i am going to race a friend of mine, he just got an e46 m3. We are going to do a 0-80mph run. We are going to do it from a stop, and i told him that i think that if i get a good launch, i can take him at least of the line. He thinks that he will destroy me off the line, let alone to 80 (we know the later part is true already).

    what do u guys think?

    how will i fare?

    ps in my r32

    if he can drive he should take you up to 80 but you'll get jump up to like 30. I honestly know only one person thats capable of launching a m3 to its limits. Is he SMG or stick??

    If memory serves me correctly, you are lightly modded with an intake, exhaust mod, and a reflash. I also remember you saying that you are expecting to run mid 13's. That is just about where an M3 is going to sit, so I think as long as you launch decently you will hold him off pretty well to atleast 50mph or so.

    good luck and let us know what happens

    his R32 is faster than the SL500 is.

    I wonder what has more of a pimp factor though? SL500 or M3? I am thinking you could get more ladies with the benz because most girls cannot appreciate the M3 performance and just see the benz and say.... "OMG Mercedes coupe!!!! OMG"

    then you get teh pussAy!

    ~235whp.

    oh the r32 is faster than the sl500.

    we have tested the sl500 and the m3. The sl500 gets the bling bling factor. The m3 doesnt even come close. girls just love the look of the sl500... to them, the m3 is a 3 series bimmer.

    That is awesome I think it is because the SL500 is bigger.....which equates to more $$$$$$

    Just for scientific purposes though I woul like to chime in on my WRX's bling factor. My roommate has a 1999 jetta and it works better than my WRX.....I guess they think it is a Hyundai or soemthing.....
