Question for all and any 3-Series owners..

I am looking for a useful website that indicates the basic engine specs, horsepower and 0-60 times of the entire history of 3-Series Models. I was able to easily locate this stuff for the 5-series, but so far have struck out on the 3-series models. I want to turn this information into a useful, quick reference chart on my own Bimmer website.

Thanks in advance for anything you might have.
