eh. I disagree. The convertible has a 300-400lb weight disadvantage.Pretty bad. They pull 2 car lengths on 6spd ZHP's up to 70-ish MPH, stock for stock. They pull like animals all the way up to redline, where your torque curve will start a rugged descent.
Yeha, it doesn't mention transmissions... but once again, the world convertible is the most obvious point.He also didn't mention transmissions. BTW Kris, I just found this:
3.0 M3 vs 330i ZHP
carpoint disagrees with you.Not in E36's. Their convertibles weigh 100 to 120 pounds more than coupes.
BTW: If you guys have different tranny's, the one with the manual will be the winner.
Steptronic isn't any faster if you're just putting your foot to the floor anyway - both will shift at redline..Sorry guys my car is an auto but i would obviously would use the tiptronic mode...
His M3 does not feel that fast??
One of my mates has an old 225bhp audi s3 and he was smoked by a 330ci. But now he has the new Audi s3 and that is fast.
Both of those are way off. The E36 M3 is most definitely >3100lbs. There's a truck scale near my house, I've taken lots of friends there (several E36 M3s). One that I recall was 3260lbs, the same weight as my 99 328i.auto.consumerguide.com gave me something different Kris.
2-door coupe: 2866 lbs.
2-door convertible: 2990 lbs
