Hey guys, this is my first post here. I am currently on a waiting list for the new m3. Just thought I'd chime in. In America it is currently illegal for car companies to underrate their cars like they used to, so whatever HP or TQ numbers are posted by the companies, those are real. Chevy used to under rate their cars big time about 5 years ago. My car supposedly had 335 hp at the crank from the factory but when dynoed, it put down 330 rwhp with an automatic trans.
