Not bad hp to weight ratio... it would be fairly close to a stock E92 M3 in the hp/weight department
at 2850 you would need to be about 325hp to be at the same power to weight ratio. im guessing you are pretty close though. i have seen e46s at 2500lbs and i would be surprised if yours wasnt closer to that number. not quite, but at almost a 1000 lbs lighter you far far offset the hp loss with handling ability. im jealous of you sir. nice car.
