Owner is from Canada and there were no M3's that came close. This 350 actually beat z06's, Ferrari 430 Scuderia, GT-R and other higher end cars. The only car that beat this 350 was another heavily modded Nissan GT-R. Im sure there are heavily modded e92 M3's in the US that can take this car but still very impressive IMO for a $15K used car that was built from the ground up.
Again a stock normally aspirated trim 350z is no match for a stock trim E92 M3. I had a heavily modified 350z and it was still a pig, even on a track. I am an average driver btw.
This 350z is really modified and you should compare it to a heavily modified supercharged E92 M3 (apples VS apples) with 100- 700 pounds of weight reduction and this 350z would be destroyed all day with equal drivers and road conditions. If you have a shitty driver then yeah the 350z would be faster but all things equal, its no match. I bet you an S2000 with 300 pounds of weight reduction with a pro driver would put several seconds around some tracks vs this 350z and owner.
The same case can be made for some very heavily modified NA2 Acura NSX's. I bet they would put a big beat down on the 350z and have for years. Oh yeah I owned one of those too. lol The 350z was one of the slowest cars I have owned over the past 20 years.
