I would trust these sources instead

here is tests done by car and driver
08 C6

08 M3

08 IS-F
http://www.caranddriver.com/assets/d...xisf_08_ss.pdf

here is more stuff for your knowledge

and these sources have the 08 C6 LS3 quicker than the Audi R8 and the R8 is faster than the M3.

I am sorry if I've upset you. Its just a review I found on the net. I see that you are a proud owner and getting touchy. The review is German not Polish and I tend to trust the jerries when it comes to cars. I dont know much about the vettes and their versions and mods but in the review I have dug up I see really poor slalom and track times on the vette's behalf. Anyway, even if you put all the power in the world in an American Supersports car thats made of plastic and has an interior taken out of a Lada it would never come any closer to being a poised and sorted driving machine that an M3 is.

btw the c&d review of the M3 has some really poor data, maybe they had a lemon test car. I'm sure you've seen the r&t (also AMERICAN) figures for the M3 0-400@12.5. And there is still DCT and CSL to come...
