There is a M6 profile on this software and after adjusting for SMG shift speeds, it was roughly the same as found in the mags (slightly slower than the mag).

One of the short comings of this software is it doesn't allow for wheelspin..... So I would attribute the difference between the software and R&T for the M6 to wheel spin.

No doubt wheelspin will allow for faster 0-60 times for the M3.....I agree with the poster above of getting 4.4-4.5 seconds but the most accurate piece of data is the trapspeed....this gives the true power of the car.
