Sub 4s 0-60 M3?

Anyone achieve a sub 4 second M3, and if so what mods?

Kinda wish M3 could hit 4.0 for the price as I want to buy and know I'm faster than most.

I'm sure fully bolted on ones can hit that

Car and Driver tested a stock 2011 M3 / DCT at 3.9 sec 0-60, if I recall correctly

However.....this has NEVER been replicated by anyone else, nor by C&D themselves. Makes you wonder. Reliably, DCT will get you 4.2-4.3, and manual 4.4-4.5, once you learn how to properly launch the car.

Road and track ran 4.1 with a 6mt. A full bolt on and a good launch can probably get under 4 sec. A good 0-60 time is really going to be dependent on traction.

0-60 is a race for slow cars....

If I told you the m3 hit 0-60 in 4.0 sec but it really did it in 4.5 sec would you be able to tell the difference?

Don't get so wrapped up in trivial stats.

For a daily with a lot of highway driving 60-130 is more important IMO. Of course it's also where I can get traction. Can't wait for this Vbox timer to come in to see what it's doing...

Yes I would tell the different by 0.5s, especially in the 4 range.

Anyway, I believe the AA supercharger oughta do the trick.

From what I have read, about a 5% change is where you can begin to perceive a difference. 95% of all people will feel a difference with a 10% change, which is like the difference in 0-60 between an M3 and a Z06 Vette.

Tried it once with my M3 when it was stock with 80 miles on it. 100 degree day. Slightly uphill. First time it was 4.8 seconds as I hit the rev limit/fuel cut off in 1st gear. Second time I short shifted 1st gear at around 7,800 RPM and got 4.2 seconds.

It's not a stat I care about but with practice and better conditions I could have produced some consistent 3.7- 3.9's easily.

On my 335 (tune, meth, LSD) I did it a few times and started in the 4.2 to 4.3 range starting in 2nd gear (6AT) and after lots of practice got consistent 3.8's with a best of 3.5 (also slightly uphill).

All tests with the M3 and 335 were done on factory tires at normal PSI on desolate city streets.

Where in this thread does it even mention street racing? Stop being an alarmist, we've got enough of these already

Ya and you've got a sick tuning! Looks better than the AA supercharger.
That's the performance I expect from M3.

How is it that with 650hp you still can't beat the V6 GTR?
