z4 3.0 si vs e92 m3

I was in the z4 some guy was in the m3. He was a shitty driver but still it's ridiculous for a z4 to kick the crap out of the M3 even if he was a bad driver.


VERY disappointed with the m3. Exhaust note on that car is absolute shit as well.

Ridiculous?

How bout impossible?

Have you driven the M3 yourself? No? So how can you be very disappointed with it??

did the guy driving the M3 not have any legs/feet with which to push the gas pedal because that is about the only way I could see this happening

It was part of the BMW breast cancer drive thing. Like I said it was a really bad driver in the M3, but even so there should have been no chance.

If a Z4M wouldn't work with a new M3 then what chance has a humble 3.0L model got.

The driver needs to use the pedal on the right. He was probably working the clutch and brakes and going "wtf?".

But even the worst driver ever shouldn't have had a problem. And he was seriously going for it we lined up and everything.

Anyway, the exhaust though, really really sucks. Don't believe the videos you hear.

I'm actually not going to be surprised if the exhaust isn't up to expectations. As was the case with the e46 m3. We gotta wait for the CSL.

lol, I thought this was going to be another one of those "which car is faster" threads and I was going to

Having a 3.0si I can say there is no way it should beat an M3... unless it was a beauty competition

You're right. I'd rather have the unique look of a 3-series.

buuuuuurn

both cars look nice but the Z4 is like a statue while the 3 is more classically pretty

back on subject... perhaps it was a 1/8 mile race and the M3 driver couldn't launch for shit?

Of course the M3 should have waxed the Z4 3.0, but if I recall the Z4's are running 5.1 to 60..that's not slow. So you catch the M3 napping and it will take a bit to catch up.

BS !!
no fucking way a z4 3.0 can beat the m3, not even if the driver was a 350 pound fatass, (well maybe but...) anyway it's something logical, if not even the Z4M beats the m3 , do you think the 3.0 will?

Cherrs...

Z4M and M3 would be a close one. They have the same components for the most part.

So what is the point of this post? You beat the driver, not the car. End of story?

I just beat a F430 yesterday with my 350z. I'm dissapointed in the F430, sure he was a bad driver but that doesn't mean jack shit the car is still retarded. Oh and the exhaust sounds stupid.
