hahaha well at least its pretty positive, i think that we are going to have to wait untill some "real" tests come out, where these car magazines can do whatever they want to the car (with in reason of course)

i did however like the line:

"The previous M3 was a blinder of the first order; the newest model makes it seem almost pedestrian by comparison."

i guess we will have to wait and see it this is true, it e46 is a BRILLIANT car so i dont know

That is not a misprint. It is the often quoted SAE net hp and torque which is different than the DIN hp number that you may have seen floating around in European-sourced info. SAE and DIN use slightly different standards for hp measurement.
