Really, you are right. The stock engine went 13.1@175 on 1/4 mile.

This engine is not stock! Perhaps 12.7 on 1/4 mile... perhaps..

no one said it is untrue ..problem is no speedclock is accurate, specially older ones are pretty off the real speed, 100km/h speedclock is most likely 95km/h and 200km/h is most likely 190km/h or even worse, no one knows the tire combination of the video car which also could effect the different between speedclock speed and real speed..and no one knows if not modified..

M Power and...?
This is the 1996 3.2l 321hp (S52B32) version and the 286hp/321hp version are not Germany only they are sold world wide, only the USA recived the 240hp e36 fake M3 and never the true e36 M3... Both US version of the M3 with the S50USB30 and S52USB32 only had 240hp the only different is slightly increased torque from 305 to 320Nm, both engines were based on the M50 and M52 engine of the 325i and 328i and never on the real M3 engine the S50B30 and S52B32
