Doesn't sound as good as the E90 for sure, but still sounds better than the 911 Turbos driving near it lol.

@Rick

You can add 0-60. We used to list only 0-100 kph but now we allow 0-60 as well!

Click on "Add performance figure" and go from there.

Why is it that 1/4 mile times / MPH are accepted as legit but not 0-60mph times?

For the power to weight ratio you use [quote]bhp / tonne but for weight distribution you use standard weight in as it is in the U.S.

For engine power you use both and for max speed you use both

Why not use both 0-60mph and 0-100kph? Why the double standard?

It\'s odd how the M3 E92 Coupe is like 3K more than the sedan although it doesn\'t perform or even look any better. I\'d get the M3 E90 sedan over the Coupe and any other 55-70k sports sedan / coupe.

why is m3 sedan allways faster on track than m3 coupe, i know m3 is faster in straight line ?


User avatar

FF  9y ago

I think that is something wrong regarding the time for autozeitung. faster than both R8, faster than many ferrari's, porsche, lamborghini corvette and also fastest with around 1,5 sec compared with M3 e92 wich is abnormal. did anyone double check it?
something is incorect.

Id take the C63 over the M3 4 Door, but definetly Not over the coupe.


User avatar

No i think it would be better to buy an m3 the m3 has better brake's suspension and sharper handling than the c63 amg.


User avatar

BumRush  9y ago

Apparently not, but hey just get a C63 for the same price:)

The M3 and M5 are statement cars for BMW as they make no sportscars and i wish they listened to guys like us as i to would have twin turboed this SOB. Who cares how smooth a sedan is when we want POWER to make a statement.

Flybye  10y ago

I'll take a 2003 M5, and twin turbo charge it. These new BMWs are sooo ugly. :-/

come on if the m3 e92 coupe doess the 1/4mile in 12.5sec then the m3 e90 sedan could probably do the 1/4mile alot faster than 13.19sec i think most of you will find that the m3 e90 sedan is only all it till bit hevier than the m3 e92 coupe and the m3 e90 sedan match's the coupe's performance.
