I don't know where you're getting your numbers for the 330i, but
the Car & Driver that compared the 330d to the 330i pegged it
at 5.6s. Even the 335i turbo car with 300hp and almost as much
torque as the new M3 only gets to 60 in 4.9s.
And, 0-60 is not the be-all-and-end-all.
The E46 M3 doesn't do 4.8 does it? So the new 330 if it is a 3.0 I
guess will have a turbo or something?
I personally don't really like the E46 M3 and a lot of others don't
like it either. If the new M3 is a dog then personally I'd prefer to
take something a bit more regular then add aftermarket (probably
I have an E46 M3 and often wish I'd gone the other route and put a
supercharger on a 330.
