  1. Hey i thought that the M3 had 333 hp. is this the euro version or something? also, why do people say that it goes 0-60 in 5.1. is is very wrong. i think its the 0-60 of the m3 convertable.

    You guys are clueless!!! The Eurospec M3 has the same power as the American M3. The 343 bhp is in DIN which is European horsepower rating. That coupled with the fact that the American M3 is slightly modified to meet US emmision laws adds up to a measily difference of 5 bhp between the Eurospec and USspec M3. In other words its pretty much the same car and they both have a 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds tested by Car and Driver.<!-- Signature -->
