  1. Re: M3 or this

    this!....and the m3 in the US gets 333hp u get 343hp and the 0 to 60 for the mb is 4.9 not 5.1
     
  2. Re: M3 or this

    ill repeat it oncce mmore.
    the C32 is a sedam, more practical, and more confortable. although not as fun, its still as fast.
    takes my vote !!<!-- Signature -->
     
  3. I think i'd have to go with the M3. First, it produces 333 hp out of a inline 6 WITHOUT forced induction. Add a turbo or supercharger and you'll be well over 400 hp. Plus it is already faster stock vs. stock. I kind of liek the styling better of the mercedes, but the m3 is very close. I think I'd have to go with the m3...its also cheaper
     
  4. Re: M3 or this

    M3 hands down. Better performance car, better priced, and a real drivers car. Even if I needed the practicality of 4 doors, I wouldn't go for a C32.<!-- Signature -->

    Just look at the forum " IS IT A WORTHY OPPONENT OF THE M3? " and stop posting always the same boring comparisons !

    Also, The M3 has 343hp and not 333hp.

    German tuners have difficulties to boost the block of the M3 to 400hp so I think you're wrong. ( Don't trust me ??? check it at the Hartge or Hamann archives in magazines )
    Hartge had difficulties to make an upgrade of 40 more hp for this M3 just six months ago.
    Maybe Nowack or R.dynamics can do better but their engines are more likely to burst.

    In the US the emmissions equipment limits it to 333hp, instead of the 343. The 10hp loss doesn't blunt its performance too much though.<!-- Signature -->

    That's funny , because in France the Viper is less powerfull than in the US , at us it produces 394 hp.

    Yeah, I've heard that about European Vipers. I'm not sure why they're limited, but it sure isn't from emmisions equipment.<!-- Signature -->
     
  12. Re: M3 or this

    I would take the MERCEDES BENZ anyday over a BMW or Audi or Jag. No doubt about it.<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: M3 or this

    I guess I would choose the BMW M3 but I am not saying that this car is bad. I think all Mercedes Benz are more luxurious than any BMW but I don't think any Mercedes Benz can be as fun to drive as any BMW cars. Another thing why I choose the BMW M3 over this because this car only comes with a 5-speed auto, I prefer the BMW M3 6-speed manual because it's more fun to drive.
     
  14. Re: M3 or this

    Sure.
    But I hope MB will put manual gearbox in their future cars like in the new E500.<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: M3 or this

    If you are OLD, and want to look YOUNG, drive a Benz. If you want a great drive, get the M3. I'd get the M3 only b/c it's an M series, and the convertable is sweet.
     
  16. Re: M3 or this

    Stupid thinking...

    Nowadays Mercedes has closed the gap of perfs with BMW.

    I prefer the C32 AMG , the new M3 lacks discretion.

  20. Re: M3 or this

    THE BMW IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS CAR. FIRST THE NEW M3'S HAVE THE F-1 PADDLE SHIFT WHICH IS GREAT, THE OTHERS THE THE MANUAL. UCANT GO WRONG WITH THE BMW. THE BENZ IS SUPERCAHRGED, WHOOPPE. YES HORSEPOWER IS HORSEPOWER, BUT ID RATHER HAVE A N/A INSTEAD OF A SUPERCHARGER OR A TURBO. DONT GET ME WRONG THE C32 IS ONE OF THE NICEST CARS IVE DRIVEN, QUICK AND VERY NIMBLE. THE M3 IS JUST BETTER.

  23. Re: M3 or this

    the M3 does look very very good. I'm guessing it would be a lot of fun to drive. But i'd rather be seen driving a Benz then a BMW !!

    Have you ever noticed how BMW drivers always check out benzes when they pass by and how benz drivers don't even look at BMWs. So that's why a BMw owner will never be satisfied as a Benz driver will !!
    Anyway the M3 isn't that FASTEr then the AMG.
    So i would take the C32 AMG !!!<!-- Signature -->

    BMW doesnt add a S/C on the M3 (or any) cuz BMW arent specialized in the S/C.. Some people might think that putting forced induction on a car is a cheap way to get more power, but MB have perfected that forced induction..<!-- Signature -->

    i would say this because this is 354hp and that is 333hp
    and u added a turbo or a supercharger which made it 400hp
    if u add one of those turbo or supercharge to this it will still be higher than the m3<IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">
