After much searching, I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. Basically I am looking for the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times for a '95 M3. I would also like the trap speed. Also, if anyone's got this info for a '95 325 and a '96 328, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

Looked at the car stat site, find it pretty wierd.

Lists 95 M3 to do 0-60 in 6.2, and 97 as to do it in 5.5 and the 1/4 mile in 14.
Have they mixed markets? A euro 97 (321hp) is claimed to do 0-100km/h(62mph) in 5.5-5.6seconds and they run lower the 14 seconds in the quarter mile.

What are the 0-60 times for US M3's?


(terribly sorry for the hi-jack)

According to who, bmw or tests?
Mine should be faster or as fast at least then?
But BMW states 6.0 seconds 0-62.
Magazines tested them to 5.8 when they were new.
0-60times are usually 1-2 tenth of a second faster then 0-100km/h.
Could be traction problems I guess...

0-60 is under 6 seconds, alot of those sites are weird. 5.7 for a us M3 is what i hear most often.

So are we talking all E36 M3's? Was there no performance increase in the OBDII models?

thats what I've always read too, but if a 240hp US M3 does it in 5.7, what does the 321hp Eurospec do it in???????????? Never could find that out for sure. I know the new e46 M3's are at 4.7 so it would it to be inbetween somewhere I guess.


Dutch.....take that Eurospec ///M on a couple runs and let us know the real deal!


<span style='color:green'>
AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

Everything I've seen about the 3.2 is 5.5seconds 0-62.
My euro 3.0 tests around 5.8.

The 343hp E46 is stated to do 0-62 in 5.2.

They all do more then 62mph in second gear. And the extra 2mph in our test interval usually adds 2 tenth to time.

Ar all US 0-60 times tested on prepped strips? They are all faster then here

i am 99.9999999999% sure the e46 M3 has a 0-60 in under 5 seconds.

i would be seriously surprised if even 0-62 was above 5 seconds.

I think the e46 M3 weighs more than the e36 M3.. so the 0-60 in the euro spec e36 M3 would probably be very close to that of an e46 M3, im guessing just above 5 seconds.

My instruction manual says 5.5 sec from 0-100 km/h. I'm sure the US 240HP models do 6.5 or something, because the eurospec 3.0 does that sprint in 6 sec.

Just as Ilivetoride said: 0-60 or 0-62 would do 1 or 2 tenth of a sec.
