With all do respect if you don't know that an M3 does not have a v6 then I am not sure you would understand the answer.

the M3 has 333hp with an INLINE 6. the 540i has a 290 hp V-8. the M3 weighs less than the 540i as well

very well put.



so ne ways

unlike america imports dont believe in huge displacement engineering in their cars. sometng america desperatly needs to learn cough*cadilac 16,8.0Lviper, etc*cough.

although u are probably not knoladgable enough to know the difference the m3 is an i6, a porsche is an h6, etc.

v doesnt stand for 'the number of cylnders is :

a subaru wrx a fun little h4 has 4 cylinders and can smoke a 850i v12.

ur brain --- err i mean automotive knowlege is too small to understand if i explain fully therefore long story short, power to weight ratio is less in the 540

in the e36 -- i mean 'old shape' 240hp/3000lb > 282hp/4000lb
e46/new shape 333hp/3400lb > 325hp/4000lb
