: low end torque which gives it not so impressive off the line acceleration. Shouldn't the 535is (US spec) be even with it or even edge on it to 60-80mph?

No way! - the M3 0- 60 times are much quicker than a 535is or M535i.
That M3 engine(in any form) is very fast revving, it has less weight to pull and more power than a 535is. It does have less torque at low revs which means you'll have to 'drive' the car more to get the best out of it.
