I second that.
I heard that too about the M3 but quite frankly I was pleasently suprised how quick my M3 is even at low rpm ranges.
True, they have loads of torque high up but its not soo bad low down in the rpm range either
: : 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.
