Your car allegedly has 240Hp, the Z3 has 193-the Z3 weighs a little more than your Milano and you are on this board bragging because you beat him. Why don't you come back and brag when you whip an M roadster (which also has 240HP). Who really cares if you beat a stock Z3 with a highly modified Alfa. Its like a guy in a turbo charged Neon saying he beat a Z3. I believe the stock 3.0 made 183hp/ 183lb torque. According to European Car the Milano did 0-60 in about 7.7 seconds,exactly as I previously quoted and over a second slower than a 2.8. Yours allegedly makes 240Hp. I find that hard to believe considering your claim that it is only "slightly" modified. I dropped about $10,000 into my '79 Lancia Zagato engine and gained, hopefully, 40Hp. You "slightly" modified your 3.0 and gained almost 60hp! Well, even if that is true- which I doubt- with that kind of HP advantage who really gives a shit if you won. I would be more impressed if you rolled in here in a stock Milano and said you beat an M roadster. I used to destroy 3000GT's and 300zx's in the twisties with My Zagato and I was giving up major HP. You're here bragging when you had the clear upper hand. It sounds like P-envy to me.
