In Reply to: faster - 2001 z3 3.0 or 2001 330ci? posted by PeteZ3 on March 02, 2001 at 14:56:33:

Your light and your wheel base is shorter which means you put more HP down to the ground. Shift at 6K and he is all yours all day long.


To rear wheels stock you should be at about 200hp
a 330ci would be about 185.

What is faster from 0-60 and say 0-100?
Just got a new 2001 z3 3.0, 5-speed, and mybrother got a 2001 330ci auto (steptronic?). Of course they are both incredibly nice cars and very different - flat out who would kick who's ass - straight line, no twisties?
I am thinking my Z-3 would beat the automatics ass all day long, but I am still kind of getting used to the shifting (and bounding off the rev limiter)
i know top end sucks in the z-3 but thats ok - i'll live. how often can I exceed 130 on public roads anyway?
