the horsepower loss is because of the us emission standars: intake,exhaust and ecu programing. euro spec //m motors cost a shit load 2 have imported, so we deal with what we have. this yr is the first year both euro & us //m 3's are the same (except of use of catalic converters)

Well, not sure with 315 with the new model coming in Euro, Due to BMW choosed to use of exsisting motorfamily the 240 hp motor was chosen to M-rod an M-cop. But im not so sure about the newcomer that it will have just 315, sure is that it will go faster than the earlier Euro spec but the M3 is going to have some 340 hp but they couldnt (they said) figure a decent exhaust out to the new M-z3.
