In Reply to: Not new M3 engine... posted by Hankdoll on January 02, 2001 at 12:40:30:

Autoweek said it will have the 315hp EURO motor that was in the e36 M3/Mcoupes. This is not the identical 330 HP engine from the new M3 (though close).

made that announcement weeks ago, and it was a guess at best. Automobile mag and Autoweek have confirmed it will be a de-tuned (15hp) new M3 engine. The 3.0 is almost as fast as the E36 M3 engine so that doesn't make a ton of sense. The price has gone from 38K to 48k so if you get the old motor I woud buy a 99 or a 00 and have DInan stroke it (less then 10K and a lot faster then 315hp) just my 2 cents, but I trust Autoweek.
I hope :))
