    My mate has one, not driven it but he's taken me out in it a few times. they are on another level! awesome! 155mph in a heart beat. the sound that V8 makes
    Don't fancy the running cost much tho

    Looking forward to a little head to head in the M3 one day, think i might loose tho!

    Any advice would be much appreciated.
    My money's on 300-310. Remember to get the print out to post.

    The figure you first see will be the at the wheels figure. They will then apply a correction factor to estimate what it's putting out at the flywheel.

    Good luck

    Would be nice to get near to 300, I kinda expect to be a little disappointed tho. It'll be nice to know, either way.
    I'm sure you'll see far more than 260bhp

    Yeah, erm mine was the 318is 16v, that was replaced for the 3.0litre Motorsport engine so I think i'll pass on the 328 cheers

    Well, took car down to get a power run done today. I can safely say I will never ever put myself or any car I own though that experience ever again! The NOISE was unbelievable! the heat coming from the car UNBELIEVEABLE! I think i'm still in shock. never again! Flat out at 7500 rpm again, again and again and AGAIN!
    I was standing with my hands over my ears waiting for the bang. I was sure it was going to go BANG! THE NOISE!

    Any how, I was not expecting the results that came in.......

    246bhp @ wheels

    329bhp @ flywheel

    Anyone explain this!

    The bloke doing it was well surprised, me too. These cars never make the claimed 321bhp. Whats with mine????!!

    The noise!

    We have just had a new vendor join us "emaps" I know he lists the M3 Evo, may be worth picking his brains
