I too have a person vendetta with the M3 too.  Ever since they kicked my butt 
with my Honda, I hated them.  I just find it so hard to believe that a 238hp 
car can kick my butt.  But how does BMW do it?  2.8 liter engine isn't a 
whole lot of displacement.  My moms jag has 4.0 and is not even close to the 
M3.  0-60 in about 5.3 seconds stock.  This is from 238hps.  Thats M-Power 
for ya.  My car has about the same HP as the M3 now, but I will never be able 
to get to 5 second club.
