I just purchased an '05 M3 and had a lucky encounter today with a Supra Turbo BPU ++. I think that should put down close to 400 rwhp (I'm no expert, just basing off of what I've read) if I'm not mistaken. I spoke with the owner briefly afterwards about his mods. Very cool guy. Anyways, here it goes:

Traveling west on the freeway at 75 miles per hour, I approached a black Supra Turbo from behind and pulled up to the side so he knew I wanted to go. At 75 in third gear, I gunned it and he went at the same time. I am still breaking in the car, so I won't take it to redline (yet). I jumped half a car at first and then *bam* he shot ahead like a rocket. By the time we shut down at around 125 he was about 4 car lengths ahead. I was very impressed.

Moral of the story: my car is fast. Supra turbo's are faster (at least in a straight line!).:D

That is one of the most idiotic statements I've ever heard.

Nice run! that's about how my run went against an m3 from 55 - 85. I knew it was a bimmer when he was coming up from behind because of the angel eyes. I was pretty happy when he passed me later and I saw the m3 front fender :)

What? You must be very young not to understand about performance and luxury. May be one day you will.

Actually, the stock rims have not changed. My car has the "competition package" which pulls the wheels, brakes, steering, and suspension from the European M3 CSL ($200,000 dollar M3). It's a $4,000 dollar option here, which is a steal in my opinion. It's supposed to be the best handling M3 ever produced by BMW in the U.S. Here's a link to an overview:
