some questions.

hi guys,

i have a firend that just doesnt believe that i poped an E36M3, he thinks he knows more about BMWs then me, and im no expert so im starting to doubt ifi know anything at all... this is what i mean..

am i correct in saying that version has about 200whp or slightly more? Also the new ones have about 285whp do they not?

Well anyway please correct me if im wrong

HP lost from engine to wheels is at least 15%, so the E36 M3 with around 204hp more or less would be most accurate

thats quite a bit tho. Lose a bit of weight on that car and it should move decently, well not that it doesnt anyway.

that's really just average, some cars lose a lot more, my old Lexus LS400 had 250hp at the crank, dyno testing it was about 200rwhp, but I remember an article about the old Mustang SVT Cobra R which had 385hp crank, when they put it on the dyno it came out to be 365rwhp, that's way less than 15%, but it is rare to find less than 15% HP lost on most cars
