Nice car!!!

All M3's (E46) have the same power. Euro cars are measured in DIN horsepower and North American cars are measured in SAE corrected horsepower.

If you do the conversion factor for the SAE into DIN, the North American car also has 343 hp, and if you convert the Euro DIN HP rating to North American SAE rating, you get 333 hp.

Its just a different way of measuring.

P.S. That car is amazing. I love Ti Silver!
