    Agree naturally! Mine seems to have a baby seat and girlfreind in it though!!! mmm, sure this adds to the power/weight/cow and gate ratio though!

    Will have to allow myself a trip out with weight saving measures in place to see if the old girl (54 plate) has still got it!

    Said measures will consist of removal of baby seat, removal of buggy from boot, removal of loud shreiking noise from rear seat telling me to slow down... blah de blah!

    I thought bmw's where all fast!
    My girlfriend friend bf has a 318ti and he thought it ment turbo injection!
    and said he'll whip mine!
    so i took him for a spin and :-o

    and when i looked up Ti means "touring international" :lol:

    so i can't wait till i drop the bomb on him!

    could off been a standard Cupra Tdi with body kit?

    anyway jenk what response did you expect

    i have the knowelege of what cars will beat mine, so i don't even bother EVo's etc, called respect! and would nether dream posting on a owners car stating my less powerful car killed one of theirs.

    best surpise recently was keeping up with a honda s2000 up to 80 he even gave me a thumbs up bless! very nice car will kill me on a track!

    He clearly is a very bright boy and knows his stuff!

    Would have thought he'd suss it out by the absense of lots of extra pipework under the hood and a hissing/whooshing sound when he drives it!

    Oh, and no, not all BMW's are fast! And if you own a 3 series, BMW actually stands for Breaksdown Most Weekends!!!

    i only wanted to find out if it was someone on here, chill.

    id never heard of one but its something to get round italys taxation laws or somat, by not branding it as an m3 tax was alot cheaper.

    just found this site

    http://www.bimmerforums.com/engine_faq/

    look at the s14 engine this will confirm the italian 320 being basically an m3.
    and ermm id hardly say it was underpowered compared to a cupra.

    Anyhot a leon cupra r is on my list for my next car [B)]

    ok.... other day i was behind a f plate ferrari testorosa (cuse spelling) outside lane of dual carridgeway. we both went for it , it seems, and i actually stayed with him. couldnt believe it.

    then a roundabout appeared and he went round it like straight line..... and that was that.

    was he playing?

    Would imagine he was simply blending as much gas as required to let you stay close-ish witht he intent of fully whooping you after a short distance!

    I would!

    being pedantic, but the E30 M3/320is is lighter than the leon :)

    We're talking E30 here so not really heavy

    I would imagine with that power, it would be a pretty close run thing, over a short run, the rear wheel drive would have a advantage, but over a longer run, the poor E30 areodynamics would count against it, if I remember correctly it had a drag coefficent of 0.37 with 205 section tyres.

    Sneaky italians putting a M3 motor in 320, I like that:D , must be quite a Qcar, does it have the M3 body kit and rims or it is standard looking ?
