vs bmw z3 m coupe?

Anyone know much about the BMW Z3 M Coupe? It looks like a Z3 station wagon.... Much faster than a V6 Camaro? Could the stock SS take it?

just curious.

SS all the way. I beleive that model recieved a detuned version of the E46 M3 engine. Coming from an E46 M3, the SS has the upper hand.

Close power to the V6 camaro weighing in at 3000 pounds. Should slaughter a stock V6.

Dude are you serious another BMW question WTF!!! A BMW Z3 should compete with a Honda civic Coupe SI !!! Camaros are in different class! My wife drives a Suburban and would run over a Z3!!!

Dont even question a SS!!! You need to hang out with my bro, your question went from stupid to absurd!

When ever you think a SS would loose to any BMW you need punish yourself for even thinking of that thought!


CHEVY BMW

Dude are serious another person who thinks the Camaro SS can't be beat. The M3, M5, M6, X5M, and X6M will smoke the Camaro SS.

The one with the S54 E46 M3 detuned motor could be a handfull against a stock SS but still not faster. The 2000 model lapped the Nurburgring only 2 seconds slower than the SS. What year was you thinking of. The earlier years are a joke.

And oh, M3s aren't that fast, I drove one and raced a few sometimes they beat me sometimes me them. M5s and M6s are faster than stock SS. Don't forget our SS have a bunch of stupid issues that makes them slower, but once the kinks are taken care of things change.

In order for you wife's suburban to run over a Z3 M coupe it would have to be able to keep up with it first.

Trust me I was surprised as you were and he was definitely on it because at the next light he looked pissed as hell and asked if I had the V8. Then he put about 2 bus lengths on me from a dig.

They have no top end at all. After witnessing it firsthand all my money would be on a manual V6 from a 80+ roll, and Id make money.

He was probably pissed that he bought such an ugly car in the first place.
