The 2011 BMW M3 is a noisy, quick car out of the box, but what if you wanted more?

Not only is the E90/E92/E93 BMW M3 the ONLY M3 ever sold with a V8, it also marked the end of an era; The last M3 with a naturally-aspirated engine. The 4.4-liter V8 engine made 414HP (more with certain packages) at 8300RPM and 295LB-FT at 3900RPM. It was an increase of nearly 100HP from the E46 M3 that preceded it. The car that followed, the F80 M3, had a turbocharged inline-6; more torque but less noise.

The Competition package (previously called ZCP) improved the handling: The ride height was lowered, recalibrated Electronic Dampers, sport mode active suspension, different wheels,a and the stability control got a new 'M' mode.
