BMW E46 M3 vs E36 M3 vs M2 Comp: DRAG RACE

On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
Listen up BMW fanboys - you do NOT want to miss this!
We’ve brought together two classic M3s, and they’re going up an M2 Competition! Mat’s sat in the E46, which will put down 340hp & 365Nm thanks to a 3.2-litre straight-six under the bonnet. As for the E36, its 3-litre straight-six engine helps push it to 300hp (thanks in part to some modifications cameraman Jack's added) and 320Nm.
As for the M2 Competition, well it’s clearly the most powerful competitor here, with a 3-litre straight-six twin-turbo 410hp & 550Nm! But what do you think - will the lighter E36 have what it takes? Or will the M2’s pure power advantage lead it to victory? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

  • The van almost beat you on the third go

  • That e36 is not even a proper EU 3.2l spec with 321hp, its a US 3.0l 286hp ... plus engine is bad in this one, real EU spec would perform a looot better fyi :)

  • Congrats to Tommy on his new Truck! He writes, "Hey TFL team! I just wanted to thank you guys for all the awesome content that you guys put out on all of your channels! I recently picked up this 2020 F-150 with the 3.5L Ecoboost and being able to watch your in-depth reviews on every truck was incredibly more helpful than the salesmen at the dealerships. I hope you guys get back on good terms with Ford. You do great things for them! Just wanted to say keep up the great work and keep killing it Andre! Thanks from Chicago, Tommy"

  • I thought the weight of the E46 was just below 1500 kg. 1495 kg 3295.91 lbs. It seems like the M2 doesn't catch with the E46 before it has emptied 3rd gear, + 62mph/100kmh. In real life on the streets, the E46 has a much better usable power band.
