Performance predictions - F80 M3

As pretty much everyone here knows, Car and Driver just recently tested the F10 M5 and obtained the following results:

0-60: 3.7 seconds (I assume with 1ft rollout)
1/4 mile: 12.0 @ 122 mph

That being said, assuming an F80 M3 with 450-465 hp and 3600-3650lb weight, what are everyone's predictions in terms of acceleration (I believe the slalom/skidpad will be better, with slightly less weight and wider track than E90)?

I'm thinking, since C&D got 3.9 seconds 0-60 and 12.4 quarter mile @114 with the ZCP E92, the F80 should be at least slightly faster - however, we also know that BMW in the past did not want the M3 to be quite as fast as an M5 in straight-line acceleration.


0-60: 3.8 seconds (with 1ft rollout)
1/4 mile: 12.1-12.2 seconds @119-120 mph?
