The whole m3 vs 335 argument is an exercise in splitting some really long hairs.

Each has a few things it does a little better than the other.
M3 will be a little more entertaining.
335 will be more forgiving when you're stuck in traffic or going on a road trip.

M3 also has the "woot I have an M3" aspect, that the 335 doesn't come with. As is with anything that can double as a status symbol.


Wow. Have you ever driven a 335 or M3?

I have owned both and they are not "a little better than the other" regarding anything. They are WORLDS apart.

Say what you want on which you'd prefer. Certainly, I loved both. But to assert they're a hair's difference in performance and feel is just mind-boggling.
