Exactly what were you expecting? It already eclipses its predecessor in every possible way except weight. You should know by now that there is a lot more to a car than just numbers. Maybe you can match or even surpass the M3 performance with your piecemeal 335 for less money. As far as the driving experience, I'm going to go ahead and trust the BMW engineers and get a complete car from the factory. The 335 is no doubt a great car but you're trying a little too hard here.
