I had a E90 335i with bolt on + V3, now I have a E92 M3 with Dinan intake/ecu/suspension/akrapovic evo and i havn't looked back

Even when both the car was stock, my 335i felt a bit stronger low end.
But 335i had 300lb/ft and M3 has 295lb/ft so its actually pretty similiar.

In the end its just crank torque though, what matters is after the transmission multiplies it and put it to the ground.

Problem with the M3 i think is it just dosnt feel very fast but I ran against my buddy's c63 and I pull 1-2 car length on him no problem, but his car felt quite a bit faster.

I just tell myself I have a fast car that feel like a slow car nowadays ...

Actually in a perfect world, I would have a 335i for daily and the m3 for the weekender but I dont mind daily driving the m3 at all! once I got used to it, i didnt complain about the lack of torque and grew to love high revving na... to bad its the end for those breed of motors
