I agree but I even prefer the 'usable speed' of, say 50 - 80 or 100 mph. I absolutely love my 335d on this basis, whereas in my M3 I have to work it more.
And the M3 I believe carries some competitive speed at higher speeds vs the 911. I'm always impressed w/ the pull from 100 - 155 mph in the ///M.
