Hell, the e46 was getting a little on the BIG side, the e90 is just too large for sportiness. It's too long and elegant.
Learn what the BMW engineers put into this car, both in design and performance before you think the 335i is a big brother to this smaller beasty! There not even the same car when it comes to handling. The first clue is the 6-pot Brembos up front... the 335i doesn't even offer this.
Some of you need to get a clue and READ..!
I believe you may be the one who needs to "get a clue and read" unless you believe that a car with a shorter stouter wheelbase and a higher center of gravity is going to handle better. Shorter wheel bases will turn in faster, but unless the are considerably lighter or lower they will handle worse.
