Times do talk, and the official BMW time on the Nurburgring for the M Roadster is 8:15, the 335i is 8:26.
Who better to tell you which car is faster than the guys who test em on the best circuit in the world daily...not some fat magazine columnists driving the car for the first time.
If you can find any other times that show a stock 335i beating a stock M coupe around a track I'd love to see it. Top Gear was able to lap the M Roadster faster than the Cayman and the M3 CSL...but of course the 335i is faster than the Cayman and the M3 CSL on a track too right?
Oh and guess what...the M Coupe is faster than the M Roadster.
You guys are too funny
