ive driven the z4 coupe. it was a blast... thats exactly my point though. you can do more damage in a z4 than a 550i yet the 550i has an age limit
but either way i stil might take my proceded 335i with forged wheels, better tires, coilovers and sways front and rear lol. i was really looking forward to seeing what the e92 m3 was all about

imagine taking an NA up against a FI car.. again both with 300hp differences are huge!!!! it is not the top speed or the times...it's how it gets you there!! how does the car feel braking, accelerating, and cornering. is it spooling or is it a v8 snarl!!!
so do you see why now?
^^what he said, thanks for explaining it better
