and SLk55's will eat 335's like me eating $1 double cheeseburgers.
Don't have any slalom numbers, but the SLK55 weighs about 150-200lbs less, and has more power so it should handle better. It takes longer to stop though.

Not from my experience. I've driven my mom's car very hard and I feel like the reviewers exaggerate the "uncontrollable" behavior. Maybe I haven't driven an M3 hard enough to compare, but in comparison to my 335i, it's just as good if not better.

Hence i bought an m3 . One thing thats clear is M3 owners had a CHOICE to not buy a 335. Mainly because we like the fact BMW puts a clear difference between M's and just another regular Bimmer .
