sure if you spend a lot and void your warranty you can make the 335 faster
but hey, you can spend a lot of money and make the 328 faster than the M3 if you wanted to
just cuz you can
doesn't mean you should
and i guarantee you
if money was no object
10/10 would choose the M3
A lot faster with equal drivers. Close to a second faster so not even a comparison there (12.5 - 12.6 vs 13.4). Then again, modding it does not change what a high-performance car is supposed to feel and sound like. Like I mentioned before, the 335 sounds and feels downright boring as hell compared to M3 even after driving the highly tuned 335, it sounded just like any other dime a dozen 3-series. Does not matter even if it can go quicker than a Porsche 911 GT3 997 in a straight line, still it will never ever be able to feel and sound like a GT3. End of story.
Anyone who has the means and enthusiasm will never pick the 335 over M3 10/10. I know atleast 20 335 guys (many of them are on this board) that ditched their 335 the first chance they got to get an M3. Pretty much all of them were unanimous that M3 is just in a different league.
