In my mind BMWs aren't about straight line speed. It's the whole package that makes a BMW a BMW, to include acceleration, braking, and handling (just to name a few). I really don't care if some dude in a 335 can beat me off the line, because unless he's poored some serious dough into his car (and voided his warranty), I'm going to beat him at a real racetrack, that's the kind with multiple left and right corners with my stock M3.
