your arguement hinges on the fact that many people are getting the 335i bc they cant afford the M3. this just isnt true. i could super easily afford an M3 or a more expensive car, but i decided that the 335 w procede is plenty of car for someone in my position who doesnt really plan on seriously tracking my car. a few extra horses and a CF roof are great, but unless a loaded M3 comes out at under say, $62k, its overpriced and not worth it to me.

im sure it will be a phenomenal car, but for a similar price premium (about 16-23k more than a 335i most likely when loaded out), i would rather jump up a similar or lesser amount once more and get an M5.
335i space, coral/gray poplar, step, loaded, but with no AS, AC or rear shade. Front lip painted and installed and springs going on this week. pics coming soon.
