it sure is fast and i do hope u gave it a good punch and see what 500nm feels compared to the 400nm on the m3. a stock 335 engine boost about 8.3 psi, whereas the alpina boost 16 psi. when a stock 335 gets a vishu chip or jb3, the boost is set to around 13 psi and the car would reach about 390 hp or even 420 with some high flow exhaust and intake. the alpina with 16 psi can easily get hp with just high flow intake and exhaust.

congradz on the e90 m3, i really wanted that instead of the coupe. reminds me of the e39 m5 which still is my favorite m car of all time.
