Heres a quote from August 07 C&D about the 335i vs Z4M at the track.

Quote:
Between the two, you'd expect the 335i to be more supple over bumps, have vastly more interior room, and be as refined as a Lexus. But what floored us was that the 335i's best lap (3:10.5) was 1.2 seconds quicker than the M coupe's. it's a case of neutral handling over outright speed. Whereas the M coupe had understeer at the turn-in that switched to oversteer at the exit, the 335i was nearly perfectly balanced everywhere and made up most of its time in the region between teh braking zone and turn apex. The 335i does everything remarkably well, which is why many of us at Car and Driver think it's the best all around car in the world.
yet another M that the 335i destroys for thousands less = \

i wouldnt go so far as to say "yet another M", or "destroyed" but apparently the 335 does hold its own against M cars, and in certain cases, such as VIR, is better suited.
