you have to be 30 for the ultimate drive??

so i am 25. i just tried to register for the ultimate drive and apparently you have to be 30 to drive the m3 and b7.

my car is fast than those are and i really wanted to compare the M to my car

sucks to all the kids who ruined this event for me >: (

Why do you want to compare when you already stated that your car is faster??

because faster does not equal better. because i dont own a vette by choice

maybe i should have used the words: "more powerful" than "faster" because under 25's can drive a z4 coupe but not 5 series sedan...

Personally I would rather drive an M Coupe than a 5 series. It is more fun

what does it mean -- faster?
0-30.
Since for sure you cannot do better than 4.3 0-60...

"faster" means "The 335 superiority complex"

Many people have come down with this "disorder".

I'm over 25 but not 30 yet, and I drove the M3, 650, 550, etc. I thought the age limit was 25? BTW, they don't really check your age. They do glance at your driver's license, but I think they are probably more concerned if you have a valid license. As long as you don't look, act, and dress like a 17 year old, you should be ok.

Go and test drive the manual z4. $30 says you like it more than your 335 even though it's slower.

+1. Faster does not always mean funner. I love my 335, but one of the funnest cars I've ever owned/driven was a Toyota MR2 Spider. The thing really wasn't fast at all (I recall it only had like 150-160 hp), but it was so light and nimble and handled so great (the driver's seat was essentially located in the middle-left of the car) that it was a blast to drive around town.

I love that you use the 'words' Funner and Funnest

Haven't heard those in ages!

picture this 2 cars both 0-60 4.8!!! think of them as a subaru sti and a e92 335...well do you think the suspension, chassis, engine, weight balance, aero, exhaust note, turbo spool, turbo lag, other general noise, optimum shift points..hell i didn't even mention one's a coupe and ones a 4dr and the differences are huge..ones a twin turbo 6 and ones a flat single turbo 4 banger.the sti sounds so loud and annoying because of super thin glass and crappy frame less windows esp compared to the e92. hell the difference between driving an e92 and an e90 are big on the road and track...there are millions of different variables to achieve the speed the way the car does...and this was between 2 car with forced induction!!!

imagine taking an NA up against a FI car.. again both with 300hp differences are huge!!!! it is not the top speed or the times...it's how it gets you there!! how does the car feel braking, accelerating, and cornering. is it spooling or is it a v8 snarl!!!

so do you see why now?

ive driven the z4 coupe. it was a blast... thats exactly my point though. you can do more damage in a z4 than a 550i yet the 550i has an age limit

but either way i stil might take my proceded 335i with forged wheels, better tires, coilovers and sways front and rear lol. i was really looking forward to seeing what the e92 m3 was all about

They never have any of the M cars at the east half of the Ultimate Drive. I was 24 last year and wasn't able to drive any of the "higher end" cars so I asked to take one of the dealerships Z4 M Coupes for a test drive with my fiance'. Surprisingly enough, they said ok. It was a great hour of driving. Nate
