NICE...... About what I expected....but I did think the extra torque of the 335 would give it a small lead that the M3 would erase later on..... An off the line drag would be interesting too...but I would guess the 335 is harder to launch.....

Better yet, why don't we slap a supercharger kit on the M3 and then see? Remember SC CSL on the Ring?

Will you guys ever stop with this BS and just enjoy your cars?

I always think that its not fair to compare a moded and stock car, i mean 335 is a great car, but M3 its just....sick.

Come on Lucid, you know our M3's can't keep up with the fastest and best car in the world, the 335i. Remeber, we are the idiots who paid more money for a slower car, we weren't smart like the guys who bought the 335is who for a small amount of money could just modd their car to elite levels of performance......

I would be interested to see the V3 tuned 335 against an M3. Either way, I am M3 all of the way.

Does anybody roughly know the tourque and WHP of the V1 335 in the video?

Look who's talking?!?

Why are you such a hater?

It looks like the M3 only started pulling somewhere over 100mph. So beind dead even up to 100mph with the old V1, against a car that is 20k more expensive, I'd say it's pretty damn good.

And I have a friend who has a modded Supra turbo that would woop a V3 335i all day long, that is also half the cost of a 335i.

What is your point?

You wanna tell that to the 335 I was lapping like crazy a few weeks back. He would disappear in no time from my mirrors the second I would pass him each time. He could have had a V4, 5, 6, 7, etc, and the outcome would have been the same...

335 is a daily commuter. It's an amazingly inspiring, back crushing torquey commuter... The M3 is a true performance car - it captures the feeling of riding a mechanical bull, offering the experienced rider high adrenaline returns, and saving the face-first trip to the safety mat.

I have not made any dyno, but i guess app. 360-370 whp.
I have been racing with both the new M3 and tuned 335 cars, the biggest difference between a tuned 335 and the M3 is the torque.
The 335 makes a big jump at low rpm, it looks like a false start but it is actually the difference in the powerband.
The M3 is losing against a V3 in a straight line with app 3-5 cl mostly because of the lack of torque at low rpm, in high speed (above 200km/h) the m3 probably is faster.

the M3 is not all about straight line acceleration - there's much more to it.

I agree, but i belive the future of the M cars is turbo, less fuel consumption and more torque.

I don't think the M will ever have a turbo according to BMW's M philosophy. I could be wrong.

You must have raced a stock 335 while the driver was DUI. Shame!

I hope to run into an M3 someday. I was already dead even with an E60 M5 up to 100mph.
