400HP ain't really that much, it's only about 335 RWHP, which is about the same as a N54 engine with a JB+ ($200 dollar mod)

**ultimate is subjective so in this case we mean with comfy leather and a fairly soft suspension, not necessarily a track performer that may from time to time overheat when pushed too hard along with blowing a high pressure fuel pump randomly for no apparent reason with no fix on the horizon -here is your extended warranty, thank you.**

No matter how shitty the interior is it still sucks to get beat by something you consider inferior. Oh and all the 335i fanboys what will you do when your 100K (cough laugh) hpfp warranty goes out? Don't shoot the messenger, I've owned two 335i's I just got tired of going in for new fuel pumps.

I'll be looking good and hard at migrating from my 1er to a 2011/2012 Mustang GT with goodies. So long as its not over $45000. I couldn't live with myself spending that much money for such a mediocre interior. I hate Ford steering wheel design.

I'm sure after a year there will be all sorts of supercharger, turbo, cam options for the new 5L mustang engine.
i fully agree: i hate comparing stock vs modded. compare apples to apples, this is the first time i have ever modded a car...i feel like the majority dont touch anything,

the 2010 is drastically different from the 2009. The 2010 was more then a refresh and was a huge step and the 2011 will be a complete makeover. so really so really 2011 is only 1 year old..

I don't know why everyone on here is such a tool all the modded x35i arguments come down to "My car is faster in a straight line modded than (insert stock car)". If you want a fast unrefined POS that goes fast in a straight line, and don't care about the crappy fit and finish and garbage interior buy a domestic like the mustang. If you want a well refined car that had a nice interior, looks better, and doesn't sound like a 50 year old car, buy a BMW. A BMW might not be as fast stock in a straight line, but your driving a much nicer and better designed car.

I'll buy the upgraded HPFP that comes with a lifetime warranty when upgrading the turbos

Candidate for one of the most ignorant posts ever.

You obviously don't understand the point of Mustangs. You really need to check out the '10s and update your knowledge. I'd rather have a Mustang GT with a few mods for the price of a 135i with ZSP/ZPP. Then again, I've actually driven them, given them a chance, and figured out what driving a Mustang is all about.

This doesn't count some, but most of the BMW community is filled with ignorant, insecure, need a badge to make themselves feel like they matter douche bags that don't even belong in a nice car and probably can't drive to save their life on a track but it's ok because they can PAY to make it LOOK like they know what they're talking about.

Comon everyone enough.. Not every thread that mentions a BMW in the off topic section means time to bash on whoever drives a BMW. DOUCHEBAG, FAGGET, PIECE OF SHIT, SCHMUCK, DICK FACE, BRAND WHORE. Like really enough. The only reason i made the comparison is because the 335i with a simple bolt on is pretty strong lets be honest. In no way shape or form do I think the 335i is god. I just think they are both different cars that take a whole different approach on being performance cars ,and i thought it would be a cool comparison to see these two go at it. How do you think Motor Trend, Car and Driver, Road & Track keep consumers buying there magazines? By maybe reviewing cars, and putting together unique little tests so see how various cars do against one another? Can't we all just get along?
