335xi -> M3

Well, where should I start
Amazingly my new M3 Coupe is way more comfortable for daily driving.
My 335xi had a full Sport M-package. It felt much more "abrupt",
kind of "rough". M3 is way more sure of herself, if you know what I mean.
More powerful, way more solid while accelerating. The power is more
pronounced. The suspension is a perfect balance of stability, sport
and comfort. You feel the road way more precisely although it feels
more comfortable in the same time. Really hard to explain.
M3 kind of has a feel of my previous 550i, but in a more compact, sporty
package. Such a joy. Just drove on PCH, a great sunset.
Such a wonderful car

I know what u mean When u say the m is more comfortable. The steering isn't as stiff, the seats and leather are way nicer on your bottom. The steering wheel is a pleasure to hold.

I came from a e90 335i and for the record, I hated that car.

Not sure if that was you but I think I saw a car like that the other morning on 190th x PCH around 7:35AM. Congrats on the new car!

I guess I'm one of the few that wanted a 335i after buying the m3. I feel the opposite in regards to the comfort. My 335, also m sport, is far more comfortable than the m3 to me. The ride is less jarring but of course it doesn't handle as well as the m3. Every other week when I switch back to the 335 I appreciate the comfort and quietness but then can't wait for the week to be over to get back into the m3

Everytime I drive my wife's 335xi, I love my M3 even more.

PCH + M3 = WIN!

It's on the top of my bucket list. Next to doing the 'Ring.
