Or the hate from people who don't own M3s coming to a M3 enthusiast forum and trashing M3s and M3 owners.

lets ignore that the M losses to its competators from America and Japan, and we'll move past the 335i being a much better value.

In terms of a pure "daily driver" then yes I would say the 335 or even 328 is "better" than the M3.....its far cheaper, is more comfortable, gets better mileage and blends in better than an M3.....

M3's are more than a car.......a cars appeal is more than the numbers it can produce on a test track or dyno..... an M3 is a "drivers" car.....it is an instrument the driver utilizes to extract maximum pleasure from the road..... Its not about getting where you need to go...its about the smile on your face when you get there!

Drawbacks?

-It's ugly
-It's slow
-It understeers like a mofo
-It's a horrible value
-It's not practical
-The gearbox sucks
-It only has 7 gears for DCT
-The brakes suck
-Everything sucks






















I'm completely j/k.

I am not convinced that a 335 (at least one with Sport Package and RFTs is more comfortable than an M3. From what I gather the M3 is better at handling rough road surfaces than the 335i.

I can't understand why anyone would want a softer ride than the M3's "Comfort" mode.

I think the M3 is a fantastic car, the only draw back for me is.

1. Car needs 470 hp and 400 lbs or torque.
2. Brakes need to be more fade resistant.

then I'd be in one.

The hp and brakes are doable, but I'm not so sure about the torque, unless add pressure.

Brakes can be upgraded to any good BBK and problem is solved. It's possible to get an S/C to get to that PEAK horsepower level, but the TQ is a problem, even with the S/C.
