What?!?

Track testing is vital for development of cars like 335, S4, etc.

Shortcomings on the track often translate into weaknesses for enthusiast driving on street/twisties.

Really? Try re-reading what my quote was in response to. The quote was stating that the S5 has similar performace which it does not.

How could you possibly think track performance is useless information in a car that is a performance sedan?

WOW...my point was that the S5 has very similar performance figures as the 335i. They are very comparable and the S5 has (in my opinion) a better exterior and interior.

I think the 335i is a fantastic car all around, I'm just saying that I think the S5 is nicer. Also, to restate, I think the 335i is still a better car than the S4, EVEN THOUGH track performance is slighted towards the S4!!!

Isn't that crazy???

Get an //M. For the price of an S5, you're not that far off. The M is infinitely better than the S5 on the road and track.

Then again, you probably don't like the looks of the M, so go with the S5.

My cousin got the new M3 when it came out. When I look at that rear I get the chills. I'd take the M3 over a fully modded 335 anyday.

Retarded assumption?

You know when I said //M I was talking the M3 right? Not M-sport.

You already stated you think the S5 looks better than the 335. M3 isn't all that different in the looks department.

So I'd still say I made the right assumption, yes? Based on what you said.

No sir.

Yes there is a difference in looks between the m3 and the 335 AND most importantly a big difference in driving experience.

Cosmetic stuff, is cosmetic. (Bumper, side-skirts, hood,....) So you jizz seeing the m3 rear? Get a quad exhaust set-up and a badass diffuser on your 335 and there you go.

Now it's looks better to you than the S5. And Look, it can probably be done for cheaper than buying a new M3 or an S5.

That's a win.

The M3 still has superior handling and power to the other three cars.

That was my point - they don't.

I do agree with you on the cosmetics/comfort though.

S4 has better performance figures than 335 - FACT.

335 has better performance figures than S5 - FACT.

There's more than just numbers and all three of these cars are a hair away from each other in terms of performance stats.

Yet again.... M3 > S5 > 335i > S4 in my opinion.
