Well, that is no fun, i'm sorry you dont like the operating system that's in your 335. =(

I'm still interested to see what's new in the updated I-Drive.

Yes, exactly what I said I meant. Also I explained in the post after why I though the interior was better excluding these three major parts.

I could care less about I-drive/ MMI....or whatever. Tech's cool and all but it's just not a big deal to me. If it was I would have saved $$ on my 335 and gone with a loaded G37S or something. Japanese cars always have cool tech. Too bad the G just can't even compare to the driving experience I get with my 335.

S5 coupe is definitely a looker. Honestly, if I wasn't in a bimmer my second choice would probably be an Audi. Definitely Audi over Merc, unless we're talking a CLK black series or a serious AMG. I love the Audi seats.

I'm sure I've said things that have made me look like a BMW fanboy, and I'm not denying I am one.......After all we are on a bimmer forum

Interior IS better than ours.
Exterior is great (especially the lights of course)
Handling was fantastic, no wheelspin in light rain.
Braking and steering were tight.

Felt slow but definitely wasn't according to speedometer.

Don't like the seats.
Don't like the actual stick shift.
Don't like the steering wheel.

Combine these two cars and I'll be

I agree on the interior bit 100%.

The exterior I think ours is better.

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.

Good job with the retarded assumption though.

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.
