335ic vs other cars

im posting this in the OT forum because im sure some of it has been asked before and it will probably be less annoying in here

ok so 5-6 months from now ill be getting a new car, up until now i have been looking at a 350z or a g35 coupe, i had originally dismissed the 335i because all i did was quickly glance at it saw 10k larger price tag for the same hp, but i have looked closer now and come to realize what an amazing engine it has that torque curve is , onto the questions

first i think all three of the mentioned cars are sexy as hell, and stock performance wise they all seem to be about the same (with the bmw being a bit faster) but besides that what are some other benifits to the BMW, that service plan is pretty nice (does that include brake changes?)

i also see that the 335i has DSC which is similar to the VDC on the nissan/infiniti, how intrusive is it on the BMW, can you totally disengage it?

is there a diffrence in the seats that coem with the sport package? if so anyone have picutres of the normal vs sport seats?

also since the 5-6 months before i get a new car is not by choice i will probably go in and order one if i ultimatly decide to get one, so i get exactly the color/options i want (and no !@$@$#@!$ miles on it) about how long does that take?

also feel free to fanboi the 335i up all you want

ok well the bimmer is just plain better then the 2 other cars not only because its a BMW, lol actually no its because its a BMW comon! the dsc can be turned of but its nice for hitting curves at high speed... u better get sports package because its just plain awsome and the seats are more comfortable (i dont have pics but they are around) ... and to order a car it takes around 2 months all ull need to give a 1000$ deposit to send them to make it which is pretty good... btw im no expert so im sure lots of others on this forums will help u better =) good luck

The time frame depends on if your dealer has a available production slot. For example, We ordered our m6 vert around october 16 and are finally picking it up this friday. Around 2 months which I think is around the norm. My cousin has a g35 and it just feels cheap to me compared to the 3 series models. I would go for the 335i without a doubt. Btw they took off the ci or ic designation so its referred to as e92 335, just helpin you out. Good luck and post pictures as soon as you get it in 5 months!

yea i know about the c designation but i wanted to specify the coupe without actually typing it, whats the sedan refered to as? i wish there was a way to get it sooner than 5 months, but i dont think theres anyone willing to give me a 6 month loan w/o any sort of credit, any verifyable income, or even any sort of proof that i could pay it off in full in 6 months <_<, wish i could use my current car to set up some sort of extreme 6 month baloon payment
