woww....BMW knew what they were doing...screw the 335 and 135...if i had the cash i would go for the ///M....its the COMPLETE package.


BTW notice the squeeky brakes at the end of the video, he must have really torn the car up OR they have some real high performance racing pads on...

they just said 0-62 in 4.8. a 335 does 0-60 in 4.8-9. does that mean that the 335 can still be almost as fast until the triple digits? that is very interesting........ and a proceded 335 is runnin 4.5. coupe numbers btw

BMW hasn't let any reviews release tested 0-60 times on the car. Every review says 4.8 cuz that's what BMW tells them, and it's a lie. The car will be at least 4.6. (But really, how much doe these tenths when talking about 0-60 actually matter?)

I love high-revving NA M engines...the sound...all of it. This has been one of the most positive previews of the car so far!

+1. Also the M3 will handle waaaay better than a 335i so on a track, the 335i will post much slower times than an M3.

The only thing it seems to suffer from is not effectively putting the power down... Correct me if I am wrong, but the M3 runs the same WIDTH tires as all sport E9x's with a staggered setup.

225/255 just doesnt seem like enough rubber for a car putting down that much power...

245 front/ 265 rear. Don't know if that's enough for you?

Are you talking about the M3? They haven't released pricing yet for the USA.
