Stock 335i beats S5 on the track

OK. The 335 wins. The difference is very small, but considering that the 335 does not even have an LSD and much cheaper...its very impressive.

Well, wasn't that expected? It was actually very close. A bit too close considering that from the interior they're world's apart.

Considering the Audi is an Audi and weighs more, has AWD, and realistically only about 20 more hp than the 335, I'd say it did pretty well also. Both are great cars, hard to go wrong with either.

I agree that the Audi looks good, but it seems that they are trying too hard...and the S5 is overpriced IMO.

That S5 just looked like it was having some difficulty through the turns way too much; way too much body roll. Also, it just looks too heavy.

Hope they did not drift the e92 through the track like that and timed it against s5. You loose a lot of speed around corners going sideways.

Not if you do it right.

The 335 also looks like the more fun car tot drive.

+1. Yeah, it looked like the S5 was having some difficulties with body roll on those curves; also, it looks like it's a heavier car than the 335i. I wonder just how many seconds faster a PROcede 335i would be against an S5 in that same race? Maybe not too much faster since even if you get much more power (and speed on the straight-aways), you still have to brake quickly and hard for the next turn.
