It's not a stat I care about but with practice and better conditions I could have produced some consistent 3.7- 3.9's easily.

On my 335 (tune, meth, LSD) I did it a few times and started in the 4.2 to 4.3 range starting in 2nd gear (6AT) and after lots of practice got consistent 3.8's with a best of 3.5 (also slightly uphill).

All tests with the M3 and 335 were done on factory tires at normal PSI on desolate city streets.
So you're saying the 335 with the right tunes is the same as M3? Why even get M3 then? A 335is owner told me "it's basically an M3 for much cheaper."

If I can save 30k on a 335is and still hit 3.5's I'd be happy with that. Main reason is I hate the simple interior of the M3, doesn't look luxurious at all, cheap bastards.
