This is will be a tough choice, both the BMW M3 Coupe and the all new 335i, twin-turbo, 300 ponies, are great cars. Both enginees are amazing, and it will be difficult to make a decision between them.
Here is a technical breakdown:
The 335i with ProXede(modded) can put out 430 HP and weighs 1623 Kg
The M3 puts out 420 HP and weighs 1655 Kg
So basically the M3 weight more and has less power and a LOT less torque. Hmm interesting….
Oh but of course… the added $15k goes into all the M badges, bragging rights, the “powerdome”, the “individual” colors only available to M, the extra buttons “confort, sport, etc” you have to setup for your personal preference, the extra 2 or 4 speakers as if having 14 speakers wasn’t ridiculous enough… mmmmkay?
Oh yes, and the “M-lock”: because driving in twisty US highways is really really demanding…
What you really will get with all those M badges and domes and lips is the cops on your arse. Then they will ticket you until you loose your licence and then you will get to enjoy your M3 inside your garage.
So what do you guys think? Let’s hear it.
