was heading back from the beach and came across a new 335i coupe. He was moving pretty quick, so I hopped in behind him and we were cruising for a few minutes. He finally slowed down enough, around 70mph and I got next to him on the hwy. I popped a rev then downshifted, he punched it and I followed suit.
I had about half a length on him at the end of third. and had a couple car lengths by the end of 4th.
It was a fun run. Those new beamers are pretty quick.

Yeah, from my experiences, "car guys" that buy bmw's tend to be much cooler than your average schmuck of a BMW owner. But then again, I've met my share of dbag mustang owners too. There are some in every group.
Not in my neck of the woods in general. Also its the F150 diesels with little or no muffler who think they have a race car, and before anybody says anything I got waxed on a track by a diesel pickup in my 06 gt
um, it's red.....hey I just got it, gimme a chance
yeah tons of them around here too buster... there was one guy here locally that was too slow 'mentally' to comprehend his high 11 second diesel trapping 106mph probably shouldn't mess with 'faster' cars away from the track. From a dig he would have destroyed me...but instead he chose to 'smoke me' from a high roll... his face was priceless as I was going around him. haha
Wifes cousin recently got a '13 335i with X-Drive (I dont know if they are all AWD or not) and while its not anything ridiculous, it launched pretty hard and pulled strong enough to surprise me in the backseat with 3 people in the car. I could see it being a solid 13 flat car, maybe quicker in good air.a
The 335/135 models are quick from a stop. The turbo is setup so the engine hits peak torque at around 1,200rpm and holds it flat all the way out. Very similar power curves to an electric motor. As a result their engines perform similar to engines with more horsepower.
I think the engines are largely the same as when they were first introduced. They're extremely efficient over a very wide rpm range.
Who cares how much horsepower it has, all that matters is how fast it goes!
Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
