Saying that 5.0s will out launch a 335i is too generic of a comment. None of it means anything until you heads up race them from a dig. I guarantee for every 5.0 that beat a 335i from a dig, there is a 335i that beat a 5.0 from a dig. Don't get me wrong, like I stated in my first post, the 5.0 is impressive. But guess what, so is the 335i. It's preference at this point. Either way, I hope to see some stock or near stock 5.0s in the 12s next time I'm at the track. Maybe every single 6.0 GTO, 5.0 mustang and camaro Ss I've seen running 12.8-14.0 completely sucked ass at driving? but I doubt that lol.
You see what I sell vs what I drive. I love the mustang, love the overall refinement of the BMW more.
