However I like the 335i because it is smaller and more agile. Once I go back to Buttonwillow I will see how the times compare to my last M5 and Audi R8 V10 runs. It's not quite the fun you have with an E60 M5 of course, but it would be my second choice.
Since I haven't had a Bimmer (in the US at least) for about 2 years (except for a 335is test car for 2 weeks) I really missed it, and I am more than happy to have a E90 335i now.
