The biggest problem (for me) is the engine has no soul.
the term Sportscar does not necessarily refer to a car with lot of HP/TQ. It needs something more. It's not easy to explain, what exactly - performance? YES. Torque? Yes. Transmission? Yes. Suspension? Yes. Wheels & Tires? Yes + all of this and more complementing each other, packed in a nice package. Now dont get me wrong, nuthing against 335d, it's a really comfortable long distance cruiser, but chipped or not, it's far from a sportscar. That's not dishonesting it, no way, it's just a fact. In fact the 335i also isn't a sportscar, but supported with a few mods it's really close, closer like the 335d.
