Honestly, I dont care about all out straight line performance.

Again, and this is the bottom line, the M3 is the whole package perfected by BMW engineers. Representing there very best in M performance engineering.
Thats what I am paying for.

If I didnt have the money for the M3 then I know I would be happy with a 335i .

Yes but your comparing 2 completely different worlds. I'm taking about 2 cars with the same basic chassis,styling, look and body, developed within 6 months of eachother- from the same company out of the same factory developed by engineers that make the same cars.
Thats an 18 year old car your talking about.
