Congrats, you've scoured the net for the one time that helps your point versus the countless others that state the opposite. That's also a 2008 vehicle and if you read/trust reviews of those vintage cars, you'll find the 335i heavily favored. Here's one to get you started.

22% advantage in straight line speed? They are head to head on the quarter mile...
If you can't win an argument based on facts then just kick the ball into the woods, right? I'm talking very specifically about two vehicles and it comes down to simple math.

I even got dusted by a slightly modded CRX bucket that has 100+ less horsepower than my car on Thunderhill.
You guys are really having a tough time with this. Let's take the Lotus Exige for a moment to help illustrate my point. The 2006 and 2007 are nearly identical in every aspect except for the addition of a supercharger and thus 30 more hp in the 2007. Did that car suddenly get downgraded in terms or performance? No. The times improved and it separated the two by that much more.

This is a similar case with the 335i vs IS350. The advantage in handling is so slight that I really can not understand how you guys can say the IS350 is a better all around performer. Since you've spent time on a track, you should also know that speed will be the differentiating factor in two cars with comparable handling.
