MOTOR Mag PCOTY Round 1

E92 335i takes fourth spot after 3.RS4 cabriolet (!), 2. Boxster S and 1. Z4M. Not too bad in this company I guess.
Beats Merc ML63, Jeep SRT8 (how did they get in PCOTY for heaven's sake ???), and TT V6.

They like the engine, steering, chassis balance. They don't like the "unsettled", "brittle" ride, which they blame on the RFT's of course. Performance figures match BMW's claimed 0-100k in 5.5 sec precisely.

If you are upset with MOTOR about being beaten by the three cars above, you'll be more upset to learn this is just a semi final, with two more semis to go. MOTOR's trick tactic to drag things out and keep us dumb readers buying more and more copies till we get to the glorious finale!
