I to test drove the IS350...I pulled out of the lot and floored...and boy!! got the f*#@ up!! Torque and all that. I was impressed. But after a few minutes, it seemed to be a bit...hmm...souless. Too 'digital.'

But then I drove the 335i, and honestly, it reminded me of a precision muscle car. Brute-in-a-suit. Its performance seem to flow and buzz like a living breathing acoustic thing.

That did it for me. Got off topic a bit. Thanks for letting me wax a bit

P.S. Too bad you can't measure it with one number -- even a single Torque number doesn't tell the 335i's true story...
