I almost got nailed from behind today as I was merging quickly into traffic. It was raining and as I get half way around the corner the FU%$#% traction control shuts everything down as a wheel loses grip. 335is and RS5 are in different leagues. M3 and RS5 perform similarly I believe.

yes to an A5 and no to the s5. took a douchebag in a S5 down screaming at me "YOU DONT WANT IT!" sigh....

for 400 dollars 335 will make 360hp and similar tq. and with a better tq curve, it competes against cars out of its league.

m3 beats the RS5 and has less HP. IMO with some suspension parts, the 335is is a great platform to build on. saving money and having a retrospectively impressive numbers with MINIMAL mods. it can compete against the RS5. (0-60 are identical or very close. 4.6 for rs5 and 4.7 for 335is) stock for stock. 68-70 grand for a rs5. ridiculous.

i dont understand how a car can look so good, but not perform. same for the gran turismo. your paying for looks rather then performance. BUT IT HAS LEDS!!!! omgz
