Have to disagree... the purpose of the E90 335i is not to be a drag race monster. BMW had several other priorities when making this car. Take these two to the track and see what happens? You can't compare two cars at a price point when they were both made for two ENTIRELY different reasons.

But for some reason we compare the two...

As a track car, the current Boss 302 and the $15K more expensive M3 run neck and neck in all aspects of performance.

PREACHHHHHH

Ive been schooled by mustangs....cobra mustangs... i mean single turbo cobra mustangs...with 800HP. didnt even stand a chance

im happy other car forums know that 335's are quite the little rocket. how often do you see cars that with a simple tune can change the car so dramatically, id say only a handful. most tunes for other cars add 20-40 max.

Good points, efthree and hickory.. The price point difference is a factor to consider, but I feel the BMW's interior quality and the dead cows make up for the good portion of the price delta. The remaining price delta is the cost of entry into a BMW versus a Ford, and what I understand to be slightly better handling.

Personally I respect Ford very much and the current gen Mustang 5.0 GT. That was the only alternative when I was looking for my E92 last year. The two big reasons I didn't go the Ford route was - the 5.0 GT was less than a model year old, which means gremlins and bugs. Also, what I see as poor interiors - where I spend 90% the time I'm around my car.

I would be interested in any car that benchmarks the E92 M3 and pulls it off well at a good price point. The next-gen Mustang speculations/renderings are already out and IMO it looks too swoopy and artsy.. I'm waiting and watching..

I just don't understand the whole interior thing. The Mustang interior and the BMW are not THAT far apart; not $15K apart at least. When you get an M3 or a Boss 302, you get the car to actually appreciate the WAY it drives not the way the leather seats smell and kiss your ass.

Im pretty sure that no car forum would be talking about a 335i these days. Back in 2009 things were different. 335i is now outdated.

Funny story when a Mustang tried racing me on the freeway...I think it was the older v6 like '05 so no biggy. He honked the horn 3 times and we took off...kind of..well he took off. I was in manual shifting mode and when I hit redline, I up-shifted but the computer also did it at the same time so I went from 2nd gear and it jumped to 4th so my car went no where. Well it was quite embarrassing. Since then I learned to shift no more than like 6500 RPM and from a full stop it's actually quicker to leave it in DS and let the computer do all the shifting. Downside is you never know if its in M1 or M2 while at a stop in DS mode.

Had it been a Mustang 5.0L 412HP 2011+, it would have never happened.

As it's a thread from 2009, I certainly hope no one does that. It would look like immature gloating even if the thread were current.

Frankly I'm impressed with the respect the Mustang owners show, e.g.

Quote:
the new 335s are fast as us easily, add a chip and up the boost and they'll hang around with a lot more than mustangs!
Quote:
the guy may have known how to shift and was in his powerband
Quote:
thats a damn good motor bmw puts in there.
Accept the accolades from the distant past but please don't gloat!

And BMWs are not supposed to be about drag racing anyway.
