You shouldn't have made a thread about this if you're just going to tease us and leave us hanging.

Me neither (even tho I won't be able to get one for a while ) ! Argh I need to come into some money soon because when members here start taking delivery and posting impressions I'm gonna be insanely jealous. Just gotta be patient and bide my time until I can afford it I guess.

Tell us more!

What a pointless thread really. On top of that, it won't be a monster. It isn't exactly going to be some huge difference. I mean come on. Let's not get carried away. Some guy test drives some car and is impressed. Big deal. With out facts and figures it means nothing at all. Numbers don't lye, but people can be impressed driving an old Chevy.

Guys I would love to indulge in this matter but I can get myself and my buddy in trouble...he said the torque is amazing...better than the E46M3...0 turbo lag...none! My buddy said that its to the point where you kind of need the LSD because traction is a little crazy with all that power...

This wait is killing me!!!

Straz posted this thread so that anyone who perhaps wanted to find out how the test drive was could talk to him about it over IM.

No need for the sarcastic posts.

Look, if the guy is lying, and somehow gets stones off by posting things meant only to get a rise out people on an electronic bulletin board, then you should feel bad him...because he has serious issues.

HE'S NOT LYING...WHO WOULD DO THAT??? Give him a break...

I, personally, am jealous of his friend...

Nothing strange about it. Of course, 300hp and 300ft-lb torques, it should be a monster. Imagine that the e46 M3 + 40 ft-lb torques added.

BMWNA loves you guys, drooling over the 335(cha-ching$$$$$$)
Wait Till the price list comes out and then the complaints about how "the price is to close to an E46 M3' and "I have to wait 3 months for an allocation/order slot" and "nobody will deal on the car and "they still want MSRP and it's been out for 6 months!" Just the way I see it from all the previous posts and previous speculation.
