Ditto. I like the bodykit, etc., but I find this and the 335is on the passenger-side dash trim a little tacky...

The "335is" logo on the gauges is just as gaudy as the ///M logo--

The difference is M is A+ student while 335is is an A- student wearing his grade on his sleeves.

a pointless model added to the 3 series lineup imo. either they use that new motor in all 335s or just leave it alone. the price (not msrp, real market price) between the 335is and M3 are so close. i just priced out a fully loaded 2009 m3 coupe fully loaded with DCT, premium and tech package for $60800. i doubt you can get a similar equipped 335is for significantly less than that. also you have to endure through all the comments about why buy a fake M3 orM3 wannabe from your friends . the E46 ZHP were different, they were only a couple grand more than the regular E46 330i.

Either you mis-typed the "6" in that $60800 (it should be a "7", as in $70800) or you are talking about an used 2009 M3...

I agree with the pointless model, though...

go to carsdirect, type in zip code 91776 and see it for yourself. it's brand new '09 coupe with DCT, premium and tech packages. i guess it depends on the market, but BMW is heavily discounting the 3 series and m3s in my area until Feb 1st.

Your original statement was "priced out". Usually, when someone says something like that it means that they configured the car on bmwusa.com to their liking. Probably, that's how Technic was interpreting your post. I interpreted it that way when I read it, and I was about to reply to your post until I saw that he already did.

Certainly there are some great M3 deals out there, like the one you've found and as I mentioned in an earlier post. But, if you are determined, you will be able to get good deals on a 335is also. Probably not as good as you can, percentage wise, on an M3 from two model years ago, no. But if someone wants a current model car to begin with, they are not going to be considering a 2009 M3 anyway.

I do agree it would have been nice for BMW to just bump the standard 335i to 330hp, but I think you'll have to wait for the F3x for that.

^^^ yeah, my bad, forgot to mention carsdirect.com in my 1st post. as far as for 335i discounts, i was offered 4500 below invoice on an e90 2009 335i, just to give you a picture.

"Pointless car"?? NOT!
What you are looking at is the basis of the next M3 motor.. Turbo I-6
The V8 M3 is a gas guzzler and let face it.. 95% of all M3's are daily Drivers..
This car is about "efficiency".. almost M3 performance... and 37% better milage...
Cost of ownership is going to be less....Insurance, tires, service..
The M3 is a very special car.. do not get me wrong, love to have one,
Sure a "used" M3 is about the same price.. so is a USED Porsche 996 Turbo (23 mpg highway).. and well now there is PERFORMANCE and far more "modable"... Let's compare apples to apples...

This car has clearlly stated objective... "capture those who want something better than a ordinary 335i, but do not want the cost and expences of an M3" , A gap filler, and one that will be a blast to drive, with little guilt at the gas pump... And factory Warranty

The CLEAR POINT OF THE CAR... "Efficient FUN"...

Nice package for the 335 they should do a E90 in a IS package. Well at least I have a E90 M3.

This is no more the basis of the next M3 motor than any other N54 or N55 is. The M3 motor will probably have a lot of changes from both the N54 and N55, just as the S63 has many changes from the N63.

I agree with the basic premise of what you are saying. I don't necessarily agree an M3 is more expensive to own than a 335i (being that I own both).

I do not want an M3 for the 20 mpg highway. I get just about 30 mpg highway on my 335, and I drive a lot. I have already logged over 30k miles in less than a year of ownership! 20 mpg vs. 30 mpg is a huge difference at those levels. I am sure there are other people out there that think that mpg difference is large as well. If the M3 had the TT I6, it would be perfect in my book. If I get promoted and get to drive less, then maybe an M3 would be in my future. But, for now, that 335is looks awesome, although I would prefer 6MT instead of DCT.

Everyone's a critic. I love everything about this car. If it had an LSD it would be perfect.

This 335 IS model will compete against the AUDI S4 Supercharged model and similar cars in this performance level. I think BMW did a great job. To hear people worry about what others say about a fake M3 or getting a M3 look at what they drive Im sure its not a BMW!!!!

It's too bad they didn't make a 335is sedan, so it would be a direct competitor to the S4. Instead, the car is more of an S5 competitor even thought the S5 coupe still has the V8 for now (convertible does have the 3L SC V6 like the S4).

I have a question not sure anyone can answer, although I don't believe it has been answered yet. Hopefully there is someone who can clarify.

My question has to do with the suspension and the chasis dynamics. If you were to compare a 2007 335i with sports package (non Mpackage not available at that time) to a 2011 335is are they essentially the same. Meaning, if you upgraded the exhaust and engine tune would you essentially have the exact same car less the aesthetic upgrades.

Thanks for any insights.
