Another 335is review (w/video) by kilometer magazine


The guys at kilometer magazine were at the recent driving event at Portugal and have put up their review of the 335is, whats unique about this one is that there is some orgasmic video to go along with the writeup. This review and autospies are the only two i've seen with this good of video so far. I've included the video portion of the review here, but you should follow the link for the written review.

Cool video.
Placement of the cones on the track is pretty cool too. Looks like they marked the braking, turn in and, apex points. Great way to learn IMO.

Edit: and yes, the driver was a pu$$y.

4.8 is closer to the real world results of the 335i, BMW's official (understated) number was 5.3. So the is coming in at 5.0 from BMW seems just about right, and should translate to around 4.6 in the real world I'm guessing.

The video is remarkable. In it, the kilometer magazine demonstrated that it is possible to use a race track to drive in the same manner as on a road open to general public.

Nice job by Bryan.

It just isn't cool to drive mfs' cars at more than 8/10s if that's what they ask of you.

Plus that slug of a F10 (the grey one at the head of the pack = pace car...) was slowing everything down.

Man, do I want those wheels for my 09 M-sport!!!
The car doesn't look that bad, although I am not a fan of the aluminum interior trim, nor the black mirrors.

It looks more like an "F10" 5 Series to me.
