A testament to the 335i and also evolution of technology is that your 335i would, given equal drivers and stock-stock, outlap both of those cars on a road course.

The Porsche for sure, it would get killed... but the Ferrari? Isn't it like a 4-point-something 0-60? That kind of acceleration is going to be hard to beat... I suppose an inexperience driver could do better in the 335xi than the Ferrari, but the a skilled driver could probably turn better laps in the Ferrari I would imagine. Of course, I've never been on a track, so I'm mostly speaking out my butt I suppose.

The 335i is such a balanced vehicle that it surprises many.

Using "magazine racing", the 335i laps the Nurburgring about 5.5 seconds FASTER than a Ferrari F355. The convertible, no doubt, is even slower. Up here at altitude, it biases the 335i even futher!

Power is a small part of the equation when you're on a road course. Last weekend, I was giving a Noble M12 in the advanced group a very very hard time and those things do 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. I have some great video, should see if I can post it.

Even more embarassing, the well-prepped Miatas typically post similar lap times to stock C5 vettes, given similar drivers.
