Great car as a grand tourer though!
I'd wait to see more reviews first. One review achieved 0-60 in 4.7s

Lateral acceleration =0.99 g (avg)

Well, you get my point. IMPRESSIVE CAR

Does anyone have pricing info yet?! I want the cheapest version that has the real brakes.

Edit: 30k!? I need to stop wasting money on mods. There are bigger fish to be fried

Ive seen a couple races in person between the 335i(stock) and the 07 350z (nismo exhaust) both 6speed and the z pulls on the 335i.

HOw can I not think about this before.....maybe the driver of the 335i didnt know how to shift......!

Anyway, in a real world with good drivers on both a 350z slightly modded(no turbo or supercharge kits) and a completely stock 335i, the BMW would win eventually.

It needs a turbo or at least an engine that will accept one without blowing up. You'd be floored at how many guys have blown VQs on the old 350.

I have to admit, I think it looks better than the current. I was totally against the headlights, now I think they look decent.

The front end reminds me of a snake (GI Joe - Cobra)
