Believe what you want but I talked to the dealer and he told me run-flats and it's also indicated in the official Product Bulletin from BMW. Take a look:

Looks like Dakota leather is standard on the iS.

And, point of clarity, 0-100kmh ≠ 0-60mph. So don't freak, the 5.4 0-100 is equivalent to 5.0 0-60. Which, given the extraordinarily conservative data that BMW tosses out, will translate into sub-4.5 sec times in the rags. It wouldn't shock me to see C&D get 3.9 secs.

I think by saying "Performance Tires" it's just indicating that they're not all-seasons.

Could be either way, I just don't see how runflats are performance oriented in any way.

All good though, thanks for posting the pages

Agreed, I was hoping for non-runflats too but it looks like it might be otherwise.

Correct. Summer performance tires. And they are rfts.

Great to see BMW Canada getting its act together with the "ZED" (Euro delivery) option. Assume no big discount like the USA gets though.

I see what you're saying, but 3.9 would shock the hell out of me. I wouldn't be shocked to see 4.5 or 4.6 though.

What's kind of annoying is weigh emphasize the lightweight 18s only to offset the with the additional weight of RFT's lmao-

I was really hoping there'd be some kind of suspension upgrade....guess not.

Anyone have any info on the curb weight of the 335iS compared to a 335i?

How much heavier would my car be with an LSD in it? And how much lighter would my bank account be paying for it?

Enquiring minds want to know.


Put an LSD in the 335...why, then you've got somethin'.

Trudat. 3.9 would actually be pretty ridiculous. Lord help those 911's and AMG's at those traffic lights next to the future M3's

Here's an excerpt from Road & Track's article about this car.


Quote:
Our brief experience with the 335is Coupes consisted of 8 rain-slick laps around Portugalís famed Estoril circuit, but I can say the Sport-spec suspension and 140-treadwear Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tires (225 mm front, 255 mm rear) offered reassuring grip, stability and composure in a chassis that simply refuses to do anything wrong or make its driver look bad. BMW claims a 0-60 time of 5 seconds flat with the DCT gearbox, easy to believe as weíre rocketing out of Estorilís low-speed sweepers with an instant, gratifying hit of torque. Brakes carry over from the regular 2011 335i, but their rotors are generously sized (13.7 in. front, 13.2 in. rear) and only hinted at fade toward the end of the lapping session. And this sucker sounds good too, its sport exhaust issuing a lower-pitched resonant note thatís way short of obnoxious.

Where do you think BMW will position the 335is with respect to lease rates? MF and residuals closer to the 335 coupe or M3? If they are less favorable like the M3, I would really see no reason to buy/finance a 335is when the M3 is not that much more. My lease is up in November of this year so I'm hoping the rates are somewhat attractive.

Im in the same boat as you - and totally torn between a m-sport 335, a 335is or a used m3 ...

hopefully the next few months of reviews will solidify some sort of decision (and a test drive of course)

I assume you want a coupe? If you're not married to that concept.....consider this: in March of next year--all of 5 months after your lease end--comes the all-new F30 3-series sedan.

As far as I know, any way.

This is idiotic. No way I'd buy the car with the ugly aluminum fish-scale texture and huge 335is badge.
