and regardless, that shrinks the time difference. 3.5 car (3 series) car lengths at 110 mph is .32 of a second. add some acceleration in there, and we are probably talking .29-.31 second difference, rough guess. point is a lot less than 1-1.5 seconds, and Steve was directionally correct, accurate enough for this discussion

Alex, I happen to agree that the SRT 8 is the faster car. I just can't figure out why you're on this forum.

Enough with the lectures about safety... It was done in a safe place with absolutely no one in sight!!! It is certainly not something I do on a daily basis or condone for others. There is a time and a place for this sort of thing, and this happened to be one. I thank you all for your concern, but understand that I share the same sense of responsibility for public safety and ideals not to make us "bimmer drivers" look bad. I did absolutely nothing the other day but REPRESENT big time.

actually the srt8s cost about the same as ur bimmer
335i Coupe
Base Retail Price (MSRP) $40,800
C SRT8
Base Retail Price (MSRP) $40,420
Yes ur right. His 325 is more expensive than a srt8. Go get ur facts straight. its about the same price as ur 335.
and im not saying that the 335 sucks, just the 325, my boy has 325i fully loaded, i still think that car is what it is meant to be, the Cheapest Car of the bimmer brand

You may not be aware, but there are lots of less expensive Bimmers out there, and some will come to the States soon enough (the 1-series).

In the US, the 328 and 335 are the low-end of the BMW brand, but you can see there are lots of lower models sold elsewhere. Also, you can see that the 325i is far from the "cheapest car" of the brand:

116i
118i
118d
120i
120d
130i
318i
318d
320i
320d
325i
325xi
325d
328i
328xi
330i
330xi
330d
330xd
335i
335xi
335d

To be honest, you should give BMW a try. Detroit muscle is fun, I'm sure, but a BMW has a feel all its own -- whether it's a 325 or a 335, the driving feel is superb.

Uh, BMW doesn't make the 325i anymore for the U.S; it was replaced by the 328i which is least expensive BMW I believe. The 335i IS a step above the 328i, only b/c it has the FI tt N54 engine; however, the body styles and interiors are the same.
