We should invite some 335i's and E46 M3s (stock and modified) and meet up at LACR or just get together for German Invasion.

I would love the new M3 but I talked to a sales asviser on Monday and he said the new m3 has been delayed to march-may area. Plus the smg or dsg version won't be out untill even later than that.
Someone made me an offer on my car I may not be able to refuse and I have a 335 coupe lined up .(possibly)

Hey Jon....
I agree with you that would be a great idea... i'm down with that. The only problem is the buyer wanted to pick up my car on Sunday. He wants to fly in from PA and put it on a trailor then go home monday. Thus the rush on my part to make a decision.

P.S Jon .... I'm Sam Russo's nephew. You did some work on his e39 M5. nice job
For those of you who have volunteered to run I will be pm'ing you .
thanks

Naw, a modded M3 will take out a 335. I think if both are stock a 335 will take it 1/4 mile but lose to like say 140. The M3 is a monster in the top end.

1/4 is too close to call. It is a drivers race. I am +1 with SoCal335i about the top end though. 335 has little chance past, say, 90mph.

If I was in your place, I'd turbo the M3. I am still impressed with what horsepowerfreaks did to their stock m3. Keep it unless you are tired of it.

Nice mods. The D/A software is really nice with the mods. You'll definitely pull on a stock 335i, particularly after about 80.

Search through some of WalkedU's old posts. He has posted some good videos. He has raced just about everything out there with his PROceded 335i. He has pulled pretty easy on an M3 with exhaust, CAI as well as another M3 with 3.91s and UDPs (which has ran 12.8s @ 108).

Faster in terms of straight line speed, I would think a Proceded 335i will take a stock E46 M3. My tuned 335 Diesel will take out an E46 M3 rolling from 30MPH; take off from stationary, the E46 M3 pulls slightly ahead until my D hits the 2nd gear 'surge' zone.

However, if you want to compare 'faster' round corners, on twisties or on a track, the E46 M3 is still hard to beat.

Well here's some more things to consider that will rattle the brain
M3 - high dollar car with mods. Mods that will cost more to maintain as a F/I car for longevity reasons. Still feels better than a 335 to a lot of owners because of the viceral feel of the car (entire package) and not as porkly as the 335. HP can be increased significantly with F/I that will rival the 335 but at a cost greater than that of the 335 dollar/HP

335 - New car with warranty. No "extra" F/I issues to really deal with. Simple plug and play unit will drastically improve HP with little or no affect. You'll get all the new "toys" that BMW updated the lineup with a newer make and model.
Initial cost of ownership for the short term will be less but you'll probably lose your car for a month or so waiting on a new HPP. HP will more than likely be capped at what the Procede plus intake/exhaust will put out due to other constraints in the car without doing some serious motorwork.

+1. This should be an interesting race but the M3 may not have enough mods to win in the 1/4 mile. Race to 150 may be a different story.
