I'm sitting in the airport in Denver, and just read the article. Of course, the E90 won by a wide margin. I believe I made the right choice in the Bimmer (everyone here will probably agree). A buddy has the G35, and I didn't really like it much - my main concern was the interior trim - looks kind of cheesy.

Those lateral acceleration figures are unbelievable. Does the article mention what tires were on that car?

Probably the Bridgestones. The 330 handles like a beast!
And mine hasn't even been broken in yet.
