For what it's worth, their umbrage comes of you stating that the car is more agile, not that it's faster. No one would contend the fact that it's faster, what they're arguing is that it would be...

Of course it would be different with different rolling radii, but a theoretical number based on ideal tire size is preferable in my mind to an anecdote.

Though that's six one way and half a dozen...

On my car, they are flash-to-pass regardless of the fact that I have bi-xenons. Meaning, when you pull the stalk towards you instead of pointing away, it will turn on the halogen center lights,...

I'll be honest, I think that car looks better than the E9x does. That car is smoking hot, especially with the sport package that gives it that huge MB badge in the grille.

335XiT is just entirely too much to ask for. The only thing better would be a 535XiT. Either would be /so/ hot. Probably my ideal car, even.

This makes me very excited about the 335i.

This also raises another point: what about the M3? It sounds like they over-engineered the 335i to ~350HP and turned it back down. What's going to...

Yes, where comfort=smoothness. :)

My umbrage alarm was triggered when 6er said that 3s are totally unsuited to highway driving. That's the only spot I disagreed with him.

I can assure you that I'm not. The 5-series is about five inches wider than the 3, and is similar in all other dimensions. Given that I'm fairly slender, I find the driving area of the 3-Series...
