Mein Auto: '00 540i 6-speed

as DinnanBimmer said, if you were comparing an i30 to a 5er, its laughable comparison as the i30 is light years inferior to the 5er.
Is your 540 an automatic? Because my 6-speed is quite a bit faster than my G35x was (then again, mine was a 2004). As for weight, they are virtually tied in the curb weight department, but, to me, the 540 "feels" lighter. The AWD just drags the G35 down, IMHO. I felt every pound in that car, especially when autocrossing. Wish I had gotten a RWD 6-speed. I might still have it in that case.
