Ok here you go.

Why not use the same magazine for the two cars? Why post the fastest time for the 335 and slowest for the SS (lol the SS is still faster after 0-60 on its WORST test) ?

They are NOT dead even. You can chose to ignore facts but it won't change them. I don't like the Camaro SS at all but it is a much faster vehicle then the F30 335 whether you like it or not.

C & D

Camaro SS
0-60 4.6 sec
1/4 mile 13.0 @ 111 mph
0-130 18.0 sec

BMW 335i (F30)
0-60 5.3 sec
1/4 mile 13.8 @ 103 mph

BMW 335 (E90)
0-60 4.8 secs
1/4 mile 13.6 @ 106 mph
0-130 20.7 secs

Lightning lap times:

Camaro SS - 3:09.5
BMW M3 - 3:05.4
BMW 135i - 3:13.7
2007 BMW 335i Coupe (N54 which is faster than the N55 F30) - 3:10.5
Cadillac CTS-V - 3:04.0
Oh and Cobalt SS - 3:13.5


2013 Camaro SS 1LE
0-60 4.3 secs
1/4 mile 12.7 @ 111 mph

2012 F30 335i
0-60 4.7 secs
1/4 mile 13.3 @ 103.9 mph


2010 E90 BMW 335 (did not see a test for the F30)
0-60 5.2 secs
1/4 mile 13.4 @ 103.5

2010 Camaro SS
0-60 5.1 secs
1/4 mile 13.1 @ 110.4

While you can obtain a slightly different 0-60 time depending on traction, tires used, weather conditions, driver skill and so on, one thing will almost always stay very consistent which is the trap speed. It is a good indication of power and there is significant difference between the two vehicles. So you can spin it however you want in favor of the 335 but the facts are that the SS is a much quicker vehicle.
