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 Wrong Again
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) No F30 in 2010
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.
Sorry bud you must have not read the article link.

"Our mere automatic 2012 335i, down a turbo and supposedly 20 horsepower and 32 lb-ft, reached 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and the quarter mile in 13.3 sec at 103.9 mph. That's right on pace with a Camaro SS, assuming it's driven well."

Your 1LE is a performance package btw. Spend more time actually driving the cars then reading about them you might know the Camaro to get those times has all traction aids turned off which on the street most drivers will spin like crazy. Unlike the 335i which will almost dead hook. The better driver will win the race. The cars are almost dead even even with the crappy BMW run flats.

Keep making smiley faces on your posts it seems to be what your good at.
