The M3 handles curves noticeably better than the 335is. Minimal body roll (compared to my 911 that has virtually none) and you always feel in control. I sometimes feel like the 335is is going to give away through curves.

Tell ya what - after much wrenchin' on my suspension, I got neutral handling with no limit found yet. Not tracked!

Surprised the E93 M3 plowed - xtra weight's rearward. Maybe something goin' on there.

Stock 335i[s] suspension grew intolerable for this li'l boy. Handles now; runs real fast. With 2.5 front camber, a supple performer that simply ran away from others on back roads.

Still. 911 would seem to have it beat. Or is it just me?
