Let's get the juvenile "what if's" and "what about's" out of the way. No M3 driver cares. The bottom line is that the 335 CAN NOT DELIVER THE M EXPERIENCE.

As a bmw enthusiast we can not pinpoint one virtue that makes the BMW superior to it's rivals. Rather it's the entire experience that makes the BMW the winner. I love my 335i for what it is, but it will never be an M car.
The M3 satisfies all senses:
Sight: the M3 is sexy; its sleek. The power dome, flared wheel arches, and fender gills mean business.
Sound: the heirarchy of engine notes: V6 (or I or whatever)
Touch: the feel of the silky steering wheel and the effortless turn in.
Smell: fine leather hides and burning PSS
Taste: the taste of victory
Short and sweet; buy the M. The 335is is in nice, but at the end of the day the valet will move it to the "main lot" so that the M3 may sit our front.
