The 335is delivers the 335is experience and it's a fun experience in it's own right. Trying to express a feeling a car gives you is difficult because of the many small things that make up the whole. The car handles great, has all of the usable power you need when you get on it, and it sounds fantastic. There are also fewer of them on the road than any other 3 Series and quite possibly any other modern BMW series.

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.
