I could care less what the power curve looks like on a computer. All I know is that when I stepped on the gas in those E9X cars it didn't move very fast, it shifted inconsistently and very abruptly, and there was nothing remarkable about it's performance. Conversely, when I step on the F30, the thing flies and the shifting is so smooth and effortless you barely even know it's taking place.



Well, you had the wrong E90. I'm sure the General Motors transmission didn't help either? F30 328i has a ZF transmission, and was noticeably abrupt to my liking. The ZF-8 truly shines on the 335i.
