"What's that mean?" you say. Well, M3 feels and is vastly more competent on the road. Thus, a premium price. Very rewarding on country roads or any time the suspension is asked to do something.

335i[s] can be modded to go faster than M3; can easily be fitted with M3 suspension parts - it's the same core really - just R&R w/M + 3rd party parts. Most are inhibited by the down time + expense of that.

Down low, 335i[s] can out-pull M3, yielding a bigger smile. Modded that only gets better.

Your thoughts?

Yeah not to mention ESS Even the best mods on the n54 won't touch that.
