Honest opinions on 335i

Hey fellas I hope I don't start a flame war here.

I am in much of a debacle since I have recently just sold my 2004 e46 M3.

I have no idea what car I want to get to replace it... STI, EVO, G37, or IS350.

But it seems like I have my eyes on a 09-10 335i, it seems like BMW puts crack on their seats which makes me want another BMW.

I will probably cobb or jb4 the car which would make the 335i a beast on the straight lines.

Main questions I actually have is for people who have driven the 335i and e46 M3

1) How different is the pedal feel? Is it linear and easy to control? (I hate the japanese and american cars that have it loose)

2) How is the steering like? (e46 m3 had it perfect, and again I do not like the way japanese and american cars having the steering wheel loose/light)

3) I know the e46 m3 is better handling, but is the 335i still pretty good with the sport suspension (thinking of upgrading down the line)? I do like a little bit of spirited driving on corners.

If you have any other constructive opinions on aiding me with my purchase that would be great!
