They are probably just clueless about Bluetooth.

Or more commonly the BLUETOOTH DOESN'T WORK!
These real short protocol for reliability is Zigbee and one day we will not have to deal with unreliable crappy Bluetooth- YES it works for some just fine but more often than not is just sucks.

Usable power vs. power

Agree 100%. That's why I bought my 2006 E46 330Cic instead of a used M3 convertible. The 330 is actually more fun because you can use the full potential of the engine in normal driving without breaking the speed limit by a factor of 2!
Unless you're tracking your car, the horsepower wars are sort of irrelevant.

Actually I think others are whining. I simply offered an opinion to people who have asked the question many times on this site and others.

There's more to a car than just its straight-line power. The 335i has a different engine, so what. Same frame, body, interior, suspension, etc. Get a grip.

I know women that drive SL600's and 6-series, I guess those are girly cars too....
Hit a nerve here huh Blue?

i hope you know your wording is a little bit harsh on 328 and i also hope you know that there are a bunch of happy 328 owners here. you could've delivered the same message in many other ways. and you are just one of the few hundred thousands, if not more, people who has test drove the 3 series.

The E46 M3 puts down maybe 290hp to wheels.
Not really a speed demon.

328 vs 335..There is no comparison

Horsepower doesn't make a car. Neither does a good 0-60.
