Can a 2008 335i coupe beat a dodge charger srt8?

Hey guys..

I would like to know if a 2008 bmw 335i coupe can beat an any dodge charger srt8? using a manual transmittion.. also what others cars this bmw can beat?.... I would like to know because many people say that the dodge charger is the beast and I hate it because the dodge charger looks like a car for rednecks, the interior is from bad quality also because my ex-girlfriend liked the car of his friend that was a dodge charger.. I'm asking because I need a fast car with a good looking..

These are very good questions / statements / sentence fragments. I'll see if I can answer them for you.

Yes, you would like to know that.

I assume that you meant to type "transmutton", referring to a sheep which has had gender reassignment surgery. But since a sheep cannot legally drive, I don't think it has a chance against the mighty SRT8.

What other cars can this bmw beat include the Ford Probe, Diahatsu Charade, the mighty Citroen CV-2, and some other cars.

I understand the concern. After all, many races are decided not by horsepower, but by the quality of the interior.

I want to be sure that I understand you correctly. Your ex-girlfriend is a man, and he has a friend who is a Dodge Charger.

You need a fast car with a good looking..?

I give up. I'm trying to make light of this post, but it's just too painful to try to decipher what you wrote. What did you do, put a dictionary in a blender and then post the results online? I would have replied to you sooner, but the first time I read this, I called 911 because I thought I was having a stroke.

Yes, the 335i is fast. It might even beat a Charger. But if you can afford one, I suggest that you instead use the money for some remedial English classes.

Sincerely,
Frederic

P.S. Yes, I am an ass.

Looks like the kids are going to overrun this forum with what oil, what octane & can car A beat car B over & over & over again now that used 335's are in their price range. By next year it will be an E90post clone.

I think that I'll get that Jaguar F-Type V8S. That'll keep most of the Fast and Furious type away.
Unfortunately it costs a large fraction of the price of a house.

I can swing that! My house cost $32,800. In 1973 when I bought it.
As long as you brought the F-Type up: Automobile's cover this week shows one with the huge title "Jaguar Drops an F-Bomb on the Germans!"

In 10 years you'll be picking up a previously loved Charger at the local "Buy here, Pay here" lot and thinking about all the Bud Light you can buy with the money you saved. Then, as you cruise the back streets of Toledo looking for love in all the wrong places, you'll notice that there's not a BMW in sight and realize that you made the right decision.

See here Blanco these boy are making you look bad.

Do not pay attention to these poseurs - that's French. They are jealous and being from San Francisco I know one when I see one. Believe me they are boys.

No the 335i coupe can not beat a didge charger. 335i coupe has better interiors but it cannot beat a dodge charger, especially the srt8. I am sorry about your girlfriend. Also the 335i coupe is too small.

He actually already finished it and was about to toss it out the window when it went green, but he forgot he had just rolled the window up just seconds prior.

This was 1973 and $33K was serious money in New Hampshire. If you wanted something decent with wheels, and the cinder block conversion kit, you could've gotten it for around $5K.

Hey now, don't diss the Civic. They're great cars that have unfortunately been bastardized by the rice rocket crowd.

So long as you don't suffer from the delusion that you're driving a race car, the Civic is a wonderful vehicle. Sells for $8000 used, gets 37mpg highway, and holds its value.

Hey, I know how to assure that the BMW beats the SRT8.

Pull the BMW motor and install a Chevrolet small block crate motor kicking out around 400-450 HP. Put a stout automatic behind it. No problem, you'll eat the SRT8's lunch, and you won't have spent quite as much as the SRT8 cost to do the BMW mods.

Oh, while you're at it, tub the rear wheel wells and install slicks just to get a bit of extra edge. You'll have to change the rear end to do this...but you will have turned a BMW into a drag car, which is the exact opposite of what it was designed to be.

Finally, go out and buy another BMW so you will have a car you can actually drive on the street.

After thinking of all the things I said when I was younger, and sometimes still say , I am of the opinion that people should not be allowed to speak in public until at least the age of 30.
