For as long as I've been reading car comparisons in the major automotive magazines, I don't remember the competitors getting hammered sooo bad as in this comparo.

Usually, when you boil it down the winner wins by anywhere from a tenth of a second, to a half a second.

And, the competitors will shine in a few of the tests and beat the winner.

It's NEVER an un-adulterated knockout.

At least, for as long as I remember.

Until now.

FYI, it's a bad and stupid review...

The 335 is no joke. CTS-V guys need to watch their back. Forget a regular CTS

You're right Blackout but I do think FTS should beat it ;)

It may look outrageously overpriced but in fact it's not considering it's has a very luxury interior ,headliner is not cheap plastic unlike base C Class .
0-60 mph is less than 4.3 secs and what's more it hits 0-200 km/h around 11 secs which is almost 1-1,5 secs faster than Ferrari F40 :shhh:

:bouncy: :cool:

A 335 does 4.8 0-60 and low 13's stock. Do a chip upgrade and you will be doing low 4 second 0-60's and easily be in the 12's. Thats before doing intake, exhaust, turbo timer, boost controller, turbo upgrade, etc.

Ac Schnitzer must carry a performance kit for 3 series but still I do think that even an M3 wouldn't beat Brabus .

Screw the M3. I'd much rather have the 335 then the M3. All the M3 is is the same V10 engine from the M5 and M6 minus two cylinders and tada! New M3 engine

I'm sure it will be as great car but I'm not looking to spend that extra $10k or more on one when I can get the 335i and buy a chip and be on equal if not superior performance level then that of the M3. At the end of the day F/I > N/A when it comes ot cost of modifying
