Our stock 335 is sloppy in comparison, you have to do many things to the suspension to even get close and it still won't handle like the m3. If your doing a motor swap, you tend to look for a wrecked car or one with a blown engine you can get for cheap. I'm just saying if I was going to pay for a motor swap I'd find a high mileage m3 and get it done.... Go swap a engine in your 335 if you want, I don't care ha
    you'lll be surprised.. the chassis are actually not reinforced like you think

    it's all in the bolt-ons.. suspension, subframes etc.

    which you can find for surprisingly good prices Click here to enlarge

    so... yeah.. only a few $k all up (minus.. you know.. the whole widebody to fit equivalent rubber and track. which is a few $k in itself)

    same deal for a 1M.. it's JUST the E82 chassis, if you get a 135i and 1m and fully strip them to pieces... you really think they'll be different? hells no.

    And you still didn't answer my question. Please name a car in the 335i category that is better. I'm talking contemporaries and same target market. The M3 ramblings don't count as inaccurate as they were.
    you can get an E92 M3 for under $20k? where from? considering a 335 is about that price :/

    unless you mean an E92 335 which is bang on lol

    I noticed on e90post in your sig it says you also have a 370z. How do you like the handleing on that, and how does it compare to an e90/e92 with the sports package. Always liked the looks of those cars, and they sound great too!
    Handling on the 370Z is outstanding. By the raw numbers, it would give an M3 trouble on a tight track and due to the shorter wheelbase, it would probably win at the auto-X. But the M3 has superior brakes and makes more power; so on a normal roadcourse the M3 would win pretty easily. Nissan could have really bumped up the power on this engine, lots of N/A aftermarket options are bumping it up to the 310whp range (stock is 270ish); but they didn't want it competing with the GTR.

    As far as feel, the 370z's road feel is superior to the E92 sports pkg; you can definitely tell what's going on in the suspension. But compared to the steering in my E92 (PSSs with M3 LCAs and TSs), I like my car better. The Z's steering is lighter, but you can still feel the road. I just prefer heavier steering feel (very subjective there).

    As for sound, I'm not a fan of the stock 370z sound vs stock 350z sound. But once you put on an aftermarket exhaust, the 370z sounds amazing. It's pretty cool punching it and hearing the rpms scream at 7500; motor just sounds great. Impressive IMO for a V6 as most V6s I've heard, I REALLY don't like. My old 300zxTT sounded like crap as did all the 3kgts and Stealths. I dunno if its just the firing pattern, head-design, or what; but it sounds really good in the VQ motor.

    Yeah I meant a 335 Click here to enlarge Most of the lower priced M3s I'm seeing are mid-low 30s (which is a HELLUVA bargain).

    Nah, haha, other cars

    like my 1er.. (I LOVE the simple interior otherwise, all soft and smooth) Not sure if 3ers are the same i assume they are, even if the dash/door trims etc are nicer

    ^^^ ^_^


    not to mention... Surely, with the power you can get from a cobb screwing with the stock tables etc.. Having a tuning system that says 'how high' when you say 'j-' can't hurt?

    Whelp, it's official. I dropped Garth at the airport this morning. I will try and make sure he get's you updates while he's out there. It's going to be a little hard because I am not there with him to bug him and Jason, and also because I am leaving to go to California tomorrow to help cover the Long Beach Grand Prix. =)

    Lets get some news! I'm super stoked you guys have done all this. Even in light of all the breakthroughs with the hpfp, this is still going to be the best solution for those looking to avoid the DME nannies and go for big power. All the top records will be set with stand alones.
