    I like the V12 a lot but it's just slow.

    I would rather supercharge the AMV8.

    The fact a porsche with a smaller 6 cylinder walks it that hard is kind of embarrassing.

    Man performance isn't the whole thing , and i'm sure GT3 will kill Vantage V12 in the first corner too but an Aston gives you a feeling that no other car does.

    Absolutely, it is just embarrassing for a V12 to get walked like that though.

    Because you call the M3 slow but not the C63? I don't get it.

    It can if you mod it enough. The C350 also isn't turbo.

    Both the M3 and the C63 are slow unless massive amounts of $$ is invested in them.

    I rather have my 335i than any of those two. Now the new C63 Black Series is a different story.

    I wouldn't, neither would anyone sane. 335 why? It isn't faster than either even modded without meth and even then if you want to make it "fast" you have to invest massive amounts of money.

    Well compared to the 335 a used '03 cobra is a lot less money and can be faster than either. Are we going for bang for the buck?

    New car? And with tuning?

    Because bang for the buck was never my concern and I doubt most C63 owners look and say they could have had a chipped 335 for less money.

    If you are looking to tune a new european car without spending ridiculous amount of $ and drive a 11 sec car the 335i is the way to go.

    New, it is a good choice if you can't go beyond a certain budget and are ok with being limited to 11's. Don't get me wrong, it is a great car.

    Used, you can get a 996 turbo and start with a much better platform for the same if not less amount of $.

    True but the cost down the road will be way more money than a 335i

    How many fuel pumps is the 996 going to need? The GT1 is bulletproof.
