No I am not Trishield. 2007 BMW 335i Coupe - Features The Lightning Lap, 2007: LL2 ($30,000–$60,000) class participant. August 2007 http://www.caranddriver.com/features/13173/the-lightning-lap-2007.html LL2 ($30,000–$60,000) Between the two (MCoupe), you’d expect the 335i to be more supple over bumps, have vastly more interior room, and be as refined as a Lexus. But what floored us was that the 335i’s best lap (3:10.5) was 1.2 seconds quicker than the M coupe’s. It’s a case of neutral handling over outright speed. Whereas the M coupe had understeer at turn-in that switched to oversteer at the exit, the 335i was nearly perfectly balanced everywhere and made up most of its time in the region between the braking zone and turn apex. The 335i does everything remarkably well, which is why many of us at Car and Driver think it’s the best all-around car in the world. Yikes that is a pretty lofty comment on the 335i.
