Funny. Ever since BMW advertised the 335i "nearly as fast as" the E46 M3, 335i owners have developed a little power-trip. Youtube is littered with E46 M3s racing E90 335is. I had a little fun with a 335i. They're impressive, but not nearly as fast.
My story: I was following a 335i on an on-ramp to a major highway. Time was after dinner: No cars on the HWY, but not late either. He recognized me in his mirror because I could see him goose the throttle, tailgating the car infront of him. Two turns, P500 Sport, S6, DSC Off, I shot into the middle lane and he was two car lengths back before he could merge onto the slow lane. I let off the gas around 130 MPH, and he was a dot in the mirror. When he caught up, he gave me a big thumbs-up. Fun time.
This 335i wasn't tuned. Quick, but not anywhere close to the M5 fast in my opinion.
My logic: Slowest --> Fastest: E90 335i < E46 M3 < Audi RS4 < M5
So: E90 335i is <<< M5.
