BMW 335i vs 335d - Side by side
A side by side comparison of the 335d and the 335i. Both cars are
PLEASE NOTE: There is a hesitation in the 335d's speedo at around 120kph.
Please notice that the speedo jumps just five or six kph back, then jumps
forward again. I don't know what glitch caused this - but it certainly
isn't an attempt at being biased towards the 335i.

Battle of the Bimmers: BMW M3 v BMW 135i v BMW 335i
Before you start sending us flaming e-mails complaining that a comparison
between the 2008 Audi S5 and the 2008 BMW M3 Coupe is an obvious mismatch
from the get-go, you should know a few things.
Our first full test of the $53,000, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 was a bit
of a revelation. With a 354-horsepower version of Audi's
direct-injection 4.2-liter V8 under its hood, the voluptuous Audi S5 ran a
13.3-second quarter-mile at 104 mph, just 0.1 second and 2 mph shy of the
420-hp 2007 Audi RS4 sedan. What's more, the S5's slalom speed is within a
couple mph of the harsh-riding RS-spec sedan. "It ran a 13.3? With that
kind of speed, who needs a $67,000 RS4?" we asked ourselves.
We believe so strongly in the 2008 Audi S5 that it earned our Inside Line's
inaugural Editors' Choice Award.
So we acquired (hastily perhaps) another 2008 Audi S5 and set it against
the new 2008 BMW M3 Coupe, a car now fortified with V8 power for the first
time. Speed-reading the specifications sheets of these two cars, they seem
like natural rivals: the 354-hp, all-wheel-drive 2008 Audi S5 measured
against the 414-hp, rear-wheel-drive 2008 BMW M3.
But as it turns out, we gave the 2008 Audi S5 a bigger challenge than we
had initially intended.
