I think conditions and the driver have a lot to do with it. The 335is has done 0-60 in 4.5 seconds in the right conditions so that still bests the 5.1 time.
Regardless, performance on the new 335i appears to be improved and albiet better gas mileage to boot with the nice exterior, interior, sound et al. Cudos to BMW for improving the sedan.
I like the coupe like sporty coupe like front end (I'm not a sedan person though) and the exhaust note is much better. The interior I like but not a fan of the center console are but the cup holders were needed.

My F30 335i is just as fast as my ex my 2007 N54 335i but even has a better sound/brakes and chassis to it.
Whatever the outcome and until the M3 arrives, or if there's an upgrade of the N55 etc., in this segment the F30 335i sportline is the real sports sedan as BMW advertised.
