The BMW in that video had the 19" wheel option on the sportline I believe which comes with sticky summer rubber I think.

My biggest disappointment is that the 335i has gained ZERO power (and in fact lost about 20hp up top) over 7 model years.

Solo cup with an engine? You just said they had Brembos, and obviously you need a solid chassis to lap decent times; the car deserves more credit than that.

GT500 is a load faster in the straight line. The ZL1 has a superior suspension...same shocks as the ZR1.
