What are you talking about, reduction in handling?

There is an improvement(not a large one) when going from same model line 335 to 328 due to the weight and where the weight is saved.

I think it's telling the F30 335 is off of the E90 335is by only 6 tenths. Maybe it's a case of different drivers in different conditions. Otherwise the IS was the highest performing non M E92 and had the more powerful N54. So a plain shoes F30 made a good showing. When higher performing variants come out along the F30 life cycle, things will get more interesting.
