I don't think these cars were competing against one another, they are the best coupes in their class of different price points.

Hmmmmmmm.

Miles per hour must be smaller in the states. UK independent tests gives the 435i circa 5.4 seconds to sixty. Certainly nowhere near the 4 second bracket.

Awesome!

The M Sport 435i really looks incredible (and menacing) when clad in M Performance parts. I imagine that a fully decked-out 435i xDrive launches like an absolute monster.

The "claimed" stated BMW time of 4.7 seconds is the xdrive with launch control.

Seriously but 60k for this car. I just don't get it. Buy a used 335 (with n54). Much better performance and value. I test drive the new 435i and was not overly impressed. Just my 2 cents.

I thought the same thing. The 4 series is awesome after seeing it and driving it I can say it earned "4" nomenclature

If we are talking about stock, show me a single metric where the N54 E92 was faster?

This article linked below addresses it to some degree on the e92 platform.

http://www.automobilemag.com/reviews...5is_dyno_test/

I drove the n54 for 3 years and the n55 for 4 and the N55 definitely felt slower but with less turbo lag and it more than made up for it in being trouble free. I only went in for oil changes in my whole 4 years where as the N54 was at the dealer atleast once every 2 months.

Sure there's potential based on the N54 alone but stock, it's not better. Also consider that not many people want to deal with the issues that plagued early E90/E92's with the N54 engine - don't really care if BMW is going to replace it under warranty, it's still time and hassle just for something that is older and could be potentially better.
