But yes, if you are not mod shy, it should be no problem in getting this car up to an f80 M3 level from a pure power point of view. But at that point you would have spent as much as you would for a base f80 M3, so in my mind defeats the purpose. Either drive the f30 and enjoy it for what it is (INCREDIBLE all arounder) or just pony-up to the M.

Either way, the f30 335i M Sport will be a blast and the 6MT is light years better than the one I had in my e92 M!
Thanks man! Truth is that Im on the VERGE of ponying up for the M3....will define next week. Either way, I know the 335i is an AWESOME car and you are probably right...My E90 M3 was a manual and 2008...first gen...I am sure that the 2014 335i has VAST improvements overall...
