F30 335i 3 SECONDS slower than the E90 gen.
F30 335i just 0.7sec ahead of the Hyundai Genesis?
M5 & M6 get smoked by a Chevy, the SS 1LE, much less the ZL1? (Congrats to the Bow Tie crowd btw, wow!)
M5 now the HEAVIEST of the competition (C63 & S6-and it's AWD!!)!!?
It's sad to watch this company try to win the race to average.
To be fair, that Hyundai Genesis Coupe is a 3.8L 350-HP track focused version. LSD, Brembo Brakes, Track suspension. Fun car
