Re: Is there any other car you'd consider over the GT ?
Being an owner of a 335i Coupe’ I’m probably a little bias… but if you take everything into consideration it’s a very very good car. Very comfortable ride when traveling on long trips, excellent seats for 4 good size adults, very powerful 3 liter twin turbo - 306 hp with around 280 bhp at the rear wheels (which most experts claim the engine is underrated by about 30-40 hp), 400 Nm torque (max torque range 1400-5000 rpm), car loves to be thrash around the corners (I have 225/40 18 front and 255/35 18 rear), great steering feedback, good gas mileage (I’m averaging 26 mpg and I have a heavy foot, car’s new so I expect better mileage once its broken in more), most independent 0-100 km test resulted in 5.0 seconds or less, great technology in the car, great dealer service, etc…etc…
Now having said that, I think the next best choice is the Alfa GT V6, truly a lovely car with a great engine!!!!
