Oh I missed maxbimmer over my winter hiatus. ... Good job on the fact correction Stephanie! But really? The 335 is rated at 5.8 seconds 0-100? That's quick, but I thought it would be a bit quicker. I've seen my barge tested to reach 60mph in 5.9 (see link) which I find slightly hard to believe given that I've got less bhp, marginally higher torque, and a lot more weight (when compared to a 335). That, and I've been in a 335 accelerating at full tilt, and it felt a heck of a lot faster than my car ... maybe it's just the overly refined ride of the 7 that makes it feel a lot slower ... doubt it.
