Without a doubt the bimer. Bi turbo, lightweight, sports tuned, higher torque with optimum rev and kw compared to the lexsus.

Well, originally, the IS would wipe the BMW off the board, but BMW added a turbo to the 3-Series so it would be a close race. Personally, I think the IS would because it is one of the most aerodynamic cars in the world and that's got to count for something.

BMW, by far and away















Introduction















Eighth Place: 2005 Saab 9-3 Aero















Seventh Place: 2005 Volvo S60R AWD















Sixth Place: 2005 Cadillac CTS















Fifth Place: 2005 Audi A4 3.2 Quattro















Fourth Place: 2005 Acura TL















Third Place: 2005 Infiniti G35















Second Place: 2006 Lexus IS350















First Place: 2006 BMW 330i















BMW 330i















The Verdict: The preferred running shoes for runners.















BMWs win many of our comparison tests for the same reason marathoners prefer running shoes to mukluks. They just work better for the task at hand.















Our 330i labored hard to lose. The electrical ticks began shortly after it was delivered. The new 3-series has a push-button start. Ours would work only after several exasperated pushes and fiddling with the key. Why, we wondered in the free moments this created, must you even insert the "key" into the dash when many push-button systems, including the IS350's, allow the radio-transmitting key fob to roam free?















. The 3-series is the BMW franchise, accounting for 60 percent of the company's sales. No wonder it feels the least altered, the least Bangle-ized, by its model changeover. The core BMW traits are all there: slot-car steering response, implacable structural rigidity, sublime balance. See your path through a corner, and the BMW nails it with a wrist flick. It doesn't clomp, it doesn't float, its throttle doesn't surge or cause the driveline to buck. It doesn't force you to wrestle with mushy controls or negotiate with bionic brains. It just makes every road your personal pavement playpen.































It helps that this 330i was ordered just right, meaning with a six-speed manual and without the wonky active steering and the atrocious iDrive. Both are warts on the options sheet to be avoided at all costs. Buy an aftermarket navigation system if such things matter to you. The new 3's interior, although beautifully tailored with wood accents and leather sport seats, didn't satisfy all. The radio display is hard to read and harder to operate, the A/C struggled in the heat, and the dash is a meniscus that curves coldly away from you. It's easy to feel like just a cog in the machine.































But, oh, what a machine!

Everyone is right, the 335ci would beat the IS 350 around a track and down a quarter mile.































But the CTS-V would beat them all.
