I was lucky enough to go for a ride in a new 330ci just recently. What a great car. But the M3 is without a doubt a faster car, by quite a bit.

The 330ci is supposed to be decently quick, it didn't feel as quick as I expected, but it still rocks.

I think the extra 80kw the M3 has over the 330 makes the M3 the winner in the performance stakes, but hell I'd definately be happy with the 330.
