Question 2010 camaro v6 vs bmw 335i?

Heres my dilema, im 16 and getting my 2010 2lt camaro in about a month and two weeks. Shes getting a used bmw 335i, even though shes 15. Well the beamer is a v8 and both are making around about the same horses. Idk about torque though. So my question is will her 8 cyl be able to beat my v6? If not im gonna have to mod mine to beat hers. I know it shouldnt matter but my car HAS to be faster then my lil sisters.

The 335i is a 6 cylinder 100%

With that being said its still faster than the v6 because of a sizable weight difference and its twin turbos

awww well thats slightly depressing..... I need to get a lot more torque out of my v6 then I guess. Cant afford a supercharger/turbocharger and im pretty sure there is still no tune. So I guess a CAI, headers, and exaust? Would that help me beat it?

You are in trouble the 2007 335i is a twin turbo direct injected 6 that turns the 1/4 mile in 13.9 seconds at 105 mph.. and just some simple mods will make that car quickerNOt to much you can do to get that v6 Camaro that fast on your budget...I really hope you and your sister dont race on the street...why are you so concerned about beating her?

I didnt think it was going to be that bad... dang. Looks like Ill have to either go cheap with the nitrous or save up for a supercharger. It would take a while for that though. Im not going to race her on the street. I just dont want my little sister to even think she can beat me haha. Its a sibling rivalry thing i guess....

Ill definetly be careful, I had a bad experience when I was driving my dads friend home in his vette the other day. He was drunk and pushed my leg down on the gas until we were at about 110 and then tried to make me hit the porsche we were following to get there

Your parent's don't happen to OWN an insurance company, do they?

Your only solution to beating your sister is to unplug two or more spark plug wires/coil paks.

Your parents are NUTS to let either of you out in those two cars. Your sister should be getting a 318i at the MOST if she has to have a BMW. As for the V6 Camaro - it was PLENTY FAST enough for me and I was driving an LS1 Vette!

Good luck. And at 16, you have not waited long at all. It took me 21 years for me to get my dream car...that is 5 more than you even have breathed. Relax. Be safe. We need Camaro guys who survive to keep the brand alive.

The 335 is the twin turbo and will easily do 60 in the 4.5 range. BMW always states performance times that are conservative.

You really can't mention the 335i and the 6 banger Camaro in the same sentence.

With just a tune the 335 dips into the 12's in the qtr. It is a beast. That is why BMW needed to juice up the M3. The 335 with a tune was taking out the M3 in the last model year. It was supposed to bridge the gap between the 330 and the M3 (once the new M3 came out) but since the E46 was still out when the 335 came out it was a no brainer if you wanted BMW performance for 10-15k less then an M3 sticker.

My buddy has one and this guy goes through cars like they are water. And he got rid of his juiced Legacy GT, S2000, sport bike, etc etc and BOUGHT the 335 off lease b/c he loved it so much. That is saying a lot when he "settled down" with the right girl. lol

The 335 will give the SS a run stock for stock. With a tune it will take out the SS through the qtr but then the V8 will pull. So don't even bother racing or whatever you are thinking with the V6. You would need to put in way too much $ to even compete with that car.

Some of you are honestly ridiculous. Yall are saying that I havent waited long at all for my dream car but truth be told Ive been waiting ever since the concept was released. Which is alot longer then most of the people on this forum. Most of the people on this forum have been waiting ever since they saw how cool "bumblebee" looked in transformers and had to have the car. You cant say that most arent looking for getting more power out of their cars.

I think what most people are saying is that you live in a very fortunate household, congrats to you and your family, and for you to be able to live your dream at such a young age.

I, for one, kinda am glad we've got youngsters willing to carry the musclecar torch into the future when us old farts are gone. Hey you could have been dreaming of a ricer, so the Camaro's future is indeed bright

Thanks for being a very understanding individual. Just because im getting a 2lt camaro doesnt mean that im not going to have to eventually pay for it. Im still going to have to pay for just about everything in the longrun but I cant afford the insurance. Thanks though.

This is my dream car currently but once I get older my dream car is the... BUGATTI VEYRON!

After spending a weekend at Pebble Beach and photographing many of those newfangled Veyrons I can tell you the sun is setting fast on that car's popularity, a low mile one at RM did not even begin to bring the reserve at 900k bid. Magnificent automobile, but the damn thing weighs 4200 for Chrissakes.

I really fell in love with the worlds first real supercar, the Ferrari 288 GTO. At 2550 lbs with all that power, its just pure love, and people were beating each other over the head to buy it
