    335i versus M3 round 4,982 - DCT M3 with Dinan tune versus 6-speed manual FBO (full bolt on) 335i with meth from a roll

    Here is yet another chapter in the 335 versus M3 saga. In this video the 335 comes out on top although it takes a little while for the 6-speed manual car to overcome the DCT (dual clutch transmission) shift speed advantage. The M3 only has a Dinan tune which in all honesty is just about the weakest tune for an M3 money can buy. Along with no other supporting modifications, it is not surprising at all to see the 335 with full bolt ons and meth injection pull up top as it should.

    The video does a good job showing how much shift speed matters especially depending on starting speed. The lower the starting speed and the more gears the 335 needs to row, the more the advantage for the DCT M3. The 335 shows its greater horsepower once in the higher gears where less shifting and more time in gear takes place.

    The DCT M3 needs a more aggressive tune, pulley, scoops, and exhaust to alter this outcome. Regardless, enjoy the video below courtesy of BimmerBoost member @WNF_335i

    Surprising, considering the mods the M3 should have been obliterated not just crushed, the DCT makes a huge difference.

    335i 6AT with Alpina flash would make things alot clearer.

    Alpina flash does nothing for speed. At least nobody has proven that it does at this point.

    The alpina flash isn't even close to the DCT. I always thought it was but my car was just at the dealership for a few days and they gave me a 335is loaner. I was amazed by the difference between DCT and my alpina auto. Still a night and day difference. Almost the same as alpina vs stock.

    If nothing for speed then how does it make for a better challenge. Simply put, the Alpina flash has not been proven to be better in either a 1/4 mile race or a roll race. The outcome would be the same with a stock tranny flash.

    The DCT in the M3 is in another league compared to the AT available in the 335i. I never realized how fast that transmission was until I drove one. From the videos I've seen of the Alpina transmission flash, it wouldn't have made any difference.

    That's a bolt on M3. An SC'd one should DESTROY you.

    I thought the M3 held up a lot better than I first thought. As mentioned, DINAN doesn't make a very aggressive tune for this car, and against a FBO 335i, I was expecting the kill to be worse. He walked away - but did just that. Walked. DCT is pretty amazing.

    There is no doubt that the 335i w/ AT transmission is a faster than a 6MT 335i because of shift timing. The reason this race is so close is clearly because of the DCT Tranny on the M3 if the M3 was 6MT with just a flash it would be a way easier kill for the 335. People dont realise how much quicker a DCT M is compared to 6MT and always leave it out of the description when racing. Now a FBO DCT M3 would be a nice run against a FBO 335i w/ meth.
