The TSX is a 2.4L I4 putting out 201bhp. In auto form, it's definitely not very impressive in a straight line.

The TL vs. 330 debate has been disputed many time, try searching... but yes auto for auto it would be a close race, with an edge to the TL. The TL Type-S would smoke a 330.

from C&D and/or R&T...

'01 330 = 14.8
'08 TSX = 15.5
'04 TL = 14.7

330 and TSX were manuals, but results should be representative.

That said, there are a few 4-cyls. in the TSX price class that will kill an E46in a straight line.

Id still keep my xi...I drove the TL, surprisingly, I had only two complaints: 'bit excessive road noise on the highway' and 'I wish the radio got louder'...I paid less for my xi and I'd take my BMW if they were both offered free...now, the TL type-S...with all the goodies...that'd be tempting.
