TL type S would win the battle. I used to have a 2002 tl-s. The 330 would have the advantage up until 40 mph, after that the tl-s will just pull ahead.
TL-S 0-60 is 6.4

He didnt ask about the new beast of a TL, he probably was asking about the last body style. At that same rate I'm assuming you meant non-ZHP 330i. Sorry I don't know numbers, just wanted to clear things up if this is what you really meant
