New Member Intro
Currently driving 2005 X3 3.0. I will be purchasing a 328 or 335 (haven't decided which one yet) this fall with European Delivery. I lived in Germany for 5 years so going back will be great!
My main questions:
328 vs. 335 of course-gas mileage, handling, cost
I will be selling my X3. It has Premium Package, Navigation, 38,000 miles right now. Great shape. Anyone interested?

I guess its welcome and goodbye then :)

I am a big fan of both the 3 and 5 wagon but I think the 3 will be too small for me when I have to change next year. Or if I can get a good offer I might go with the X3 again. My 07 have been perfect. Only problem is I don't drive to much.

Welcome. We might be seeing you over in the e90 forum...

If you ask over there, you are going to get 335i about 10 to 0 or more.

I'll go against the trend and say 328i.

I've test-driven and autocrossed both. The big difference is power. Other than that they can be very similar if you option them out the same.

On the street, I preferred the slower NA car. The turbo's power is entirely useless here in Atlanta.

On the autocross track, you will go faster with a 335i. No question. Still I found the 328i more fun. The 328i is not a slow car....

The 335i has more of an exhaust note if you care about that sort of thing.

Then there is the price.

With our Miata coming off lease in 2 months we are shopping for a replacement.

Current candidates:

128i 'vert; 128i coupe, 328i coupe, Mini Cooper Clubman, another X3, another Miata, RX-8, clean e30.

X3 is only going to happen if we find out we can't get another e83 X3 for fall 2009.

Still have to look at the VW...
