Nice I thought about going with the 19's but did not want to buy new tires right now with the wheels. The 19" probably look better to, but I was weary of them because I've heard they are easy to bend.

I guess time will tell. As you pointed out the newer models both have turbo's now.

Not sure if the driving style does not affect the reliability of the car though.

That's what I was hoping thanks for the info. I know in the past the 335 was a lot more expensive to maintain compared to the 328. Same when comparing the 535 to the 528.
