long term, I suppose I'd rather keep a non-AWD 335 rather than keeping an AWD 335.

Beyond the usual things I'd worry about (turbo maintenance, walnut blasting, etc), with the AWD 335's, I'd be...

Really? (about the build quality) Not knocking your perceptions, since they closely mirror what I felt about Acuras, but I honestly would have thought the Acura's build quality might feel superior. ...

You're kinda caught between a rock and a hard place. You can do just the one, but later, you'll likely end up paying a shop $800-$1000 to go back in and replace the thermostat.

Funny, I'd take the 2008 335 over the 2008 TL (even the SH-AWD version).

However, I'd take the Acura over any of the current F30 models (2012+ sedan & 2013+ coupes)

Think I'm going to get the alignment checked anyways. Better safe than sorry I guess.

Crank? or Wheel?

Either way, that's pretty impressive and a rather nice cost effective way of upgrading.

Still sounds more cost effective than upgrading the 328.

Last alignment was in October, but that was done using my winter wheels and tires.
