I love my wide tires on my X5. Feel like I could substitute for a steamroller.

Yes...you left your opener in the loaner. It's entirely on your shoulders...take responsibility for your actions and stop trying to blame others.

I would miss the steering feel but definitely not the harsh suspension of the E9x series. Enough so I would "suffer" with the steering feel.

With $41K You can do a lot of repair / maintenance on your 335i. The sensible option is to keep your existing car. You've owned it from day one and know everything about it. Will it require some...

Agreed. I found it to be quite responsive on the highway (the dealer I obtained the loaner from is right off the interstate) and had no problems quickly navigating traffic.

It's all about setting expectations. If you're a HP whore than the 320 isn't for you. With 500 RWHP a stock 335 isn't for you either.

I thought both were acceptable. In the other thread several comparisons were made to the E46 series. Having owned a 1999 328i I'd say the 320 felt peppier than the 328. Comparable to the 2001 330xi I...

Of course it doesn't because it has less power than the 328. Just like the 328's performance doesn't compare to the 335.

This is why I chose to buy an E46 328i over the 323i. By the time I added up many of the options I wanted the 328I became a better value. It still cost more but I got more for that extra money.
