Money no object, the 335 is the obvious winner. The xi is just heavier and less responsive, not to mention thirstier.

I'm not surprised. The roof rack affect aerodynamics therefore the increased wind resistence causes more fuel to burn. Also, the winter set has 4 equal rims, the summer has larger rear rims,...

After a lease generally they replace the brakes and tires. If that's done, the only warranty is the way you drive it and the proper maintenance. You can cover wipers, battery and other nick nacks...

I would definitely keep it. You paid a lot of money for extras, and the car has very low miles, may as well enjoy it. If you give the car back, the dealer will wash it, vacuum it and sell it for more...

You don't need the snap in adapter. Good choice: Y cable. Even better (and cheaper) choice: a regular charging cable and a 3.5mm jack cable. Both will cost you $2 on ebay. Done.

I strongly suggest a jack cable for a number of reasons: inexpensive, better sound quality, longer battery life of the phone.

This is one of the downfalls of sport package. You can improve the ride by reducing the size of the rim and thus getting more rubber.

They are certainly 16, they came stock with my 2011 323i. I believe they were supplied on late 2010 models as well. But they are not 17 for sure.

I believe tan interior goes well only with selected exterior colours (white, bronze, blue). It does have a great advantage, it doesn't burn as much in the summer time. It also gets dirty faster.

Given the option, I would go for the 328i RWD with a sport package. Less weight, sporty handling, less maintenance, less $$. But that's me.

Definitely the 328. More horsepower, newer, less mileage, and it's a CPO. For 4k, no contest.
