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.
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...
