Not a bad metaphor. If you asked me which one I'd want for a x-country drive, it's clearly the 335i. But for zipping around town, the 325Cic definitely wins.
I guess I'm lucky either way. I live in SF now, but when I'm back in Seattle I get to drive one of my friend's two BMWs. Not a bad deal, right?
