The F30 328i is undoubtedly a lot more car for the money than an E90 328i. Unfortunately it lags in sound and steering feel, which are the two most favorite things I like about my BMW. 335i solves one of those, but at $53k it's serious money these days - I thought my ZHP was pricey at $45k.
We will let him chime in, but the way he worded it-made it sound like we were talking NEW cars.

The sound of the N20 is the biggest let down for me.

But I am going to be taking care of that with a free exhaust from Roque Engineering(my car is the development vehicle being used) and perhaps an intake as well. Around 8-10whp from the exhaust will be nice too. I am still waiting to see dynos that prove if intakes on the N20 do anything other than noise.
