I've read posts about unbadged Brembo's on the 335, but do not have any confirmation - thus why I asked in my original post.
My ideal BMW's are M3's.. in fact, the only BMW's I've owned have all been M3's - e30, e36, e46.
But with two kids, two mortgages, and a wife who has an unhealthy obsession with shoes and bags; the 335xi is a good balance between fun and practical.
I just compared the two build sheets and I'm leaning towards the 335. A few key options on the 328 are standard on the 335. The 328 has that the 335 doesnt is the premium package, and I'm sure I can live with pressing the key fob to unlock the doors myself. But, the 328 has the M Sport package, and I LOVE that front bumper!
