Mein Auto: 328
Most of the M-sport packages in the color I wanted were either fully loaded or bare, and they seem to be in short supply here so I was pretty much limited to this one dealer if I wanted one. Wasn't expecting to pay that much from the start and I don't really need all those options, but this thing was pretty sweet so now it's pretty hard for me to look at anything else. I liked the performance of the 328 a lot. I had a 325 back in 2001 and can't believe how dramatically better this drove. I haven't tested the 335 though so I can't compare. Is the difference enough that I should try it out or will I be more than happy with an M-line 328?

But I reckon your questions will invite a myriad of responses, which is fine since you posted for feedback.

BMWs quickly balloon up in price when you start checking off the options boxes. In my own very personal view, I probably would not have spent 50K on a 328i--I could see myself with a bad case of driver's remorse the next day. (Furthermore, unless you don't plan on driving the car that much, I would not be thrilled with 10k per year. Then again, I drive a lot so 10K sounds like an ultra low mileage for me.)

Whatever you do, best of luck and enjoy your car. Hey, at the end of the day, it's a BMW you'll be driving.
