So, for auto it's identical. For manual, the 328i has some advantage.

This is for non-x-drive. For x-drive, both cars are listed as TBD.
According to Transport Canada, the 335i RWD gets better fuel economy than a 328i Xdrive - 5.9L/100 kms hwy vs 6.1L/100 kms hwy for the 328i Xdrive !!!

If I were the OP, I would resist spending $2000 extra for Xdrive and buy a RWD 328i or RWD 335i + a set of proper snow tires for the winter. I have driven many BMWs so equipped in winter conditions and never been stuck.

As for extra features that come with the 335i, for Canada at least, the 335i comes standard with Sport Auto w/ paddles, Sport seats, Sportline, adaptive bi-xenon lights, high beam assistant, larger brakes + six cylinder power/torque.

As others have suggested: drive both the 328i and 335i and decide for yourself.
