Mein Auto: 335i Convertible
My friend just took delivery of his M3 without the HK system, and I took delivery of my 335i vert with it. After driving around in both for quite a while, I can say with great conviction that I would get it again. There are two things he envies: That I can do the Optimus Prime maneuver, and the sound system.

Oddly enough, it's not when I listen to music that I've noticed it really shines -- it's when something simple like talk radio is on. I can maintain a lower volume level and make out every word, whereas in the M we need to crank it up a few extra notches. The clarity gap is quite evident in those situations. If I were in your shoes, I'd be sure to drive around with both systems and listen to a variety of offerings. It's not all about the thump
