As currently constituted on the F30, the 328i is a fantastic car. For those that need a bit more power (and I mean a tiny bit more in realworld conditions) the 335i is an inexpensive option for those who want it.

Doesn't mean that the 328i is an inferior car. Just means that the 335i is a touch more.

I suppose it really comes down to what you prioritize. If you value dollars, mileage, or perhaps lighter weight more highly than power and the smooth straight 6 (and a few other 335i specifics) then the 328i could be the better car "for you"...and vice-versa.

Reminds me a little bit of the whole 330i vs ZHP 330i vs M3 situation in the E46 realm and 528i vs 540i sport vs M5 discussions in the E39 world.
