The 335 has a lot more torque, so at-speed acceleration is also noticeably greater than that of the 328. The N54 in the '09 335s can also be easily tuned to get even more torque and horsepower. The turbos add power, complexity, and potential downstream maintenance costs.

I have an '09 335 and have never regretted spending the extra money. There's a ton of opinions on this. Strangely, they all seem to lean towards "I have the (enter model) and it's clearly superior to the other one!"
