Mein Auto: BMW M428i

My wife is a reasonable pedestrian driver (wouldn't believe it though if you look at the tickets on her driving record) so the lower horsepower would do ok for her.

Need to do a little more math and also curious about the residual and money factor differences and what the end result is. Not sure when I can see those though. I also noticed they did get rid of the Ultimate Package on the 328xi.

Thanks for your feedback
Glad to be of assistance, and since money isn't a big deal consider this:

The 335i is overkill. The 320i is underkill. The 328i is The Car.

So if you don't need to shave a few bucks, don't. I wouldn't. You don't need to mess with perfection. The 328i is perfection. So discard thoughts of 320i, focus on the 328xi, and get it with the right options.

The 320i is a car to help those that can't afford a BMW get into one at $299 a month. Sounds like you're not in that place, so don't force it.
