Transmission Differences between the 28i and 35i

Hi all,

Could anyone help shed some insight on the differences in transmission used in the 28i versus the 35i?

The 28i has an 8-speed transmission whereas the 35i uses an (older) 6-speed transmission. I thought there must be a reason why the 6-speeds are used on the more powerful car as it seemed inferior to the 8-speed, especially when all the X3's and X5's I see in a deal use the newer-looking 8-speed transmission.

What does that do performance-wise?
Maintenance? (probably more expensive on the 8-speed... how much?)
Any opinions at all?

Thanks.
