Coming from E90 325i --> F30 328 or 335?

Ah it's good to be back on the forums - what a great resource for enthusiasts, buyers, and novices. I posted here hundreds of times in the span of 2-3 months back in 2005-2006 when I bought my 2006 E90 325i. After 104k sweet miles, it's time to retire my E90 and come back here for some more excellent opinions.

Now I'm debating the 328xi vs 335xi (Yes - I'm a lazy owner who doesn't want to change tires 2x/year). Coming from my 2006 with 215HP and 185lb/torque, will the 300/300 335 be too much of a shock? I am looking for something with more ooomph. I love my E90 but always wished I had a little more power. I know the 328 is no slouch at 245/258. I've even read the 328 outhandles the 335 which is interesting.

I haven't gotten into too much configuration yet and money while is somewhat of an issue, it is really more secondary this time around. So really I'm think between the following 2 configs:

328xi
MSport
Lighting Package
Dynamic Handling Package
Premium Package
MSRP ~$49,000

vs

335xi
Sportline
Dynamic Handling
MSRP ~49,000

So for the same price, on the 328 I get the MSport and Premium package since xenons are standard on the 335. Is this worth the tradeoff for the 6 cyclinder engine and 50HP/50Torque. I'd be curious to hear thoughts on handling of 328 vs 335 because I've heard differing opinions. What's important to me is a nice balance of power and handling (understanding that my current 2006 E90 is underpowered IMO).
