I just sold my '08 535 xi and I liked it better than the 535 M sport which I test drove.
I was torn between the 335 is and 335 xi, I ended up with the xi. Plenty of BMW for me so far. But if you never need the AWD, I would go for the is.

IMHO
YMMV

Wow! That's a very hard question. I wish you hadn't asked it because it is very confusing.

If I had to choose I'd say that you should be the decider. I am afraid that I will make a wrong choice and then where will I be? Up a creek without a paddle that's where, and a laughing stock.

This is a 3 forum so it is good you said 335i and maybe you should say that even if you don't in real life. But this is not real life so I will say 335i.

Easy, if you don't need 4 doors then the 'IS is my choice for you. Or if you are a rather large man the 5 might be a better fit. Both autos are good choices, just select the one that best suites your needs/life style.

I'm asking you guys cause your BMW owners and you can give me your input on the models you own. I know this isn't a 5 series forum but most likely you've owned one have a family or friend that does or test drove one. I really like the 335is I like the car a lot but I have a 1yr old daughter so I was looking at the F10 535 M Package but even though it has a M Package but only person that's with me is my daughter in the back. Her Car seats fit in the back seat.

Also l on the 335is I found the way I want the car color wise inside and outside exterior and interior but the F10 535 I don't like none of the colors cause they don't match or look good and I don't want to spend money into fixing the inside (cost a Arm and a Leg)

Chop362 what model would you prefer? I have a 1yr daughter. I don't want to deal with the hassle of taking her in & out of the back seat.

I have a 335is and love it. Regardless of the two doors when I take my 3 year old daughter in it. Her big Britax fits quite well

5 series is bigger and so if you need the extra space then that would probably be a positive. If its just you most of the time then the 3 will be lighter, faster. I just switched from a 550 to 750 because my wife thought the 5 was too small for kids! I guess it all about what suits your lifestyle.

You answered your own question. You need a sedan because you "don't want to deal with the hassle of taking her in & out of the back seat."

Get one of each. One for comfort and solid power. One for the "just try to blow by me" times...

I think you'll find it a pain & a tight fit to constantly lift her in & out of the car seat. Especially a low 335is. Until she can get in & out by herself you're gonna have to help her. Your back will eventually be sore. Hope you have a good chiropractor.

That being said, I have a 1 year old & will be getting the 2014 F10 535d xdrive in Sept.

Sounds like you don't want to give up the lifestyle for practicality. That's cool, like the guy w/a 911 & baby seat in the back.

You will have to choose between convenience and being able to turn. Good luck!
