Mein Auto: 328XI Coupe
09 335i vs 11 328i

Hi everyone, I am looking to purchase a new 3 series. I'm not a BMW expert so I would like to ask you guys for your opinion. between the

2009 335i or 2011 328i x-drive which would you choose?

both automatic, with only 5,000km difference between the 2 and $1,000 price difference.
is one prone to more issues? pros or cons?

Thank you in advance.

Each is a very different option. 335 will have different use from an x-drive 328. Why are these your only two options?

If I was looking for a new 3 series, neither would be on the list.

Seems to me, from looking at the thread topics that pre-2011 335i has more volume of 'what is wrong...', while 328i -- especially 2011 -- are considered pretty reliable in contrast.

The average 2009 would have about 30k more miles than an average 2011, based simply upon national mean annual driving patterns.

The average 2009 is also out of warranty, while the average 2011 is still within warranty.

What else do you need to consider?!

There's an echo in here! Did someone take the terminator off the end of the Ethernet line?
