Mein Auto: 1999 328ic
Buying 335 or 328, help me decide***Decision Made***

I briefly test drove two 2008's...a 328, 6-speed manual and a 335, auto(was advertised as a manual, so it was not what I was expecting to drive). I am comparing these with my daily driver 1999 328 convertible. First up the 328; workmanlike, typical BMW, smooth ride with sharp handling when needed. Power off the line, not too impressive. My 99 defiantly feels quicker 0-60.

Next the 335; It felt more like the "ultimate driving machine" than the 328(both had the sports package). As far as power, it had more "punch" than the 328 and my 99, but(my personal opinion only!) the automatic transmission took all the driving experience(and some of the engines power) out of the driving experience.

So for me its going to be a 335i with a 6 speed.
