2008 M3 DCT vs 2007 328i vs 2009 335i

Assuming maintenance and conditions are identical, I'm looking at 3 options for a used car (EDITED: all 3 models are E93 convertibles)

2008 M3 DCT
69k miles
$31k OTD


2007 328i Auto
55k miles
$20k OTD


2009 335i Auto
51k miles
$25.5 OTD


Which one of these would you guys prefer?

M3 1st because of the DCT. 335 2nd because it has the N54 (tuning capabilities). 328 last place (too slow).

As above each is worth 5 grand more than the model below and the 328 is overpriced, you can buy 2007 335's for that price with that mileage, it is a 15k car.

Thank you all for the replifes.

Sorry I didn't make myself clear. All three models are E93 convertibles. They are the best deals in my area.

I think I care about reliability/maintenance-cost/attractiveness more so than performance. For my daily commute, I think handling won't be much of a difference. Performance is nice to have, but I don't sprint much even with my Z. M3 is definitely much sexier and eye turning.

Main concern about the M3 is the higher mileage and lack of iDrive. It's got a after-market navigation+backup camera, and some cosmetic mods like HID, angel headlight, Carbon fiber steering trim.

I'd go with the M3 if you can afford it, but I'd say it's in a different class, remember the cost of everything will be higher. Then the 328i, I'd stay away from the 335i if reliability is a concern. I have a 328i e93 for daily use and so far it has been an amazing car.
