I've read quite a few posts on why people bought the 328 or the 335. Some of the reasons I've read apply to me, others don't. To the op, I bet if you were to pool all the answers on why some of us chose a 328 or 335, it would come down to individual tastes and preferences. There is no evidence that one is "better" than the other.
For me, I considered the 328 because:
- it got better gas mileage
- it has a revolutionary new engine
- didn't want to wait for a factory order (no 335s on the lot)
- CA was making me a great deal on it
- it's a BMW!
In the end, I bought a 335 because:
- wanted more power
- liked the exhaust note (I'm coming from a 350Z which has a beautiful one)
- wasn't that much more $$/might as well
- build options
- hate the numbers 2 or 8, lucky number is 5 (kidding)
In the end, you choose the one that works for you, not the one that everyone thinks you should get.

I don't know from personal experience, but a 328i I'm sure has better balance. My opinion is, 99% of all drivers won't notice it 99% of the time. I know we all think we are Michael Schumacher or Jeremy Clarkson, but we aren't. Of course, it depends on where you're driving, but most of the time a 335i will be quicker. On a tight autocross track, it's sensible that the 150lbs makes a difference and the 60 extra HP doesn't come into play.
Lastly, I'm going to call BS on you making this late braking moves in the canyons. Come on. Seriously. You're not making anyone either spin or move over. You're just tailgating. An F30 is nice, but there are many more faster cars. There's always a bigger fish.
