Please note that I said I am "a little disappointed" with the 3013 328. I am not strongly disappointed with the car and we plan on keeping it. It gets great mileage (averaging 27 mpg) and I hope it develops more power as it breaks in (only 600 miles currently) and I can start using Sport mode more often.

I did test drive both the 2013 328s and a 335s and came away from the test drive feeling the 328 was fast enough, and for daily driving it is fine. Also, I got a heck of a discount for buying at on the 30 of December. The price difference of the discounted 328 vs a full charge 335 was in excess of $6,500. Both cars felt a little big and not as responsive as earlier 3 series models. To me the 3 series seemed to be getting more 5 like with every model. I base this on having owned a lot of BMWs (8 or more) and currently owning 4 3-series cars (2013 328, 2011 335, 2009 328, 2007 335 (this car is a rocket)).

So I will be driving the 328 to work and around town. But on the weekend trips down fun roads (ex. Highway 1 ) I will take the 2011 335 because it is a more fun car. More power, a little nibbler, and better balanced.

I really hate to ask this, but why do you own three E9x's; 2007 335i, 2011 335i, and a 2009 328?

Once you tasted the sound and appreciated the deep growl of the I6, there is definitely a sense of step-down when driving a N20 car, even it is faster. A good chunk of the 4-6K$ difference will be recovered at resale anyway.

This is one of the many reasons you should lease. I have a 2013 328xi Sportline with tune, intake, exhaust and it's really fun to drive...no complaints.

But when my lease is up I'm definitely going for the 6 cylinder in 3 or 4 series trim. I'll then have had both engines for 3 years and can see if the 6 is really worth it to me.

...faster than the outgoing 328 E90. I should have been clearer.
