Exclamation Opinions needed!; E90 325i vs. Mazda 6i

Alright, before I get the obligatory "post all E90 content in the E90fanatics forum" from our fearless leader, I already did, lol! Guess it'll take a long while to get a response there.

My friend has an '04 Mazda 6i (4cyl) and is looking for a new car, and the E90 325i seems to be the car of choice. Also, he is looking at the Lexus IS250. He's has been eyeing a BMW since I bought mine in '03. I think the new E90 328i will be a bit too high for what he wants to spend (high 30's), but the 325i seems to fit in the lower 30's. Would some here recommend a CPO E46 330i? Possibly a ZHP (of one can be found for around 30K), or go with the E90 325i. Or get the Lexus? Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I'd go for the CPO E46 ZHP, perhaps even an M3 since prices are likely to start coming down (after all, the 335i will be about as fast soon). Then again, I'm not a big fan of the E90s.
