I hear the f30 and the 335i have comparable performance. True?

Yeah, I hope so. That's where it belongs.

I was thinking of buying a 2010 M5, but now I'm seriously considering a new F30.

The only turbocharged car I've ever driven is a black convertible hard top 335i coupe. Really loved it, wish I could afford one but, but even then I wouldn't want to deal with the faulty hpfp or the multiple error codes.

I would go F30. The maintenance costs and MPG on the E60 M5 is atrocious! But probably BMW's best engine of all time...

Which F30? 328 or 335?

F30 328i had good amount of power and didn't sound so bad for a 4 cylinder. I had already driven the Cadillac ATS before so that's what I expected it to sound like, and it's much better (aka, sounds less like a blender). Of course the new car didn't have the steering feel and pedal response of the E46 but that is to be expected with the EPS. The car I drove was a no-line base model 328i with few options. Love the new interior layout as well, and the exterior looks great. I'd like to get one in a year or so.

Yeah, I know. The MPG I can deal with, but the hassle of the extended warranty, especially since NAC isn't covering M5's anymore, plus the fact I'd own two SMG cars and that's probably be pushing the odds. It's just not a very practical car either, although it's a damn awesome one. I've been researching it a lot and some of the repair costs are insane. Extended warranty is pretty much mandatory (and pretty damn expensive).

I'm keeping the M3 so I'm thinking the 328. I'm going to drive both next weekend and see which one tickles me more and if the 335 is worth the premium. It'll be a 6 speed either way.

I couldn't find any videos, just a lot of broken down BMWs. Darn these unreliable things.
