No snobbiness intended. I consider myself lucky to have ordered a 335. If I could have got a 320d or 330d in Canada, it would have been a different story. Fact is, all we have is 323i, 328i, 335i, and 335d. To get what I wanted, the 335i was the best value (included all msport options).
As for the original reason for this thread, my personal opinion is that a de-badged 3 series looks cleaner regardless of engine size.
