At best 5000$ is not a significant difference. 328i will recoup a good chunk of of it at resale. I did the pricing too with a manual, sunroof and optional sport pack and I don't see 5000$. At 42500$, the 328i was reasonable, IMO.
ATS 2.0T manual 's 19mpg in city is not very good. It is saved because it runs on regular gas.
At least Caddy seems aggressive on the lease rates.
Yeah, your right it does have a $900 lighting package but that's only after you get the $3,500 lux package, unless BMW changed HIDs as a standalone option in the last few months; so HIDs cost you $4,600 vs. $800 that they were on the E90 as a standalone option.
A 328i Sport Line is $39,000. An ATS 2.0T with sunroof and MT is $34,615. Price difference is $4,385.
And the 328i get 22 city MPG (EPA) but thats with the annoying engine stop function. Put the BMW in engine stop as disabled and I bet it would only get 19 MPG too.
