The drive select and sport diff options are really nice to have as well. My tuned 135i was MUCH faster but with a baby on the way, the coupe wasn't cutting it.
But no major gremlins correct? Just as a point of reference, the 335 had the following problems

1.) 4 fuel pumps
2.) break squeal
3.) wing mirror motor
4.) washer fluid motor

so on and so forth

Also OP; this is a good choice. You can't complain about making such a solid choice. Sometimes I feel that people are under the illusion that expensive = better; the truth cannot be further from that. I suppose it has to do with low self esteem, but do let us know how the scooby feels in terms of drivability and fun factor. BTW; are you getting the hatch or sedan (assuming its the current gen)
