Granted I'm not looking to get a 335 or anything and it seems the 328/330 is a little more hassle free just cause it has less things to worry about...

Also, how's the bmw community in the local area? you guys get together from time to time, have tech days, things like that?
I'm have an aftermarket extended warranty, which got void along time ago due to my mods . I say warranties are only for daily drivers that that you wouldn't mod. Warranty companies would try to find just about anything to void it. That's why I do all my maintenace myself. Has far as a hassle free car, it's all in how the car is maintained. I know guys that had bigger maintenance bills on their 328i than my 335i.
As far as tech days, have them pretty much as needed. Just post up what you need done.
