335i Sedan Sport Package is 287
IMHO I think the 328 Sport Package rims actually took a step backwards aesthetically (with the exception of the 285 option), although the non sport package rim and optional 17" is an improvement.
I'm actually very happy with my 2008 335i Sedan Sport Package Star Spoke 162 rims and that is one thing that I'm not bummed about with the refresh (along with the front bumper). While I like the 287s since they come on the 335i ZSP coupes and are awesome for the coupes, I really like the 162s better on the sedan (although they are "old" now).
I'm curious to see what will come on the coupes for 2009.
Pros of 2009 - Revised iDrive, Hood, LED Taillights, headlight/DRL/Cornering lamp changes, Oyster and Saddle Brown Leather, Front PDC
Cons of 2009 - Price increase, Logic 7 is now an option, lower front fascia, no more Sparkling Graphite (they should have added Space Gray instead of replacing Sparkling Graphite)
Overall, you can't lose with a 2008 or a 2009 in my book....
